    Terry Bradshaw's best flick!
  2. The book is definitely a much better use of the concept. I love how it's written pretty authentically in the style of an ancient travelogue like Ibn Fadlan actually created, too. Apparently, everything up to the part where he leaves with the vikings after witnessing the funeral is a pretty accurate retelling of Ibn Fadlan's actual writings.

    And the movie doesn't touch on what I thought is the most interesting premise of the book - encounters between sapiens and neatherthal with in recorded times: How might the two species coexist on the outskirts of the known world and how might the stories of the encounters be related through history/myth?

    He and Mel Tillis were good together in "Cannonball Run."

    My wife loves Hooper, and she is the least likely fan of Burt Reynolds movies.

    One more for the Burt Reynold cannon - Heat.

    A buddy of mine and I love this movie and still quote Nick Escalante, master of edged weapons 20 years later.

    Sorry about that. Stupid quote function. I meant Butterfly Effect.

    LOVE some Smokey and The Bandit. Named my cats Smokey and The Bandit, as evidenced by my avatar. He's the only animal that could ever pull off the first name The, and he does it well.
    Awesome movie!

    Speaking of Crichton, I was sorely disappointed when I watched Timeline last night. It's like they took his book and ran it through the stoopid machine a couple of times.

    Yes! Sho-nuff, the Shogun of Harlem!
    Don't get me wrong, it's a bad, bad movie, but that doesn't mean I don't like it.
