|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 do remember that one. I vaguely recall being bored out of my skull (no offense, of course). I think, though, that I was bored because I wasn't into reading movies at the time. I imagine it would be different now.

I can understand being kind of bored. Though suspenseful, Pathfinder isn't action-packed. I rather like that though. It quietly allows aspects of Sami traditional culture come through, which is what I really like about the film. Plus it has shamans! And reindeer! And is the first (only?) film in the Sami language.
But then I am admittedly biased in favor of movies containing shamans and reindeer ;-)
Honestly, if I can get this excited about Vikings vs. Injuns, I can fully understand someone getting excited about Shamans and Reindeer :)

Have you seen Kukushka (English title The Cuckoo)?? It was made in 2002. The three characters are Finnish, Russian, and Saami and they speak those languages, and there's a shamanic journey and a love triangle and everything. I loved it. If you haven't seen it, maybe we should rent it when you come down!
