    I’m happy, a commentary on one of my favorite reviews! :awesome:

    I can’t believe you were able to do this review when it wasn’t even subtitled in english! Having to run a spanish file through a translator…that dialogue must’ve made so much sense.

    You guys did a great job improv-ing based on only seeing the movie once or twice, too. I wouldn’t have been that coherent.

    Wait, don’t you have to learn french at school in your province? Or is it just because of their accent and the speed they talk?

      At least here in Ontario, French education kind of sucks. It’s mandatory from grades 4-9, but during that period all we were ever taught was how to conjugate verbs in the various tenses and some really simple sentences.

      Mind you, in grade 6 we got a special lesson on all the curse words in French. Not sure if that counts for anything though…

        Yeah that’s basically how it was for me. I took it in grade 10 still but stopped after that because I barely got through it. French was pretty much ruined for me in grade 9 when I had a teacher that completely lost control of our class and we really learned nothing that year. She even let the class to convince her to have a cross word on an exam…

          Same thing happened with my second year German class in 12th grade. We barely needed to speak any German and our teacher mainly told stories about her travels in Europe. They were pretty entertaining, and educational if you want to learn how to drink beer out of a glass boot without spilling it all over yourself, but still. Now all I remember are a few Christmas carols and a song about learning how to say “how are you” to a fish, and those I learned first year.

    Love commentaries, it’s like getting double the value from a review!

    I had a very similar experience with French, except that when I turned 13 we moved to New Brunswick, which is a “bilingual province”, so I went from barely knowing/caring about French to being thrust into a class far more advanced for me. I flubbed, cheated and scammed my way through grade 9 and 10 French and then left it in the dust. I still understand a fair amount of it because I hear it everyday but I can’t speak it or write to save my life from a Neanderthal or their oddly sympathetic and then oddly hateful human allies.

    This movie actually could have been kind of interesting, if they had sat down and thought about it for more than 5 seconds. What really gets me is that one of the theories as to why Neanderthals disappeared is that they were bred into a much denser human population, so the whole reason the Neanderthals have for existing in this movie, to procreate, won’t even work. What I am saying, this movie doesn’t deserve any kind of logical thinking, great commentary all the same from both of you guys 🙂
