1. Welcome to the new Styleforum!

    We are currently fine-tuning the forum for your browsing pleasure, so bear with any lingering dust as we work to make Styleforum even more awesome than it was. I'd like to keep you abreast of the improvements we've made over the past few days.
    @notification emails have been added, in response to user requests

    Attached images are now Full Size by default

    Users are now all allowed three (3) links in their signature files,

    SSL certification is now in place so you can all browse securely.

    The server has been reconfigured so that site speeds will improve.

    Notice: Right now the site is slow because we are fixing all the images from the past 4 months. Many of you noticed that these were missing, and we are fixing that problem now. Unfortunately, it is taking up a lot of resources and causing the site to be slow.

    Oh, and don’t forget to head over to the Styleforum Journal, because we’re giving away two pairs of Carmina shoes to celebrate our move!

    Please address any questions about using the new forum to support@styleforum.net

    Cheers,

    The Styleforum Team

    I was waiting for a animated movie adaptation of Tintin. Hopefully Spielberg and Jackson can do Herge justice!

    The animation looks creepy in a Polar Express kind of way. I am also disappointed to see they gave Tintin an English accent rather than a Belgian one.

    So far I'm not that impressed; Spielberg has been known to churn out huge stinkers from time to time.

    saw the trailer the other day when it was released... doesn't really show much but i have to say i'm eagerly anticipating it, having loved the comics growing up as a kid. although I didnt think it was that popular with American audiences? I grew up overseas so I'm not sure. I was all about Tintin and Asterix and Obelix, lol.

    I'm pumped simply because I have fond memories of reading Tintin. After watching the video, I'm scared it may fall into the whole uncanny-valley area of effect. There really wasn't enough scenes of facial expression to tell though.
