O Stevie, if you wanted to make another Indy movie, why bother with Tintin? Not even the soundtrack composer is anyone but John Williams, to at least give the movie a different feeling from another Indiana Jones episode. And not only is the action-packed story a world apart from Herge's "Secret of the Unicorn", I couldn't understand why in this brilliant computer-animated/live action (!) film, everyone looks exactly the way Herge had illustrated them, except Tintin and Snowy? Long story short: Tintin-lovers may be annoyed, or even offended; newcomers may have a good time, because Indy was never a miss.
