Stuck in the uncanny valley

Perfect demo of the uncanny valley curve. I found movement of humans in the movie "funny". Non-human creatures were awesome though, so were the flying sequences.

Incredible CG!

My only qualm was that everyone looked cross-eyed which was really distracting! All of the other CG elements were striking and realistic, however. I was told that it the movie is far more remarkable in IMAX 3D.

Beowulf

It reminded me of the old Frank Frazetta movie "Fire and Ice," where the actors perform and animation is used over the shot to give it life, it was a Barbarian fantasy meets Polar Express technique. I was expecting another Lord of the Rings and got Polar Express animantion. However, it was done very well except for the choice of how Grendel looks, It looked like an Ent that fell into a vat of taffy and it was as hard to believe Crispin Glover was behind that character as it was to believe Gary Oldman was Mason Verger in Hannibal. Still and all Angelina J was just great in her character. One thing was strange, Grendel was 15 feet tall in battle and after the battle as Beowulf was kicking him out of the door Grendel mistakenly was drawn down to regular height, wierd. Ray Winstone seems like another version of Sean Bean in delivery and received a gift of a good build through animation only.

Beowulf

Lots of animation. Almost thought I was in another Disney movie of Shrek. Physically the people looked somewhat real untill they showed their teeth. I guess they haven't quiet perfected that yet.
Good movie to watch, seemed realistic in trailers untill you sit down and watch it. *tip* sit in the back..it looks better

If you get past the first 30 minutes, you can sit through the rest

Basically this movie looks far less CG in the trailer than it does in the seats. Not that I was expecting much differently, considering I came in with the knowledge the whole thing was done in CG. Alot of the characters just look kinda plastic. After about 30 minutes, it stopped bothering me because the story picked up enough to grab my attention.

The true saving grace for this movie had to be all the moments they give in to the comedy of the situation. For instance there is some semi-nudity (no naughty bits), but their method of concealing some of the more "Adult" oriented material was VERY amusing. If you don't go in with high expectations, you wont be let down.
