Notice for Review Requests

I receive review requests weekly. However, my personal schedule is hectic and I no longer review actively. (I also manage another blog called The Toronto Cafe and Food Blog). I do read every request sent but I apologize in advance that I do not reply to them all.

If I do take on a request, I will forewarn that it may take some time before I can review it. I am now looking to review adult fiction and self-help books instead of young adult fiction because I have grown out of it. If you are to request a review for either adult fiction or self-help, I will more likely to give it a shot.

In the meantime, Stop, Drop, and Read! serves as an archive book review blog. When I have the time, I may post a review. Thank you for understanding.

Watching on Wednesday: The Adventures of Tintin

Title: The Adventures of Tintin
Type: Movie
Age Group: Youth +
Release Year: 2011
My Rating: 5/5

The Adventures of Tintin is a beloved comic series from the 20th century. In this full featured 3-D film, Tintin and his trusty dog, Snowy, sets out a grand adventure after an innocent purchase of a ship model caused some big problems!

Prior to this movie, I never watched and read anything related to Tintin. Though I was familiar with Tintin and Snowy because they are iconic characters. When I started the film, my mom knew right away what the movie was about from the opening credits.

The first thing that I noticed was the incredibly detailed and realistic 3-D design of the entire movie. I enjoyed the fast pace action and despite it being an animated movie, it is slightly geared towards an older audience due to the violence and drunken stupor moments. I thought the characters were exceptionally well-done, from their personalities to their roles. Though I still have no idea how old Tintin really is.

This is one of those movies that an adult could thoroughly enjoy. It brings back that nostalgia of a beloved series that many people grew up with over the years. Couple it with modern 3-D technology, it's a great movie to watch!
