Beowulf - MUST WATCH (spoiler-free)

Just saw Beowulf on the big screen... (not IMAX, just the normal cinema)

OMG THE CG IS DAMN AWESOME TO THE MAXIMUS DOT COM!!!

At first when I saw the poster for Beowulf I thought it was some chapalang horror/thriller movie that involves some monster terrorising villagers and freaking the hell out of them while everyone just screams and screams.

Oh wait, come to think of it... it is a movie that involves that. But one thing's for sure -- it ain't no B grade chapalang movie!

What makes it so awesome is it's all CG -- and this CG is by far the best my eyes have ever seen. I always thought it would be some time before we can witness such a high amount of realism in 3D human modeling (especially when it comes to those very tricky facial expressions).

Usually when you're watching 3D models of humans in movies, your thoughts would be along the lines of "it's CG alright, but it looks damn real". You'll usually realise first that it's CG before thinking that they're human actors. But when I was watching Beowulf, I first thought of them as real humans before realising -- with plenty of double-takes -- that it's pure CG.

Amazing. Must watch.

Some funny thoughts:
- Oh... if you ever feel the urge to say "tonight, we dine in..." (insert favourite 300 spartan movie quote) during some parts of the movie... I can identify with you
- If you somehow thought about Austin Powers... I can also identify

If there's one thing I hated about the movie, it's Angelina Jolie's totally unnecessary fake accent. Could it be that she's confused with the other movie (Alexander) where she also plays "the mother" role? Gee, I love you Angelina, but slang-bang fake accent... ugh.

Beowulf seems to frequently have an intense urge to get naked though D8
