It looks like an interesting movie. I would like some FReeper feedback.
I am surprised that PC Hollywood is using B.C. instead of the now politically correct B.C.E. (Before Common Era)
“I am surprised that PC Hollywood is using B.C. instead of the now politically correct B.C.E. (Before Common Era)”
I’m sure this will be changed prior to release.
Looks pretty good though. I wonder which hollywood relic was around back then to document the life and times of our ancestors?
Looks awful, like a bad cross between “Stargate” and “1,000,000 B.C.” Giant golden cities coexisting with domesticated mammoths 12,000 years ago? Did anyone associated with this movie take even Anthro 101? Give me a break.
Amazing how "The more things change, the more they remain the same".
I thought B.C.E. was Before Christian Era. ;)
I have to set aside my schedule to make damn sure I miss that.
Yeh. It should have read A.D.E. (After Demonrats Evolved)
"Ms. Streisand, I cleaned the toilet, is there anything else?"
I break stick.
I throw rock
I pick lice from head.

I never existed. Forget the above.
That preview didn’t make the movie interesting to me at all, in fact I rather had low hopes when I saw that the director also did Day AFter Tommorow.
Yeah, I feel the same.
This is a fantasy film. Not a serious attempt at showing us what that lost world was truly like.
Refined metal knives before the Bronze Age? Domesticated war mammoths? Pyramids and either cut stone or brick buildings? Sorry, the director's other move "Independence Day" appears to have been more historically accurate.
This is crazy. They didn’t have cameras 10,000 years ago. ;-)
Hey, I wonder if the movie opens up with the Ice Age coming to an abrupt end - like in 3 HOURS!!
Yeah; why do you think it’s not possible? Because the mainstream hierarchy of archeology says so? The date for the beginning of civilization keeps getting pushed back further and further into prehistory. The Sphinx is officially dated to about 3500 BC, but geologists can clearly show that it must have been built no later than 9000 BC, due to the type and extent of erosion on the main structure and repairs made at known dates. The ancients knew of far older civilizations than themselves, most of the records of such was maintained in the library of Alexandria. The legend of the Phoenix is an allegorical story of Man’s civilization.
.....not to mention the over cooked digital effects. I give the preview 2 thumbs down :)
The scene where they actually make fire is well worth seeing — and the movie made Rae Dawn Chong America’s sweetheart.
No, but they did see how much money Dinotopia made...
It’s on my MUST miss list now...
I'm not sure "sweetheart" captures it exactly.
Back when Regis still did Millionare, in its original run, there was one question that used BCE. The contestant asked, "Is there any way that I can find out what BCE means?" Regis explained what it was and said that it was like "Before Christ". The contestant said, "oh" and then answered the question correctly and they moved on.
A couple weeks later, a question popped up with "B.C." in it. The E didn't appear again. (can't speak for the daytime show.)
Why? Who would they put in the costume? Probably someone vapid who couldn’t act to save their life.
No way I’ll watch anything that is nothing but a series of 100 millisecond flashes.
B.C. means Before Christ. BCE means Before the Common Era. It is the PC way of saying it. BCE is used by academia more and more to avoid any reference to Jesus. The irony is that the beginning of the “Common Era” is tied to the birth of Christ. So whatever you call it, it refers to the birth of Christ.
The movie looks a lot like the Flintstones.
BUT - we have a small problem...
In the trailer it refers to ‘BC and ‘AD’.
Surely the ACLU will force them to change it to ‘BCE’ and ‘ACE’ (if that is what they call AD now), yes???
WOW. Now THAT looks Visceral!!!
I might just have to go see that after a day of listening to screaming kids and what not... oh wait, thats every day....
When’s it open?
There is NO remaking that!
I saw a preview for this before Harry Potter today, looked like Quest for Fire with more action and less plot. Also saw a preview for a movie that looked like Hair only with more drug references and worse music.
They’ll keep the BC because BCE just hasn’t taken off, in spite of scientists’ best effort, and the fact that it actually makes more sense especially if you’re outside the Mediterranean/ European area, people still like BC and AD.
I’m waiting for the July 31 ‘studio’ release of 300. :)
Metal and domesticated mammoths aside, if Ringo isn’t in it, it isn’t authentic.
They laughed when I noticed the regular appearance of ‘mammoth’ stories posted on FR this year.
They laughed when I said there had to be some reason for the plethora of “mammoth’ tales.
They ridiculed me with ‘tin foil hat’ comments when cautioned about the possible cloning of mammoths in some articles. After all, mammoths are only wooly elephants without sharp teeth a la the dinosaur clones in Jurassic Park.
Now we have a movie about hunting mammoths and a clip on FR.
Will they laugh and ridicule me when I predict Mammoths will be roaming the American heartland again in the near future as part of a “Mammoth Hunting Preserve” a la Jurassic Park.
There must be gigantic (dare I say mammoth) financial interests at work here.
Call me Nostradamus II, but...
I missed the domesticated mammoth and rider on the first go-around.
On second thought, this may be a mammoth plot by Al Gore and the Greens to convert us from using automobiles into mammoth riding. Hasn’t he invested in a bio-fuels corportation? I can just see the commercials.
Save the PLANET! [clip of Al Gore]”Use a Mammoth for your transportation needs. Runs entirely on biofuels without having to use energy to convert them. My son got one up to 10 miles an hour the other day and that’s all the speed he needs.”
I think Ted Turner (The largest private land-owner in America) owns all this land now. So....maybe.
You sound like a creationist, but the evidence of these primates doesn`t disprove creation. Yes they existed, they found the remains, but it doesn`t mean they were human no more than gorillas are human, they literally are just an extinct species of primate. It`s like chimpanzees going extinct and someone finding the fossilized remains.
There was a chimpanzee I read about last year who acquired the mutation of being able to walk on it`s hind legs, I even saw the video and it really freaked me out. You could consider the species of Australopithecus just like that, a bunch of chimps with that ability or mutation. It doesn`t mean they were human, just freaky chimps. Here, I found him on Youtube:
I tend to believe in creation myself because like someone pointed out, it`s like having a bunch of birds (which use tools like chimps) and all of a sudden they invent calculus. Well how the hell did that happen? It`s too extreme a change, something else was involved.
