Anyone else seen the Beowulf movie?

Parts of it are excellent but the depiction of Grendel's mother seems more designed to titillate the modern audience than to remain true to the original.

What I particularly liked is how Grendel spoke Ænglisc in distinction to all other characters whose dialogues are in current Modern English.
