Anybody seen this? www.beowulf-movie.com/

I'm looking forward to its release. That quasi-sci fi movie with Christopher Lambert sucked pretty bad.

Ever try to read it in the original old english?

Pain in the ass. Its really almost a different language.

Should rock as long as they don't try to "20th centurize" it.

As a matter of fact I have. It is a little tough at first but by the end I was used to it. I hope they don't ruin the story with a half-assed movie.

"then hrothgar smited the wyrm with hrunting..."

didn't they already make a "beowulf"? or wasn't The 13th Warrior some bastardization of it?

Yeah the 13th warrior was supposedly some sort of "adaptation" i guess?

The 13th warrior was a screen adaptation of the book Eaters of the Dead
