I’m still feeling unsure about going to see this film. I love the books so much I’m afraid that this will ruin them for me. I’d made my mind up that I was going to watch it, because the trailers seemed interesting, the characters looked true to the books, and sure had the Harry Potter films ruined the books for me? No, they hadn’t. Plus it was a Spielberg film. He couldn’t mess up Hergé’s masterpiece that much, could he?
Then, to prove the power of journalism, I read a pessimistic review of it. One line sticks in my head: Fans should consider giving it a miss. So now I am back to my dilemma: to go to see it or not?
