Beowulf...

...is good!

Or rather, it's a solid action movie that is made absolutely spectacular when you see it in IMAX 3D. I actually can't imagine NOT seeing it in IMAX 3D, and perhaps would recommend not seeing it at all if you can't.

I don't know if this is necessarily the future of movies, but the simulation of scale and perspective, in particular, completely changes the movie-watching experience, and I would be more than happy to see movie-makers continue to refine this process.

Just know that there were multiple times throughout the movie that my brain kind of felt like it was melting. In a good way.

Lincoln Center Loews, last night at 9:30pm. Were you there?

You know, actually the new Seamus Heaney translation of Beowulf made me understand why anyone would want to read it. Pretty cool stuff.
