Zootropolis – A New Change

My review of the movie The Adventures of Tintin (2011)

Based on one of my favorite childhood comic books, comes one of the best ever animation motion pictures of this year. The Adventures of Tintin (2011) does a fine job in keeping the audience entertained while compromising a bit on the original story line.
