which will be better?
will 10,000 BC be as much a box office success as 300?
more importantly will people like it and will you go see it?

Are you fucking joking? 10,000 BC looks like the most colossal waste of film ever.

EDIT: As of right now, 10000 BC's rating at RottenTomatoes is 14%, which is almost as bad as Ultraviolet. Which was epically bad.

i've been curious about "10,000 B.C." just because i like to see those types of movies in theaters... but really, where did you come up w/ the comparison to "300"? (which i also saw in theaters, but not since...)

as for being a good movie to see on the big screen but completely forgettable otherwise (i.e. "beowulf" in 3D iMax), i'm expecting these 2 will rank the same.

P.S. the whole poll sucks (and that's NOT what she said) because a) "300" was in no way a special-effects breakthrough, and 2) you should wait until a movie gets released before you ask people's opinion.

14%?

Even Cloverfield got a better rating.
And that movie blew by all means.

Let's see... A visually amazing movie based on a great graphic novel based on actual history or..... A movie set in a magical place 10,000 years ago where everyone spoke english and had perfect teeth.

DECISIONS!

That, amigo, is not the real question. The REAL question is this: Why do people watch terrible movies in such large numbers? By this I am saying that 10,000 BC is already a financial success. If a movie makes a significant profit, you can be guaranteed that there will be follow-up... sequels, imitations, et cetera. It's just good business to make movies that make money.

The real question is why do people pay good money to see movies they know will suck? I mean, nobody had any illusions about 10,000 BC being good, and they went and paid $10 to see it anyway.

I could be my usual self and ascribe it to a more charitable impulse- say, that people go to bad movies as escapism, or because they see some value in them that I'm blind to- but in this instance I'm going to pull a Randy and declare that it's because when it comes to movies, people are stupid, stupid fucks. They're suckers for marketing, and they'll watch anything with special effects and "O Fortuna" or the theme from Requiem For A Dream in the trailer.

God, I fucking hate people when they're stupid. It's a pity there's nobody around for me to just lay savagely into right now.

i'm not even going to bother with 10,000 BC.
as far as i've seen, it doesn't even compare with 300.
not even a little.

ok, so luckily I saw 10,000bc for free, because otherwise there is no chance I would have seen it.......but now I feel guilty, and it's possible I did irreparable harm to my mind...not even all the weed we smoked prior helped make it worthwhile

300 blows also...but it was significantly better (less terrible?) than 10,000 BC

people generally have bad taste, or more accurately no specific tastes, and juste wait for mass marketing campaigns in the media to form their tastes for them

10,000 B.C. was fucking lame... as much as i enjoyed the special effects, what was with the $0.10 wigs?? oh, and the weak acting and script...

if you want to see a good version of this movie, go watch Apocalypto...
