I watched this earlier it's a guilty pleasure of mine love it, but a few things...

The bloke who gives the introduction to the film - is it meant to be Hergé?
Why does Tarragon say "Ah it's the lightning of Rappercapack!" instead of "Rascar Capac".
Calculus puts on the mummy's bracelet, then asks the Captain to look, and the Captain replies, "Later, Nestor,later."
It keeps being referred to as the mummy's arm-band - surely it would be a wrist-band?
The poster for the film offers 90 minutes of adventure - but it's on for one hour and 15 minutes.
The funny French man at the dock who sings that Calculus is on board The Pachacamac - what's going on with him?
Chiquito (I presume it's him in the film) says, "Shame, really - I was just thinking what a nice guy you were", after the train leaves the station. Bit of an odd thing to say...?
The theme for the film is amazing: I hope its used for the upcoming film.
Please, if this film comes out again, edit the Zorrino song - however, it's not as bad as the "I Love my Donkey" song in Lake of Sharks.

The 1968 film is also a guilty pleasure as well as The Lake of Sharks and I do agree it has really odd moments too. It differs from the original Crystal/Prisoners heavily.

My two least favourite things in the film were definitely:

- Zorrino's voice: It didn't exactly suit him, and it were obviously a girl because the voice was rather high. He was really quite vunerable with it too.

- The Emperor's daughter: Just... what? She had no relevance to the plot, and sounded older than she looked. The song was a pure 'useless moment' through and through.

But then again, some bits just made me laugh on how silly it was at times:

- Tarragon's 'Rappack cappack!' and the 'I'm so shattered' before collapsing on the chandelier. The obligatory pun *rolls eyes*

- The man at the docks, wow... cringeworthy but hilarious. "... on boooard the Pa-cha-ca-maaaac!"

- The Aztec cell: When Tintin rolls backwards on the bed, making some sort of weird yowling noise. You wouldn't believe how many times I rewinded that bit.

And yes, I definitely agree on the theme, it's very catchy, and just as bad as Sharks unfortunately. There should have been a soundtrack released really of that.

This part of the film should of been destroyed or just have some music over it not that singing I cant stand it.

Yea it was rather high but some young boys could have high voices but sounded like a girl.

Oh! I didn't know where to put this, but when the film begins and the camera goes past the curtains up to the desk, did anybody notice Signora Castafiore on the second row of the left side?

Personally, I didn't liked the movie, I was rather disappointed when I watched it, but both books are the best Tintin books for me.

Temple of the Sun is actually my favourite Tintin movie. I had it on video when I was a little kid. I used to watch it all the time. I was more than pleased when they released it on DVD. There are a few changes, but it's more faithful to the original books than Belvision's TV series.

That sounds hilarious! Now I want to see the film even more! Can somebody tell me what it's like, and what happens?

Yes! There was also Irma and Wagner next to her, and I'm pretty sure behind them there were Christopher Willoughby-Drupe and Marco Rizotto, the two reporters from Paris-Flash.
