Alright so last night David and I finally watched Beowulf, and it wasn't at all what I had expected. I did know that it would be all done in CGI and I thought that it looked pretty cool, however, I didn't know that it wouldn't follow the poem. I remember reading this poem a long time ago and it was never one of my favorites-I thought it was a little boring. Anyway while watching the movie I started thinking this is not how I remember the poem being, so of course after the movie I went and googled Beowulf and sure enough I was right. The movie wasn't really like the poem at all, I mean sure they had followed some of the stuff but overall they changed quite a bit. Well David liked it but couldn't see why I bothered me so much since I didn't really like the poem all that much. All I can say is that I'm one of those people that when you read something and they then make a movie it should pretty much follow the storyline. I mean what would you think if you were watching Romeo and Juliet and in the end they are both alive and live happily ever after--sure it would be nice but that's not how the story goes and I would hate it. Oh and speaking of Romeo and Juliet I didn't like the remake of it with Claire Danes and Leo DiCaprio.
