10:49 am - Vikings vs. Indians!
Dude! Pathfinder (the movie about Vikings fighting Indians) has made it to the dollar theatre! I never saw it make it to the first run!

The synopsis is: "A Viking boy is left behind after his clan battles a Native American tribe. Raised within the tribe, he ultimately becomes their savior in a fight against the Norsemen."

Wow. I'm so there!

Oh, and on an unrelated note: zylch, remember those stockings I owe you? I think I've found a perfect match.

I'm skeptical of the movie for a few reasons. It seems from the advertisements that they're going to portray the Norsemen as bloodthirsty killers without a purpose and the indigenous people as completely peaceful. It's a nice reflection of the plight of the modern Native American, but not close to historically accurate. Also, 300 kind of sucked, and I think it's the same person doing it.

I wonder if they'll even give a name for the natives...

Dude, you don't go to movies like *this* for intelligent commentary. This is Vikings versus Injuns! Indo-European Pale Patriarchal Penis People verses indigenous Matriarchal Peace-Loving Hippy Wannabes!

This has all the makings of the best movie ever!

Except, perhaps, for the 1978 movie The Norsemen, which was the pinnacle of the Viking vs. Indian motif. It starred Lee Majors and many Vikings (including the token black viking) with Texas accents! A rare gem indeed!

But then, I like B movies.

I expect to have fun watching it. I might even buy Junior Mints and popcorn (concessions are rare with me) to fully appreciate the gluttonous moviegoing experience that B movies entail. :)

Yeah, I think I saw that movie when it was called "Dances With Wolves".

And its antithesis when it what called "The 13th Warrior".

The thing is, people take "based on a historical event" as meaning "historically accurate". Like the Bible...
