The Bible contains six admonishments to homosexuals and 362 admonishments to heterosexuals. That doesn't mean that God doesn't love heterosexuals. It's just that they need more supervision.

Short Review - 10,000 B.C.

The first few thoughts that will come to my mind every time if I were to organize a movie event are whether the film is generally a well-received film, valued for its artistic values or simply just an enjoyable one. Bothering on neither sides of these thoughts, was 10,000 B.C.

For XiaoYao and some of us who actually have some general idea and knowledge about the history of the world and of evolution, the film simply filled laughing gas into our stomachs as the film progressed... and I realized that our little giggles and mini-jokes actually disturbed some really intense and focused film-goers. (I think this film has so much potential to be made into a spoof instead!)

Not to slam the film on the face too hard, generally I feel that this is by far the worst film director Roland Emmerich had ever made in his career. But nonetheless, maybe we should applaud his courage in taking up the challenge of separating Fiction with Non-fiction methods of making this film into the mainstream "Action & Adventure" genre. Why I said this is because the film generally was not accurately anchored by the facts of history or of evolution-science but more likely of a very fictional based narrative mode. Telling of a "legend" and of a "Story" handed down by generations, almost seemed very inappropriate for its film title: 10,000 B.C.?

I guess I am rather confused with this film because Roland Emmerich made some very good science-fiction films (in my opinion) like Independence Day &The Day After Tomorrow etc. and now this? Hmmm... potentially-spoofy!
