Steven Spielberg's 25 greatest movies
HitFix ranks the legend's greatest films to date
19. 'The Adventures of Tintin' (2011)
The "animated" aspect of Steven Spielberg's one-two punch in 2011 was a dazzling experience, full of the director's trademark cinematic energy. The experience put a smile on my face and kept it there. It's Spielberg invigorated, the performance-capture and animation process allowing him to do things with the camera that he had only dreamed of, conjuring angles and set-pieces that surely had existed only in his head for decades, but finally had the freedom to run wild on the screen. The film is simply a landmark of visual conception, briskly paced, assured in its capacity to entertain.
