Mostly about my amusement

See? Life does imitate art

I’m playing with the basement wireless AP when I saw this popup on Twitter.!/gothamist/status/123033078770835457

Which of course made me think about Support Your Local Sheriff.

Pa Danby: If that gun had gone off, it’d of blowed right up in my face.
Jason McCullough: Now it wouldn’t have done my finger a hell of a lot of good either, would it? What can I do for you, Mr. Danby?

Officer William Reddin blocked the hammer with his finger (good thing too!) and I am sure the real life situation was more intense than James Garner’s version, but still I got a giggle out of the headline.

10,000 BC movie is missing something

One Million Years BC poster from WikipediaI don’t know anything about this movie really, other than if I ever see it, it will be only when it hits cable. I’ve just looked over the trailer and the movie web site looks just fancy enough to not be too slick.

The Wikipedia page says the main character discovers a lost civilization. Can you call a civilization lost when the movie takes place in 10,000 BC?

It looks like it will be good escapism fun. I can’t wait for all the peopl who will insist “That did not happen! The dates are wrong!”. Independence Day was another Roland Emmerich flick and everyone liked that one. The trailer looks like they got the elements for a fun movie.

But quickly looking over the cast I can make one statement:

If you are going to make a movie called 10,000 B.C. then there ought to be a law saying that Raquel Welch MUST appear in at least a cameo.
