Can it get any better?
I thought the movie was fantastic. I may be more than a bit partial to the dashing archaeologist theme, granted, but I loved it. Exactly the same feel as the oldies - obvious special effects, ridiculous humour, the requisite lecturing scene, betrayal, nasty insects... What more could you ask for?
And Indie is right - V. Gordon Childe is well worth a read, preferably on a visit to Scara Brae.
What makes it so damn good is that I picked up 10 movies for $20 on the street today.
