So I came into the middle of Beowulf (2007), and was trying very, very hard to get past the uncanny valley to decide whether I’d like the movie or not. Then, Beowulf took the offer that Grendel’s mother gave him.
For a second, I thought about twittering a billion WTF?s! What is THIS??? Then I realized…
If Grendel’s mother looked like A. Jolie and made me the same offer, I wouldn’t say no, either. So the movie might not be any Beowulf that I know, but at least it’s not unbelievable. If he’d turned her down, THAT would have been unbelievable 😀
But I stopped watching after that, anyway.
