Pick the Rats

The title is my advice if you are ever held by terrorists, who give you a choice between spending the last two hours of your life watching 10,000 years BC or being eaten alive by rats.

  1. Yeah, that movie looks pretty stupid. And from the photo, it appears that in 10,000 BC, it was all tanned (but still caucasian) people with stinky dreadlocks. Just like my neighborhood now.

    Anyway, if you want to see a representation of ancient humanity that is probably much more accurate, check out the natives in the latest ‘King Kong’ remake. The movie is all special effects and art direction, so don’t expect a decent script, acting, continuity or believability (even for a fantasy). But the natives look a lot less like Burning Man Wannabe-Tribal Hippies and more like…natives.

    But do the people in your neighborhood have such perfectly sculpted eyebrows, Bri?

  3. No, Carol, that’s the neighborhood just southeast of mine. So technically, my neighbors look a bit more like cavepeople than the folks in the photo.

  4. Is this the guy who made Independence Day? They’ve been plugging an interview with him on CNN for the last month and the clip of him choreographing how an actor should flee from a dinosaur one hundred times his size was quite amusing.

    For films set in prehistory, may I recommend Quest for Fire (the prehistoric people look very Israeli) and the Ringo Starr thing Caveman (kind of silly, but funny), while in literature, William Golding’s The Inheritors is a really brilliant evocation of the last days of a tribe (and I think the only book that makes me cry fwiw)

  5. Thanks for the warning. There was also a series in the early 70’s called Primal Man. A plane wreck claimed the lives of cast and crew in 1974…

  6. Ya… but thanks anyway.
