Beowulf, bitch!


Tan and I watched Beowulf & Grendel yesterday. While not the greatest movie, it was fun and epic and had a weird troll-on-witch sex scene. Plus Grendels mother was badass. Well, it piqued our interest so tonight I may rent the Beowulf movie made in 1999 starring Christopher Lambert.

that was pretty rad. the sex scene was very sensual, it made me miss watching animal planet.

oh man, check out the wiki entry for christopher lambert's Beowulf, fucking awesome. i think he wrote the entry himself!

check it out:

"Beowulf and Grendel fight again. Beowulf cuts Grendel's arm off with a retracting cestus. After this the castle celebrates as they think it is all over. Kyra declares her love for Beowulf and he returns her affection. Kyra tells him that she killed her previous husband after he treated her badly. Beowulf tells her that his mother is human and his father is Baal, "God of lies". This explains his tremendous fighting prowess."

that or it was written by a 6th grader. lets watch this soon.

that wiki entry is pure fucking poetry! my favorite line: "Their sexual intercourse created their child Grendel"

brought a tear to my eye...

you boys should read "Grendel" by John Gardner. Modern Beowolf tale from Grendel's point of view. Gardner is one hell of a writer and if gore is what you're after, this is your book.

sounds interesting- thanks for the recommendation! I'm not necessarily after gore, but I do like to see a troll rip into a Dane now and then

we're watching 'Beowulf Christopher Lambert Edition' tonight at 8pm if anyone is interested!

btw, the beowulf with christopher lambert was the biggest piece of shit i've ever suffered through! i've never seen that many porno actors in a film without seeing at least a couple boobs!

That movie was great! it had everything, i especially liked the codpieces, you can really see where the 14.95$ budget went.

if we're gonna lie and say it was good I'll say my favorite part was the backflips. chris lambert is the fucking backflip master! and he had a great fighting style, too: he'd sidle up to grendel..stab stab slice slice...and then backflip like 12 times- dismount- triple sow-cow- fire off a couple of crossbow rounds- backflip some more and then chop off grendels arm. chuck norris couldn't have done it better!
