Raise your hand if you’ve seen one of the trailers/commercials for that piece of crap movie “Beowulf”? If any of you have watched five seconds of television lately, then I’m sure you have since it’s on every other second. My real question is does ANYONE really want to see this?
When I first heard that Beowulf was being made into a movie, I was excited. I mean, when you take one of the oldest pieces of literature and modernize it, that’s a feat. Unfortunately, someone decided that Robert Zemeckis should be the one to bring this to life.
And by “bring to life,” I mean, “film it once and then make everyone into a digital character.” In actuality, he’s making two movies. And really, the second version will inevitably be worse visually than the first one. Seriously, it looks like a video game... and not a very good one at that. I guess we need more amazing effects since “The Polar Express” is a few years removed. Or maybe Zemeckis just thought he should bank off of “300’s” success.
Either way, I’m very un-impressed with this movie – can’t we have more Back to the Future-type stuff!?! Who wants to see this, and why?
