The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn
Definitely growing on me, this motion-capture franchise launch by Spielberg.
So-so animated fast food for kids, with Ben Stiller, Jada Pinkett Smith, Chris Rock and David Schwimmer voicing a quartet of New York zoo animals accidentally transported to the Indian Ocean island that gives the movie its name. Perfunctory plot but held together by memorable background characters like the escape-minded penguins, and Sacha Cohen Baron as the king of the lemurs.
Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa
Tighter sequel plays to the strengths of the original – a lot more King Julien, again directed by Eric Darnell and Tom McGrath.
