Beowulf: What the lady said ...

The lady, in this case, being Jessica Smith (sorry, no direct link, as the blog of Jessica's you'd find this at is private) :

Yes, Beowulf in 3-D kicks ass

Saw Beowulf in 3-D (at an Imax theatre)... it was awesome. Yeah, ok, it's not Mulholland Drive, not "history-making film," but 3-D? Beowulf? It's exactly as cool as you think it will be, if not cooler. Plus, it made me want to go reread the book. Any movie that makes you want to go read or reread the book...
I had the same impulse after I saw it, and dug out my copy of Seamus Heaney's translation.
