    Default "Beowulf"

    What a disappointment.

    Robert Zemeckis must have fallen asleep while directing it.

    Alan Silvestri provides a nice musical score for the film, though.

    Imagemotion-animated characters still look like zombies. I don't understand why the film couldn't have been live-action blended with computer generation. It worked well with Harry Potter and, to a lesser extent, Lord of the Rings.

    The Nords of the past are rolling in their graves.

    50-50 chance I will write a full review. Which means either I will or I won't.

    I am pretty wary of this film. I guess I get that it's a reinterpretation of Beowulf and not actually BEOWULF Beowulf... but something about making Grendel's mother a sexpot really irritates me.

    Yes, normally, I try to avoid Angelina Jolie like the plague. Her presence just drives me crazy. I would've at least preferred a no-name actress to portray her. I'm sick of looking at Angelina Jolie as the official sex symbol in practically every movie.

    It's the same deal with Morgan Freeman -- he seems to be Hollywood's official wise old black guy character.

    I am not impressed.
    Relationships have normal ebbs and flows. They do not automatically get better and better when the participants learn more and more about each other. Instead, the participants have to work through the tensions of the relationship (the dialectic) while they learn and group themselves and a parties in a relationships. At times the relationships is very open and sharing. Other time, one or both parties to the relationship need their space, or have other concerns, and the relationship is less open. The theory posits that these cycles occur throughout the life of the relationship as the persons try to balance their needs for privacy and open relationship.
