Beowulf in 3D

Today I got to experience Beowulf in Imax 3D. I was very impressed!The entire movie, from trailers to ending credits, was 3D. That was something I have never experienced before (I've seen movies that are both 2D and 3D but never all 3D) and it was a pleasant experience to say I actually flinched/jumped when things, such as rocks, knives, and blood, came flying at my face.

The animation of the characters was very impressive for today's standards, but I do agree with critics that this movie would have been far better had it been done with real actors. So much can be said through the emotions of an actor's eyes, which is something that animation has yet to capture. At times the characters seemed very wax like and unhuman.

In other news Bren and I had Marble Slab today before the movie. It was marvelous!

I didn't know they hadn't used the real actors. That's too bad. That's one of the things I liked about POTC, that with Davy Jones, they often pasted the actor's eyes over top of the animation.
Also mmmmm Marble Slab.
