Beowulf

My friend, tears_of_nienna is less than pleased with some of the changes in the movie adaptation of Beowulf.

That doesn't mean you have to FUCKING INVENT GRENDEL'S FATHER AND THEN HAVE HROTHGAR'S FOLK KILL HIM OFF SO GRENDEL CAN BE SAD. Grendel's motives are explained very clearly in the poem: It harrowed him / to hear the din of the loud banquet / every day in the hall, the harp being struck / and the clear song of a skilled poet (the Heaney translation 87-90, if you're interested). He's like the Grinch, except instead of stealing presents he munches on Whos.
