New filmaking tactics...

Based on the Old English epic poem, the warrior Beowulf battles Grendel the monster, who is terrorizing towns. It's one of the oldest tales in the English language. Could it also represent the future of filmmaking? The epic poem Beowulf, more than 1,000 years old and long the bane of high school literature students, has been re-created in all its muscles-vs.-monsters glory in a $150 million movie that amounts to an artistic and commercial experiment in film technology.
This movie looks to be a great hit, but this was not the only movie done that brought in high graphics to the big screen. The other movie that I'm talking about is Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within. This movie was a really well done piece, when I first watched it I had a little trouble wtching it and thinking it was all generated by graphics and no actors well as far as visible. Here's a quick summary of the movie that was released in 2001.
In the year 2065, the next great assault against an invading race of phantom-like aliens is about to be launched. Dr. Aki Ross, a brilliant young scientist, races to find the invaders' secrets, not only to save the planet, but herself as well after her body is infected by alien particles. She teams up with the prestigious Deep Eyes military squadron, led by her old friend Grey Edwards. But as Aki, her mentor Dr. Sid, and Grey work toward a peaceful end, the scheming General Hein devises a plot to eradicate the aliens in one swift, destructive blow...even if it destroys the Earth right along with them.

This ia a movie I would like to see on the big screen. The graphics look to be top shelf! I love these type of movies because they remind me of playing some role playing video games.
