    I still think that looks awesome. They are really going to need to push it to get people to go see it. People hear 'based on an old French comic' it ain't exactly gonna fill seats.

    Couldn't agree more. I imagine they're going to let critics review the **** out of it right before opening and hope that all the (presumably) positive reviews will move it along.

    that is interesting. we went to the comics museum in brussels (le musée de la bande dessinée--not sure if that's the same one you are talking about) and they had tintin stuff but it was kind of rushed so i missed that fact. we spent most of our time in belgium drinking... lol.

    not as much as you'd think. i HATE mayonnaise, but if you have fries with it, it's delicious. i still think fries with american mayo is hard to swallow, though. it's best if it's the homemade european version where the mayo is actually yellowish and rich tasting from the yolks and not the white congealed stuff you get in a kraft or best foods jar.
    i actually made steak frites last night and we ate our fries with garlic aioli (mayo!) and beer.
    like big joe, i didn't pick this habit up until my visit in france, belgium, luxembourg and holland. my husband's from that general area though so he's been eating it all his life and until the trip i took, i'd turn my nose up at it, too.

    Hmm... I MIGHT be willing to give it a try, but... man, even just the word mayonnaise kind of makes me queasy, so it would be tough.

    It's not like miracle whip mayo. It's completely different and tasty.
    And I think it was just a Tin Tin museum, I don't remember seeing any other comics there, hard to remember. I too was drinking quite heavily. Them Belgians know how to make some fine beer.

    Mr. box knows.

    I get my frite sauce at the Holland America Market in Artesia. Nom!


    As for TinTin, I've been excited about this since the first poster comp started routing through my work's system. Though I think my excitement may have quite a bit to do with it being Euro and having a Dutch dad who was a huge fan of TinTin. My dad's comment about the trailers was "Wow, that's definitely not the TinTin I remember, but I want to see it anyway" and my dad does NOT go to the movies. If you know TinTin, this will resonate a bit more with you than if you have no clue what it is. I honestly think it was just Spielberg and Jackson being fans and saying "**** it, let's do this" because nobody on this side of the pond seems to know what it is.
