CLASH OF THE TITANS - A BADASS TAKEDOWN



CLASH OF THE TITANS - A BADASS TAKEDOWN

The Hollywood remake machine is still in overdrive. But this might be another instance where they shouldn't have bothered. The fact is that the original CLASH OF THE TITANS is technically, a stupid film. The original Harryhausen animation was about as good as it got during that time, but that was it. Harry Hamlin couldn't act and Lawrence Olivier was asleep at the wheel. The story of the Medusa, the Kraken and Calibos were all great if the viewing audience was 8 years old. This new PG-13 version is CG heavy and looks extremely light in the intelligence department. Watch the trailer and see for yourself. This time around, the Medusa looks strangely hot and the Kraken looks more than a little like that horrible American remake of GODZILLA. Starring "the modern everyman" Sam Worthington? It is hard to get excited for this thing.
