Was it just me or was the new Medusa hot? Must have been her eyes. Quite striking, really.
While the new Clash of the Titans has been getting raked over the coals by the critics, i found the movie quite enjoyable. The characters were interesting, the effects were great. I liked the darker, more intense and action-packed storyline. I went and saw it in 2D, rather than 3D, since from what i’ve heard the director filmed it in 2d and only reluctantly had 3d added in post-production due to pressure from the studio. The only part that i didn’t quite get was the Djinn. What was up with them? They’re Persian, not Greek. (right?). Still, they were pretty cool.
The absolute best part of the film for me was Mt. Olympus. Specifically the “throne room” where all the gods were gathered around a room-sized representation of the Earth. Soooo amazing and cool. If for no other reason, that would make the movie worth seeing. My mind is swimming in ideas of projects from those scenes. I wish they would have shown more.
