Violence is a part of every little boy's fantasies, i know because i was a little boy too. No matter how you want to put it, whether its their nature or that society puts them up to it, kids love violence. You ask any kid nowadays to tell you there favorite movie is and the number one answer will be 300. Now that certainly doesn't mean 300 and other violent movies are kids movies but when a violent fantasy lacks sufficient atmosphere then it loses its fantasy vibe and becomes an ordinary violent CGI film that becomes the equivalent of porn to little kids. While there are always kids in fantasy films, in a good fantasy film, you can always find your fair share of adults (ones that arent stuck with the burden of chaperoning). my guess is that most people wont be going to this for fantasy but merely for a cgi action flick.

I see what you're saying Atlas. I agree with some of what you said, but what I'm saying is I don't think the movie is trying to target JUST LITTLE KIDS in my opinion.

I think some of you are misunderstanding me here. I'm not trying to rave about this yet. I just find the trailer interesting so far.

Some of you need to leave your brain at the door when you watch a Roland Emmerich fan. Like him or not, INDEPENDENCE DAY has a huge fan following and THE DAY AFTER TOMMARO is popular from what I see. Like I said, I don't watch his films to think and learn something. They're good pop corn fun.

INDEPENDENCE DAY 
THE DAY AFTER TOMMARO




1. Liked it when I was seven. Not sure I'd care now.

2. Fell asleep in the theatre. Boring.

Actually, the Raquel Welch film ONE MILLION YEARS B.C. isn't the "original". There was a 1940 version entitled ONE MILLION B.C. starring Victor Mature and Lon Chaney Jr. Heard a bit about this new one but that is silly to have them speak English. The Hammer film (with Welch and John Richardson who did some SW's) has some great stop motion effects from Harryhausen. They spoke in grunts and groans in this one too. I haven't seen the UK version but it runs around 7 minutes longer.

Hammer followed that up with WHEN DINOSAURS RULED THE EARTH (1970) which was nominated for an Oscar for effects this time by Jim Danforth. This movie, in its original British version was definitely not for children as there was abundant nudity and a sex scene involving gorgeous Victoria Vetri. Hammer's third and final prehistoric flick was CREATURES THE WORLD FORGOT (1971). No dinosaurs this time but lots of nudity and Julie Ege.

Anybody remember the comedy CAVEMAN (1981) starring Ringo Starr, Dennis Quaid, Shelley Long and John Matuszac? They spoke cave speak save for the Chinese guy played by Evan Kim. Grin

This actually doesn't look too bad if you can overlook the English speech. Supposedly, the whole film isn't in English. Who knows, maybe Doug McClure's Bowen Tyler character from LAND THAT TIME FORGOT (1975) and PEOPLE THAT TIME FORGOT (1977) ran into these guys at some point and taught them English like he did the Gallu and Naga's Cheesy

It seems they did stick with authenticity a bit and left out any dinosaurs. Boo for that. Undecided
