saw beowulf last night
at imax in sydney
biggest screen in the world
like the size of three story building
plus
it was in the new 3D
forget that olde malarkey with the blue n red cellophane
this is the real deal
look
i thought this fuckin’ film was amazing!
maybe the best cinema experience i ever had even
anthony hopkins as the olde king
malkovich as a slimey advisor
the dude playing beowulf was incredible
course they are in it and they arent
its some kinda hybrid computery doo dah
excellent stuff
only slightly ruined by angie jollys lack of nipples and genitalia
ok i can see the genitalia would not make it
then give her some pants
cos that smooth barbie nothing is ridiculous
but
the nipples
c’mon
a great big pair of bazookas yet no nipples
to me
thats more obscene than the nipples ever could be
jesus
how can a nipple be obscene?
can us grown ups be allowed see the anatomically correct version?
theres also a bit of malarkey with beowulfs whatnot
he strips naked to fight the first monsta
who is a falling apart disgusting ‘orrible thing
(like you know who…that olde singer)
and we can tell by the queens expression
that our hero fights with a broad n long sword
but from that point in
beowulfs anglosaxon weapon
is hidden behind all kinds of convenient things
now i know that people say i look like this guy
and i just wanted to see if we were really similar
in all respects
but now i guess i’ll never know
the film is marvellous in its 3Dness
when he dives in the water
the viewer is suddenly in water too
arrows and coins and blood and bodyparts whizz past
talk about really being there…
i loved this film
i wanna see it again
i give it five stars and two moons
a good one
see it!

    Thanks for your recommendation. This sounds exactly like the movie I should see. Still, like always before the biggest flaw of these movies is real humans. Dinosaurs, dragons and toys work well, because nobody knows how they actually would move or look. Real humans will always be the problem, because everybody knows what they look like and how they move.

    Some films I´ve seen in Imax have really made it to a extraterrestial experience. Sydney is the biggest? I thought that one in London was certainly big enough.

    I remember reading an adaptation of this when I was about 8 or 9 and being scared more of Grendel’s mother than of Grendel himself. Looking forward to seeing this, thanks for the recommendation.

    The ‘Lord of the Rings’ films left an endelible impression on me & one of the reasons was the haunting soundtrack. What was the soundtrack like pls Killa?

    “can us grown ups be allowed see the anatomically correct version?”

    No. Sex destroys society. Violence and gore in the movies are a-okay, though.

    yeah I’m sure the 1st and 2nd graders I teach need to see genitals. I’ve had to help them dress and undress their Barbies…you gotta be outta your mind!!! Sorry, but Beowulf looks like more Hellywood Crap. Body parts…?? Neato…Hopkins is good but he is an ego-ridden over-paid star…Can’t help it, integrity is essential, even in playacting…..don’t care for animation or faked history, or glorification of swords and axes splitting people in half. Neato! I’ll stick to the literature…oh yeah, Beowulf sucked !!! required reading for 10th graders. Why don’t they make a movie of….oh yeah, it’ll suck!!! Have a Nice Day …Ourobouros ~*~

    Loved that movie as well, the 3d Imax thing is kinda fun. 300 was very good in that environment as well. And a pretty good flick for my money I wager. Just off work so I’ve been watching the Two Towers again, much better the second time around.

    I heard a review of it on Radio 4 in November and they ripped it to pieces, but it’s been a long time since the BBC got something right.
    Love to all.

    I don’t like adventure, sci-fi, comedy or totally unrealistic movies. I enjoyed the drama “No Country For Old Men”. Not good for children either.

    It seems like many commentors including me forget to mention the impeccable quality of el momento siguiente and el momento descuidado. These acoustic gems put extra pressure on the vocalist and Sk shines in prime time. Never tired of his vocals. He has full-blown mystique. Dreamy, relaxed, tender, detached, mellow, uptempo and refined with exemplary pronunciation.

    Sounds fantastic. Bit behind the times I know, but I watched Blood Diamond last night. One of the best flicks I have seen in a long while. Very violent not one for the chillens. Didnt know Leonardo such a superb actor. Indelible? definitely, learning knew words from this blog and commentory, thanks!

    nudity with no naughty bits…hmmm a bit of a worry, really…to me it just puts the focus more on the bits that they’re trying to hide…
    well, not going to be able to get onto a computer for a week or so after today, going camping in the wilds of central queensland…
    steve, have a stupendous new year and hope that ’08 gives to you all that you wish for…same goes for all fellow fiendsss out there…
    here come the bull dust and flies and sleeping out under the stars in a swag…sounds pretty good actually…
    love always…
