Medieval Mayhem Sunday

Watched two movies last night (really, this is what holidays are for). The first was Beowulf and Grendel, a somewhat plodding and gritty retelling of the first two bits of the epic tale of Beowulf (as you may have guessed). The second was The 13th Warrior a much more exciting film also more-or-less about Beowulf, this time covering the third bit of the poem (sort of, in a way, in that it mentions a dragon). Fun, lots of swords and battle and general squalor, and, as an added bonus, a bit of Antonio Banderas.
