Still shot from the movie: Beowulf.

Beowulf

English literature comes to digitally-enhanced life in this cinematic retelling of the classic legend. Beowulf (voice of Ray Winstone) defeats the demon Grendel (Crispin Glover) only to be forced to face the monster's mother (Angelina Jolie) who uses her seductive body as a weapon. (And viewers will have to ignore everything they know about genetics to believe this mother/son relationship.) Get the movie review and more. »
