|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
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...
