    It does indeed.. However I haven't seen anything bad come from Zemeckis. I'll be willing to give it a shot.

    Yeah, I'm sure the script and direction will be good, but I just hope it's not too distracting visually.

    I'm sure you get used to it after watching it for a few minutes, especially if it's good.

    This looks interesting.

    An animated movie where they are animating the characters too look like the actors.

    I think it looks pretty interesting... I saw the trailer for it tonight at Stardust, and I'm a fan of the animated-to-look-like-the-real-actors look. :)

    no way. have you seen the trailer? the technology has advanced so much, plus it is in 3d --- plus this is an action movie, not a children's book!
     
  17. I'm trying to remain optimistic about it. :hs:

    Still looks like World of Warcraft. I'm hoping it's great, but those graphics are killing me so far.
    But if it's 3D, it might just work out.

    Theres this one trailer where at the end he screams "I, AM, BEOWULF", and the way he says it you can tell it was copied right off of "THIS IS SPARTA".

    I really think what is gonna distinguish it is seeing it in 3D. I mean, I saw the trailer again over the weekend at the movies. And the difference between the big screen and my computer is enormous with this film. And I think the 3D on the big screen is going to push it over the edge in awesomeness.

    3D projected at 4k usually means your gonna see more mistakes than the same image displayed at NTSC resolution, what bugs me is that this movie is entirely possible in live action but they chose to make it in 3D, which to me means that they probably just wanted to show off tech rather than make an interesting movie, i will have my doubts until i see it in person

    Why can't they show off tech and make the movie interesting? I think the style is gonna be cool and I don't see how that is gonna take away from this classic story.
