    I was at the movies today and saw a preview for the movie 10,000 B.C. Thought it looked really cool.

    10,000 looks sick. Hopefully it won't be too chessy.

    Fucking heathens. The good book clearly tells us that God created all existence about 6600 years ago. I hope you all enjoy eternity in Hell, you fucking heretical savages.

    I preferred 10001, the prequel. I thought it had more balance.

    Would that be 10001: A Cave Odyssey?

    The trailer starts out:

    "From the same assholes who brought you Independence Day and The Day After Tomorrow"

    How good could it possibly be?

    Some of the visuals looked okay but there's about 100:1 odds it's going to suck.

    I think Beowulf might be more interesting, but I haven't seen the trailer and the site seems to be down at the moment.

    Too chessy? Like, that movie about Bobby Fischer? That was pretty chessy.

    I'd like Beowulf to be great, but I'm not holding out hope with Zemeckis directing. Lately he's got this habit of sacrificing storytelling for visual tricks. I also got a little less excited when some of his animators admitted that he was trying to get them to keep the story a little more family friendly. At least Tom Hanks isn't in it.

    I downloaded the trailer a while back and loved it, but I was concerned for the cheese factor as well. As for Beowulf, even a CGI Angelina Jolie grosses me out, so I doubt I will watch this one. The movie I am most excited for is "Iron Man" with Robert Downey Jr. It is supposed to be a little cheesey, but that is cool. I loved the comic whe I was young. The preview is frigging awesome. Downey is one of the best in the biz.

    Soldier: "Sir, would it be cool to take my picture with you?"

    Tony Stark (Downey): (pauses) "Yes... that would be very cool. I don't want to see this on your MySpace page."

    The soldier throws a peace sign, and Stark says, "Please, no gang signs... I am just kidding, put it up there."

    So, who saw it? Did you like it? It was different then I thought it would be. Kinda hinted and combined, Inca, African tribes, Eyptian building pyramids, prehistoric animals, sacrafice, Aliens, so forth. The lead guy was pretty hot. Actually quite a few of them were hot. My Sis said the lead girl reminded her of Lindsay Lohan. Well it was entertaining. Can't say it was a totally great. But I'm a big fan of movies with tribal men. I got a weakness for that. So, I liked it.

    I just went and saw 10,000 BC today. By no means was it a great movie. Actually...Stephen Strait--the main actor--was probably the best part. He is supposedly like a month younger then I am and DAMN! I wish I looked like that!

    Hey if you went in thinking it was million dollar baby or monsters ball you didnt think about what it was or looked like. Its an action movie about monsters and ancient times with primitive tools and raiders. If you take Pathfinder, rewrite it a couple more times take it back another couple millennium add mammoth, giant birds, and saber tooth tigers. Twist in a little egyptian history and add some amazing graphics you got this film. It delivers all it promises to be in the trailer. I'd gladly say I enjoyed it, don't look to deeply into its inaccuracies it still holds up better than transformers. If you thought this was actually bad you need to go out and rent; dare devil, Elekra, Torque, Ghostrider, Batman and Robin and say I don't know A sound of Thunder. Those movies will re-align your movie views. This movie was fun and simple and was well executed. It's not best screen writing work but is a release from the everyday.

    It's pretty damn inaccurate. Homotherium, the last of the Eurasian saber toothed cats died out in Europe about 900,000 years ago (though lived on in the New World until about 10,000 years ago) and terror birds (yes giant carnivorous, predatory birds were very real) were New World creatures, the last of which, Titanis walleri (a 9 ft. tall, 330 lb killing machine), died out 1.8 million years ago. This extinction date is new. It had been recently thought Titanis died out merely 10,000-9,000 years ago, in which case, humans may well have encountered them in their last stronghold of the North American gulf coast.

    It may be very remotely possible that a species of terror bird did survive into and beyond paleolithic times as North American aboriginals have stories of giant birds, the Thunderbirds, and, even today, anecdotal reports of giant flying birds are reported from time to time from Pennsylvania to Arizona.

    Ancient peoples of 10,000 years ago were just coming out of the last ice age and beginning agriculture. 10,000 BC depicts an established civilization building monumental megalithic structures and it appears that didn't happen for another 3,500 years at the earliest. Monumental megalithic building did not begin in the New World until about 2600 BC with the Caral civilization in what is now Peru. Yes there may have been some urban/agricultural civilization in the New World which had a meteoric rise and engaged in building monumental megalithic structures, but if there is was, nobody has found it yet. The odd ziggurat-like structure shown in the film was developed in Mesopotamia around 6,000 BC but did not reach monumental sizes until about 3,000 BC.

    In other words, enjoy the travails of Og, Oona, and Ookla and don't worry about this history.

    I thought of Pathfinder as well when watching it. It was like Pathfinder and Apocalypto mixed together.
