I rewatched Quest For Fire (1981) [1148-85] last night. It's about a trio of cavemen who go on an adventure to find fire for their tribe, and they meet a woman named Ika (played by Rae Dawn Chong) whose tribe knows how to make fire.

There was all sorts of cool stuff in this movie: a battle between men and apes, Lions wearing prosthetic fangs as Sabertooths, Elephants dressed in fur as Mammoths, a fight with a Bear, cannibals, etc. It's especially cool how you don't have to know what exactly the characters are saying to get what's going on. Also the music in the movie (performed by the London Symphony Orchestra) has a sort of Star Wars Original Trilogy sound to it. Ron Perlman plays one of the cavemen, LOL! It was his first movie too. Really good movie, though I think it's kinda slow at times.

I wish there were way more Ice Age adventure movies out there like Quest for Fire and The Clan of the Cave Bear (which I also have on LaserDisc) I saw Alpha (2018) I thought that one was alright. I did see Roland Emmerich's 10,000 BC (2008) once when I was a kid.
