    Ah yes, Apocalypto with unfeasably sized prehistoric animals.

    The Patriot? Even Stargate is toned down compared to stuff like ID4, Godzilla and The Day After Tomorrow.

    No, it's a very good film with a superb "nerve" throughout!

    I quite liked it as well... though I was more than a bit reminded of the old C64 "Aztec Challenge" arcade game...

    Ok, I´ll give you that. The Patriot at least tries to tell a story; a boring one, IMO, but a story after all. But for me it proved that what Emmerich does well is, quoting Tim, to marvel us at mega-scale death and destruction.

    Erik mentioned The Patriot (which I hated) as an exception. I've enjoyed most of his other films, ludicrous though they are. I guess one might compare him with Michael Bay in terms of producing ludicrous films designed solely for entertainment; and I think he would fare very well in that comparison. I haven't seen 10000BC though. Anyone?

    Michael Bay is on a superior league. You can hate his movies, but he has a personal style that many have tried to imitate failing miserably.

    Hmm. I'd have said that Emmerich paved the way for most of the explosion-dominated effects films which followed (including Bay's) and Bay's style is essentially Emmerich's, but with more cuts.

    Indeed. Steer clear of that.

    I've yet to see one single GOOD film made about the early days of human civilization (meaning 10.000 BC and earlier).

    Well, you see a Bay film and you KNOW it´s Bay (the way he moves the camera, the editing, those travellings, etc.). Emmerich is a good artisan, no doubt about it, but his films and Stephen Sommers´ones (to name just one) look the same to me.

    Though it too has it's minus points I would recommend Jean-Jaques Annaud's film Quest For Fire, it at least is a serious attempy and includes an invented language by Anthony ( A Clockwork Orange ) Bergess and body language by Desmond ( Thje Naked Ape ) Morris, a great score by Philippe Sarde too.

    Interesting, thanks, I haven't seen that.

    I had high hopes for a Jean Auel filmization. The 80's CLAN OF THE CAVE BEAR with Darryl Hannah was NOT impressive, despite a charming Silvestri score.

    I'm afraid we'll have to beg to differ on the 'charming Silvestri score' wink

    If Clan of The Cavebear was made now I'm sure it would be a lot better though historically "cavemen" have never been big box office. The problem with getting Neanderthals right is a big one, far more squat and far more powerfully built than we are and face make-up on actors just never looks correct to me when concerning these ancient species of mankind. In the film they just looked like dwarves with big foreheads.

    Also the fear of having humans, but not much dialogue. Personally, I would have found it VERY interesting. A film driven almost exclusively by movements, gestures, "basic" body language, perhaps with some vocal sounds as communication (with subtitles, if necessary).

    • CommentAuthorTimmer
    • CommentTimeOct 30th 2009
    In that case I yet again recommend QUEST FOR FIRE, no voice over or subtitles, all done with vocalisation and body language, the film has a real charm IMO with some good intentionally funny moments in amongst some stark brutality.

    Haven't seen it but i LOVE the score! I am planning to watch it though...i like Gibson's work as a director so far.
