Movie Reviewz: Clash of The Titans (2010)

Tonights review, the 2010 American film, Clash of The Titans directed by Louis Leterrier. Written by Travis Beacham and Phil Hay. Starring Sam Worthington, Liam Neeson, Ralph Fiennes, Gemma Arteron, and Jason Flemyng.

The film begins with a short history of the world. Zeus, Poseidon, and Hades – sons of the Titans – fought the Titans and won through the help of the third son, Hades and his extremely deformed “son” The Kraken. So they win and the gods take over. Zeus and Poseidon trick Hades into becoming the lord of the Underworld. Also known as, Hades.

So this fisherman is out… fishing. He sees a coffin-esque thing floating in the middle of the ocean. He hauls it aboard and rips it open to reveal…

A dead lady and a baby. The baby is very alive. So fisherman (Spyros) raises the baby and names him Perseus. Then the father, wife, and sister of Perseus are killed by Hades. Perseus is like 25 when the happens. He is saved by some army men fighting against the Gods. Perseus is taken to the ocean city of Argos by the soldiers. When the Queen compares her daughter to the Goddess of beauty, Aphrodite, Hades appears and kills the Queen and tells the people in the castle that if the Princess is not sacrificed at the eclipse, the Kraken will destroy the city. Hades recognizes Perseus and vice-versa. Hades runs away and Perseus is thrown in jail. He is visited by Io, a not-quite a God woman who has been secretly protecting Perseus all his life. She tells him he is the son of Zeus and that he has to “kill” Hades. He agrees and sets off to find the way to kill the Kraken and stop the Princess from being sacrificed…

It happened again. I quite enjoyed this movie. The again part is that most people didn’t. I’m not sure why I liked it so much. The effects were sometimes great and sometimes horrible. I’m speaking of the Giant Scorpions and  Medusa. The latter was done bad. The Scorpions were fantastic. The makeup was good on the creatures like the Djinn and Calibos. The fight scene with the Scorpions was the best I’ve seen in awhile. Sam Worthington seemed stiff. I think that was the worst part.

I go into movies with no expectations. That’s why I like everything I see. I just sit back and enjoy. Whether it’s campy or just silly. Go see this movie. It’s worth it.

Happy Easter!

In Which I speak my Mind

My heart is never broken
my patience never tried
I got seven days to live my life
or seven ways to die
Seven days to live my life
or seven ways to die

The very talented David Bowie everyone, let’s give him a hand!

Let’s move on here,

First, sorry about the non-posts for awhile there. I watched “The Beast of Yucca Flats” last night and it isn’t even worth reviewing. It’s just there isn’t anything to it. It’s the most laughable movie I’ve seen in my entire life, second being “2001: A Space Odyssey” (best movie ever my buttocks). It was incoherent and hilarious. Worst movie I’ve seen in my life. Period.

Sky Captain and The World Of Tomorrow

Today, being Black Friday, I went out with dad to go too Half Price Books ( The best place ever) and bought several items one pictured too your left. The others are presents too two different members of my immediate family. Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow is a 2004 American pulp adventure science fiction film written and directed by Kerry Conrad in his directorial debut. The film is set in an alternitive 1939 and follows the adventures of Polly Perkins(Gwyneth Paltrow) ), a newspaper reporter for The Chronicle, and H. Joseph “Joe” Sullivan (Jude Law), known as “Sky Captain”, as they track down the mysterious “Dr. Totenkopf ” (thank you Wikipedia). I watched this movie a few year back and thought it was kind of weird. I was like, ten though, so you can’t really expect me to get a movie like that. Also, at Burgur King, while eating lunch, me and Dad disscussed how someone could

simply live in a Walmart. They have food, clothes, Televisions, and they’re open 24/7.

Tonight is part 1 of the Monk series finale. I have never watched a series finale before. Come to think of it, I have watched the Scrubs Series finale, but I would not count that because they’re bringing it back. Also, Clone Wars is on tonight. I hope I can watch both. The past few episodes of The Clone Wars have really impressed me. I cannot wait to see what’s next.
