Some of you are familiar with my MOVIE REVIEW page on our web site. I just viewed Beowulf recently to write a review. Wow. I just saw new boundaries for PG-13 (of course, you can also get the “unrated” director’s cut). If I only would have watched the special features section on the DVD first then I could have heard the director’s intentions– and I quote:
“This is Beowulf… It’s gonna be no bullsh**, and it’s gonna be just the way it is. In the process, it’ll evolve and we’ll figure out what the movie is. Right now, I can only say that this has nothing to do with the Beowulf that you were forced to read in junior high school. It’s all about eating, drinking, killing, and fornicating.” –Robert Zemeckis
And take it from me… that summarizes it well. (You can read my entire review of that film here.)
Hmmmmm. Dorothy… we ain’t in Kansas anymore!
