I went to see "10,000 B.C." today.

I went to see "10,000 B.C." today, and trust me when I say that it was complete "brain candy" film-wise.

In this film an aboriginal tribe member loses the love of his life (who just so happens to be white -she joined the tribe as a child) when she is kidnapped by some big bad Egyptians and forced to work for them, building pyramids as a slave.

The tribe member sets off in hot pursuit, building alliances with whites and blacks along the way and overcomes the big bad "middle-eastern" oppressor and frees his woman.

It's not terribly deep (and the overtones that might resonate with today are a bit iffy) but it's an enjoyable enough way to spend a couple of hours if you don't want to think to hard.
