If you know how Hollywood, you best remember that they will usually never aim to be as accurate as the book. Hollywood are your business people, they want to sell out as much as possible so they change it drastically for the most part. So as long as you understand that, the movie should be a nice thriller in my opinion.


I'm not sure what you guys mean by "the book." Sorry to be an intellectual bastard, but originally this was an epic poem that only existed in oral form. At some point it was transcribed onto paper, then several different people at different times translated it into many different languages. Some were very literal, some weren't. Several adaptations of the poem into other forms like novels have probably been made....

So which book are we talking about the movie deviating from? If the book that it deviates from is a novel, well the novel almost certainly deviates from the poem, etc.

I read some sort of archaic english translation of the original poem when I was a kid. I didn't understand half of it and I basically don't remember any of it

It was pretty good, but not as good as everyone says it is. Plus its not 100% true to the story.

I saw the Beowulf today and it was actually pretty good...Kinda like a B/B+ movie...Wouldn't say it is outstanding or that it would win any Oscars or anything, but it is a movie worth seeing and I can understand how it topped the box offices in its first weekend (nothing else good is out)...

Well Angelina Jolie is a skank-ass biotch but the theater across the street from me has it in IMAX 3D so we're going to go see it.

I understand the whole "this is Beowulf in my point of view," but my lord, did it ever occur to you that Grendel was a freaking werewolf? If you didn't, you obviously weren't the right person to screenplay and direct.

From what I saw and heard, I couldn't stand the voice acting whatsoever. I imagined Beowulf yelling his name for a good three seconds, but you showed him barely passing a second. As for your foreshadowing, you really don't know how to foreshadow movies. Last I check, majority of the people get quite an impact from these kind of moments, but you poorly implement this in the movie. Your humor was by far weak, the only joke I had a laugh is when Wiglaf asked if you needed help in the cave, before Beowulf could answer, he'd say, "Didn't think so, go on ahead." As for the rest (mostly chick jokes), haha, so original.

Graphics-wise, it's top-notch in my eyes. I am now rest assured to know that Blizzard Entertainment and Legendary Pictures won't look terrible.

Edit: Going to see No Country for Old Men on Friday or Saturday, that movie better be worth it.
