Jan. 29 film picks
The Adventures of Tintin (107 min., PG) The intrepid boy reporter from the series of graphic novels makes it to the screen, courtesy of Steven Spielberg. Some of the nonstop action sequences involve gunplay, and a long flashback shows old battleships ablaze and firing cannons. A pickpocket plies his trade very successfully. The athletic Tintin and his dog, Snowy (the real star of the movie) take all kinds of acrobatic risks, unscathed. Their friend Captain Haddock is definitely an alcoholic.
