Cheesiness of the movie aside, the Clan of The Cave Bear has one HELL of a poster... I mean dayum that thing is eye catching.

Aye, can't say much about the movie, but that poster is a thing of beauty.

On the whole this sounds like quite a few of those movies should feature prominently on anyone's go-to list of silly cheese.

I feel the need to point that in the Clan of the Cave Bear books, Ayla can't tame animals "Snow White style". She captures them young and raises them tame.

Unless of course the Snow White thing came up in the later books. I stopped reading at #5.

Honestly, I mostly just remember them because of all the caveman cunnilingus. (Shut up, I was 13.)

(Also, fuck you spellcheck. "Cunnilingus" is totally a word you damn prude.)

Damn straight. It's an awesome image.

As I recall, the movie won an award for makeup. I can see why.

Now I want to watch it just for that.

While not a straight caveman movie I think one that is very much worth mentioning is Yor: Hunter From the Future!

So wait... that Iron Maiden song was a reference to either a movie or (more likely) a book from 1911? Mind = blown.

All their songs are references to classic movies :p, for the most part atleast :D.

You know something? Otzi the iceman should get a movie.
(does anyone know how to encode an umlaut?)

They should make THAT a captcha

I knew most of them were (there's a song on that album about Dune, and it is awesome), but I didn't know there was a movie that went with this one.

Heck, if you add mythology and hookers (gotta love Charlotte the Harlot), you've got pretty much the entire list.

Also, I just realized we're talking about Iron Maiden in a thread titled "Rock On." I thought the quote notification was a PM at first XD

Edit: Forgot to list History. A lot of their songs are based on history, too. That's what I always figured Quest for Fire fell under.

Oh yeah, I think they have a song about that old British TV show, "The Prisoner", and an album entitled "Brave New World".

This article reminded me of a claymation show i used to watch when i was a kid. So i went on youtube to find out if some episodes were uploaded there and indeed they were. Here is the 1 episode, i think you will enjoy it :) .

moviebob:
One Million Years B.C. (1966)

[...]

The film, overall, is pretty ridiculous. Dinosaurs appear centuries out of place for action scenes, and all of the dialogue is delivered in a made-up cave language [...]

Also: Bow and arrow actually date back to far before the iron or even the bronce age. They aren't all that (or even not at all? I'm not to firm at how far back the oldest stone or bone arrowheads date) anachronistic for the stone ages.

Pretty interessting collection of movies nontheless. I don't think I have seen any of those. I don't watch all that many movies though.

That's for sure.

How not safe for work are these trailers? Also, a prehistoric arms race sounds brilliant. I may have to track that movie down.

The only thing that I got out of this was that Bob knows what Pretty Little Liars is. Isn't it great, Bob?

Seeing the trailers, I never really thought about the girl's design until just now and, at the risk of sounding like a self-congratulatory jerk, I'm rather happy that the novelty of a stereotypically "un-feminine" design never crossed my mind, like it was something that I didn't find "strange" or "different." I still think she's cute though - maybe it was the dopey "invention of shoes" gag. Also, she's voiced by Emma Stone, and considering the whole "body type" thing, her deeper, husky voice seems pretty well matched to me.

On the subject of One Million Years BC:

all of the dialogue is delivered in a made-up cave language (with no subtitles)

It's been a while since I saw it, but that's the thing I remember liking the most about that film. Apart from the obvious Raquel Welch in a fur bikini. I mean, hell yeah it was ridiculous overall, but if you can get a story across with nothing even close to a language that I understand, that's pretty good as far as I'm concerned. (There's probably better examples, but I'm not really a big movie buff so... *shrug*.)

Ah Bob no mention of Larry Clark's Teenage Caveman? Thought it would tie in well with your spring breakers review.

Lets not forget 1981's truly awful Ringo Star and Barbara Back vehicle "Caveman"

Needs more "Yor: The Hunter From The Future". Easily the bestworst cheesy caveman movie. The protagonist even gets his own cheesy prog-rock theme song!

You know, I really would have rather seen a Croods review rather than Spring Breakers. The descrption of it here made it seem a lot more interesting than the wannabe intellectual crap of Spring Breakers.

Noticable absence of Cro. It's not a movie but it's the only worthwhile caveman story worth reminiscing about for me.

I remember being entertained by 10,000 BC, although I struggle to remember much about it now.

No joke, my aunt thought Quest for Fire was a documentary.

She was never the brightest bulb.

Clan of the Cave Bear sounds... like it doesn't interest me, but MAN that poster infatuates me! That's my favourite part of going to the movies, seeing all the posters for upcoming movies. When I was younger, and I didn't know how to hear rumours, that was often how I'd first find out about future films. I'd see a poster with just a lovely rendered Superman symbol on it reading "COMING SOON" and be like "Oh shiiiiiit! :D"
But of course I'd also see a poster with some crappy goku cosplayer on it ironically reading "Dragon Ball Evolution" and think "oh shiiiiiit... >:("
