Saw Clash of The Titans The Other Day....

After hearing a lot of negative reviews, and always feeling sketchy about ANY remake, I was a little apprehensive when my son was begging to go see the movie last Sunday. Since EVERY review I heard stated that the 3-D sucked, I opted to avoid the hour-long drive to the nearest 3-D capable theatre, and go see it in our own little podunk movie house in Oxford.

The movie started with a bang and didn't let up! I loved the effects, especially the arrival of Hades, the Kraken, Medusa and the little winged demons. I especially enjoyed the nod to the original (and the Ray Harryhausen) in the brief cameo of Bobo the mechanical Owl. While bits and pieces were changed or updated, I felt the producers did a bang-up job staying true to the original story. All in all, it was a really fun romp! I give it four out of five severed Medusa heads.
