We've cleared off some space on That Shelf for our 100 of our favourite movies of the decade. We continue with a look back at 2011 on film!
Frank Miller, Tom Wheeler, and Netflix have teamed up to create a ten-episode re-imagining of the Arthurian legend.
Joe Cornish's The Kid Who Would Be King arrives in theatres on January 25th, but That Shelf wants to send you and a friend to advance screenings of the movie in Toronto, Vancouver, and Montreal on Saturday, January 19th – courtesy of 20th Century Fox!
It is rare that a film is released in Europe before North America, unless it is a European production. And while The Adventures of Tintin is technically not European, its roots are, and so its release here in the United Kingdom last week was appropriate.
Having never been to London, what I know of it comes from television and film: fish and chips, strawberries and cream; a love for tennis and football. They have funny accents and use weird words like 'bobby' instead of 'policeman', 'boot' for 'trunk', and 'shag' for 'sex'. And now, after watching Attack the Block, I know not to fuck with their inner city youth - especially if you're from another planet.
Tintin is not just a comic series; for many, it's a religion. The Adventures of Tintin has been in works for a while, and finally we have a trailer. With Steven Spielberg directing, Peter Jackson producing, Edgar Wright, Steven Moffat & Joe Cornish writing, and Jamie Bell, Nick Frost and Simon Pegg (among others) acting, I have high hopes for this film.
