Brought to you by "The Man Who Cared Too Much" - Starring Christopher Lambert

This week we prepare ourselves for the 1999 version of the classic poem with Christopher Lambert as the title character. Things to watch out for: How many back flips over the camera, how many times Lambert can't see anything, and how many times he cares too much. The movie is currently on Netflix so check it out and come back when we review the movie in full.

Real Important Question

What does "Best Picture" mean to you? What things do you look for in a film to make you think it should win "Best Picture"?

When interviewed about filming Beowulf, Rhona Mitra admitted that everybody had told her not to do the film and it would be a nightmare and had said it was a nightmare and Romania was a hell-hole.

Mad Max, Mortal Kombat, Xena: Warrior Princess and Van Helsing are considered major influences behind the film.

Exercises: 

  • What is Beowulf ( the guy)? Is he Blade? 
  • Spot how many times does he care too much
  • Spot how many times can you tell that Lambert can’t see
  • Spot how many low angel flipping over the camera shots
Beowulf
Undefeatable
