Beowulf Marathon ... er, Painful Sprint

I don't know if two films a marathon make, but SciFi Channel is now showing the two worst film versions of Beowulf back-to-back: Grendel and Beowulf.

Avert your eyes!


  1. How on earth does Beowulf count as sci-fi? Is it a genre division relaxed by the fact that most modern scifi is actually fantasy anyway, so why not include old english fantasy, or do they just figure it will appeal to the same people as would watch sci-fi?

  2. Your protest might be one of the reasons SciFi Channel is changing their name to SyFy.

    Another reason for the name change might just be to be obnoxious.
