bad bad bad bad bad CGI

Just sat down with Melinda to watch Beowulf, which is all motion-capture CGI. We watched about five minutes of repetitive background textures, wonky lighting effects, cracked physics, and unnecessary rotation and bullet-time cuts, heavily salted with clothing that hangs just a bit wrong on bodies that just don't quite move like humans under Newtonian gravity. We turned it off. Mel summed it up perfectly; she said, "I thought this was a movie."

Note to Hollywood: if it sucks, don't do it.
