The Adventures of Tintin

Yesterday morning, Beth and I saw a preview of The Adventures of Tintin. It's a little odd to go to the movies at 10:00 am on a Saturday morning, but hey, it's free!

The movie was lots of fun. The motion capture looks great (and this is from someone who's never warmed up to stuff like The Polar Express), and the action sequences and stunts are both outrageous and believable. I've read some Tintin before, and the characters seemed to be all treated well. Captain Haddock is the stand-out character, and in many ways the movie is about him, as he's the one who grows and changes. He also gets to have a sword fight with container cranes, which is pretty cool!

Ok so my computer totally crashed the other day :( I think it's a RAM issue and I've ordered some new RAM which will be here during the week, and then I will try to fix it. I'm hoping that's the issue or else it's really going to suck to lose all the stuff I didn't back up. Anyway, so the Frosty Lady set has been put on hold. I was in the middle of editing it and it's stuck on my crashed comp. I still have the originals on my camera so if I can't fix my computer I will be able to start over on them, but I want to see if I can fix it first and save myself the time. I am currently working on my old crappy laptop. It's slow and has a super old version of photoshop on it, but at least I can still work! Here is my latest update:
