Turned it off about 20 minutes in. Boring and cheesy. Man Spielberg has really been sucking ass.


Man sure would be nice if there were some kind of rolling movie thread for stuff like this....quick warnings about shitty movies (which I would want if I was thinking about seeing it) but that don't need their own thread. Oh well guess that's the cost of having dictator mods.

Also the visuals might have looked cool in 3D IMAX but we're boring on my 46 inch

Herge's art is much more interesting

I watched tintin as a kid, on Hbo. I liked it then. It was great. The movie was ehhh at best. It jumped around tremendously sort of fucking up the flow if it for me. But i will say that it was not a terrible movie, just geared for a younger audience. It was worth a single viewing.

herge is one of the best comic book artists of all time, especially later in his career. all the characters are cartoons, but the backgrounds start getting hyper realistic.

It disappointed me and the 3D stuff gave me a headache. I went with my Dad, who introduced me to Tintin when I was young, and my little son, who has been a Tintin fan since he was 3. None of us liked the movie. Growing up my Dad bought my brother and me one book each, for each birthday and christmas until between us we had a complete set. I had a Jo and Zette one too, or whatever they were called.

Years ago my cop friend chastised me for being a Tintin fan because apparently he's a poofy camp little boy detective and I should have been reading something more gutsy and funny like Asterix. But I never read Asterix.

it's a common word in dutch to describe the thing in his hair. i don't know how it's called in english. maybe it doesn't exist in english. dunno.

Yeah I don't know either. Maybe a flick? If they had called him Flick in English I think people would have connected it to his hair. We don't have a word that's like crest or anything, for hair...I don't think.

I rarely appreciate Graveflower's humor, but when i do it's the racist kind

Trotskilicious
05-07-2012, 06:39 PM
is that even from one of the books, i've never even seen it before. I could pull up a half dozen images more racist than that from Red Sea Sharks.

herge's racism is a sticky subject, there's some wonderful satire of Thompson & Thomson's racist attitudes towards the chinese in the Blue Lotus and in general Herge's treatment of the Chinese is pretty respectful but there's a lot of old colonial attitudes in a lot of the stuff he made but I think that he was generally a progressive for his time and place and shouldn't be mocked by smirking nihilists like graveflower.

it's from tintin in the congo and how am i being a smirking nihilist
i didn't say anything about the guys work as a whole and nevermind, fuck you
lets just leave it at that

That'd be from Tintin in the Congo, I reckon. Crazy to think I read that as a kid totally oblivious to the reality of the Belgian Congo. I think that one's had a few edits over the years.

Quiffy!!!! Oh man it would never have sold. Does it sound as bad in Dutch as Quiffy does in English? Kuifje looks and sounds kinda badass to me as an English speaker but Quiffy sounds very camp.

apparently it's not banned. at least, they don't mention any ban on wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tintin_in_the_Congo#Racial_stereotypes_and_colonia lism

in dutch, the title was changed from "kuifje in congo" to "kuifje in afrika" in 1952.

05-08-2012, 07:08 PM
it's not on the back cover of any single one of my tintin books so i was surprised. It's probably not banned but i bet you nobody in their right mind wants to publish it at this point.
