I've never seen a 3D movie so today I took myself off to see "Beowulf". I was skeptical but it turned out I was really impressed. A little quesy at times but the effects were pretty amazing. It didn't hurt that the star is naked a lot and that actress what's her name? Yeah, I know they were just cartoons, sort of but still they looked hot. I never read the book. I did read the screen writers took liberties, so a Beowulf purist (is there such a thing?) might quibble with the plot. I liked that it wasn't all explosive action. There was still plenty and plenty of gore. It's a fun ride

You and I seem to see some of the same shows on Broadway...and now a movie. Hmmm, yes, the 3-D version is a real spectacle, but there were times when I felt I was sitting way too close to the screen. But I love 3-D. It makes me feel like a kid again, wearing those dorky glasses and reaching out to touch the screen...

When are we going to have 3-D porno, with cum shooting right at your eyes?

Yes, there are "Beowulf purists," but I actually thought the movie was more intellectually interesting than the original work. Certainly, in the 9th century version, Grendel's mother does not look like Angelina Jolie, and Beowulf and Hrothgar do not have sex with her and father the demons they then have to deal with.

Well, I thought the whole thing was cheesy, the effects looked cheap and the story a mess--including the fact that half the movie is made up.

 

The whole first fight scene where Beowulf is naked and they come up with all the cutsey ways not to show his dick was childish...and much better done in The Simpsons movie.

I saw the regular flat version, and I liked it just fine. Yes, there is some computer magic there, but I had a sense that there was less of it than in some other pics I've seen of this type. The computer was mainly for the backgrounds and smoothing out some of the features of the actors. But I wonder if Ray Winstone is quite so buff as he appears here.

 

Anyway, it was realistic enough to get me hot! Although now that we've had full frontal on quite a few mainstream movies, I don't see why we couldn't see some dangle during his first fight with Beowulf.
