Beowulf Review

National Review (what other political magazine would bother, I wonder, or have a Beowulf scholar on staff) has a good review of Beowulf here.

Not planning to see the movie. I almost always wait for the DVD anyway, but I'm afraid that while I read Beowulf in college, of course, my interest in the Middle Ages before the 12th century was always quite minimal.

I was thinking of seeing BW in the theater, but a CBC reviewer played a couple of audio clips on the radio and they sounded dreadful! Why pay money to see unbelievable animated characters?

Have fun with your blog.

I also thought the voices sounded peculiar when I saw the trailer.

Thanks for stopping by, Prof!
