  1. Speaking of ruining childhood stuff… did you see they actually revealed Dr. Claw’s face a while back for an action figure? I mean, this was probably a LONG time ago, but it wasn’t too well known. I only found out recently. 🙁

    I would not say ruin in the case of the Smurfs (so long as they end up dead in the movie) just making sure they get their just deserts. I remember a sci-con in the 1980’s with an adventure called ‘The Assult on Smarf Mountain’. The DM make sure that there were no endanged species like Dragons, Orks, etc in the dungeon, just room after room of small blue creatures, LOTS of Small Blue Creatures.

    re: tintin movie
    awww they’re being regular spoil sports. yes it’s jumped right into the uncanny valley, but it’s moffat. and spielberg. and peter jackson. that’s quite a few heavy hitters lined up, i’m willing to give the presentation of the “Unicorn” story arc more than a fair chance.

  4. Have to agree that Unicorn looks to be Zemeckrap, as I’ve termed it.

    Story will likely be good – I’ve heard Spielberg is a big Tintin fan, and I know Steven Moffat wrote one of the earlier drafts (then the writer’s strike hit, and by the time the dust settled he was too busy with Doctor Who and Sherlock).

    But that CGI!

    …and come to think, wouldn’t using the lousy “YOU ACTUALLY SEE MORE THAN HIS ARM) Rupert Everett Dr. Claw make more sense for a strip like this? 😛

    There’s been a fuss in the British press already. Captain Haddock has a Scottish accent rather than the English one he’s supposed to have.

    Have fun at SDCC! I’m still so Jealous of everyone who’ll get to go! I know that a lot of actors and actresses go there to promote movies, and I hope that they will at least stop by and say hello to you.

  7. I just wanted to say that people who don’t appreciate Keanu Reeves should have their nerd licenses revoked. Especially in cyberpunk, minding his brilliant acting in Mnemonic.
