DVD • Hollywood heavyweights Steven Spielberg and Peter Jackson use their collective creative muscle for the lively and energetic "The Adventures of Tintin," a computer-animated adaptation of the internationally-famous Hergé comic. Tintin is an adventurous teen who, with his dog Snowy, goes on a dangerous journey to find lost treasure. It's a robust, heroic comic adventure that reminds you of director Spielberg's other grand matinee movie, "Raiders of the Lost Ark." The Blu-ray and DVD also include wonderful behind-the-scenes featurettes showing these two cinematic giants working together, a rare inside look at a genius collaboration. Also available in a 3D Blu-ray disc.
