Has anyone seen the movie (yet)? It's okay--you can admit it. You wouldn't be alone. It grossed $28 million this weekend, so a fair amount of people ponied up for a ticket.
What I want to know is, why is Beowulf's body hairless? I don't remember reading the part where he takes a moment to wax his pecs.
Anyway, if you thought this was the first time Beowulf has been on screen, think again. Here's a story about some other adaptations.
