It takes a special kind of talent to combine massive, over-the-top action scenes with historical accuracy of The Flintstones. Unsurprisingly, it's the same kind of talent that combined Ancient Egypt with portals and lasers, unpatriotic aliens with computer viruses, and giant lizards with stupidity.
That's right, Roland Emmerich, director of Stargate, Independence Day, and Godzilla, has a new one on the horizon, and it looks right up there with all his best. Called 10,000 B.C., it could have more accurately been named Anything That Seemed Sort of Cool in a Fairly Large Window of the Past, Across an Impossibly Diverse Geography. Riding wooly mammoths in an empire at-par with the Aztecs? Yeah, I think I remember that segment in VH1's I Love the 10,000 B.C.s. Classic scene of the time.
