Not apropos of much, but this line from an article regarding some early reviews of the new Adventures of Tintin film by some of the diehard fans of the books did cause me to chuckle.
Responding to criticism of the new film, he said: "They have created their own interpretation, in the same way different theatre directors interpret Shakespeare. If this movie brings people back to the books so much the better. To be in a position to have Peter Jackson and Steven Spielberg taking it on � it's good for Belgium and it's good for the work." He added that scholars went on to create the New Testament "because they weren't happy with the Old Testament."
Never let it be said that fans don�t take their source material seriously.
