Perhaps surprisingly, I'm looking forward to the new Beowulf film coming out soon. Why, you may ask, would I actually WANT to see something coming out of Hollywood these days, knowing how I tend to react? because it's all being done in a "hyper realistic animation" style. Characters are made to look like the actors voicing them, but the whole thing is CGI (think Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within but with the actual actors' features). This means no CGI effects standing out from the film, no cheesy stock expressions/gestures, etc. It means the film can actually focus on the FILM.
Flashy? Sure, but flashy for the right reasons.
Besides, it's GOT to be better than the old Christopher Lambert flick.
