Book Review: The Art of The Adventures of Tintin

"Before you start flipping through this beautiful collection of CG imagery and comic inspired artwork author Chris Guise leaves a note for his readers that begins: “The way I’ve written this book is unlike most ‘Art of’ books out there.” That is only the first inclination that what you hold in your hands is very much worth your time.

TintinBookArtOfalrg12.jpg

The  Adventures of Tintin is the holiday baby of Steven Spielberg(Indiana Jones, Jaws, E.T.) and Peter Jackson (The Lord of the RingsKing Kong). This dynamic duo directed and produced, respectively, bringing Georges “Hergé” Remi’s iconic character to life on the big screen. This film had the potential to be a flop, but in the hands of these brilliant creators, Tintin will undoubtedly be a success and this book is proof of such.
Spielberg and Jackson provide forewords themselves, giving their own stories of why this project was important to them; retelling stories I heard them speak about at San Diego Comic Con earlier this year. After, we are thrown into the world of this timeless character.

For new fans there is back-story on Hergé and the evolution of Tintin and his trusted companion Snowy the dog. A look at the original stories from the past 30 years gives you a deeper appreciation for how difficult it was to find the ideal look for this modern film. The evolution of the animation is what makes this book worth buying. We are shown step by step how Weta Workshop took the art from the original cartoon and experimented with many different styles until finally finding the perfect fit.”

DISTURBED- THE LOST CHILDREN
"The first glaring observation I had while listening to Disturbed's 'B-Sides' collection is how much it sounds exactly like every single other Disturbed studio album since ‘Believe’. Now, is that a good thing or not? I think it’s a lot of both, because much like Godsmack, Disturbed are going to do what they want and could give a s*** less about adapting too much.


'The Lost Children' is a compilation of various soundtrack hits and 'B-sides' throughout Disturbed's career. So if you missed out on every mainstream horror movie soundtrack the last 10 years, you can just pick this up instead. It sounds really bad, but the shocker here is that 'The Lost Children' is actually a very stellar effort and the songs all compile together to form what feels like another studio effort.”

SLEEPING BEAUTY, the bold and provocative directorial debut from Julia Leigh, is now available to watch on SundanceNow.com and cable VOD via Comcast, Cox, Cablevision, Time Warner, and Bright House before it is released in theaters.

The Film

Death-haunted, quietly reckless, Lucy (Emily Browning) is a young university student who takes a job as a Sleeping Beauty.

This unsettling task starts to bleed into Lucy’s daily life and she develops an increasing need to know what happens to her when she is asleep. With a fearless performance by Browning, Leigh creates a bold cinematic vision; one where Lucy, both in her clandestine sexual adventures and in her mundane daily existence, lives with the same unflinching and brutal honesty.

GIVEAWAY: U2 - ‘Achtung Baby’ Anniversary Edition Deluxe Album Set

The Music

Twenty years ago, Bono described Achtung Baby as “the sound of four men chopping down  The Joshua Tree” while Jon Pareles of The New York Times wrote that “stripped-down and defying its old formulas, U2 has given itself a fighting chance for the 1990’s.”  The album won a Grammy® Award for Best Rock Performance and became one of the most significant records of the nineties and of U2’s career.

To mark twenty years since its 1991 release, an anniversary edition of U2’s Achtung Baby is due on November 1, 2011, in the United States (internationally, October 31, 2011).

Recorded over six months at Hansa Studio in Berlin and Windmill Lane in Dublin, Achtung Baby is U2’s seventh studio album.  Produced by longtime U2 collaborators, Daniel Lanois and Brian Eno with Steve Lillywhite, Achtung Baby was engineered by Flood and led by “The Fly.”  The album spawned four other singles:  “Mysterious Ways,” “One,” “Even Better Than The Real Thing” and “Who’s Gonna Ride Your Wild Horses.”

The Achtung Baby archives have unearthed some previously unreleased songs from the recording sessions. With a raft of unreleased material, video, remixes, b-sides and documentary footage discovered, a full album of demo and early versions of the final 1991 tracklisting has also been revealed.  

The Prize

- One (1) 2-CD Set of ‘U2 - ‘Achtung Baby’ Anniversary Edition’
