8/10: A Remake That Surpasses The...
Monday, April 5, 2010

A Remake That Surpasses The Original!!! Cherish your fond memories of the cult film favorite "Clash of the Titans" (1981) with Harry Hamlin, because "Incredible Hulk" director Louis Leterrier's remake twists virtually everything inside out. The superior remake eliminates some characters, replaces them with others, and alters the line-up of scenes. Indeed, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer's "Clash of the Titans" revised the Greek myth of Perseus, but the Warner Brothers redux gives the legend a heavy-duty overhaul. Scenarist Travis Beacham along with "├ćon Flux" co-scripters Phil Hay and Matt Manfredi have taken even more liberties with Greek mythology than Beverley Cross dared in the original. Comparatively, Leterrier and his scribes have surpassed the original simply because special effects technology has come so far since stop-motion guru Ray Harryhausen dazzled audiences with the 1981 version. Leterrier assembles gargoyles, gigantic back-hoe sized scorpions, a reptilian Medusa with writhing vipers for locks and a gaze that turns...

Clash of the Titans I watched the original 1980's version of the Greek based story starring Lord Sir Laurence Olivier, Dame Maggie Smith and Ursula Andress many times when I was a kid, I wasn't surprised I saw there was a remake coming out, from director Louis Letterier (The Transporter, The Incredible Hulk). Basically Hades (Ralph Fiennes) was tricked into running the Underworld by King of the Gods and his brother Zeus (Liam Neeson), but he is still powerful enough to make demands and get some revenge. On Mount Olympus, he argues that there is some kind of uprising happening, and he needs permission to destroy the Earth city of Argos (not to be confused with British retail stores), and he plans to do this by having the Kraken released. Meanwhile on Earth, fisherman Spyros (Pete Postlethwaite, in one of his final film roles before his tragic death) adopts little Perseus, but he dies from drowning and leaves...

"There is a god in you. Be sure to bring it. End of lesson". Well it's 6:30 PM on May 21st, 2011 and the world hasn't ended as predicted by Family Radio Evangelical preacher Harold Camping. Quite coincidentally, Argos is still standing too, as the Kraken unleashed by the underworld god Hades failed to destroy the city. I'm not sure how the legend of Medusa's gaze turning humans to stone translates to evil sea monsters, but I'll go with it. After all, Perseus and his fellow travelers went to a lot of trouble to put that head in a duffel bag. Oh wait, different movie.Actually, while I like to pan certain films with a bit of levity, I didn't think this one was too bad. It's been some time since I saw the original Harry Hamlin version, but catching this one today gives me some incentive to get hold of it...

Silly but fun; better than I expected Before watching this film I'd heard some fairly negative reviews but tried to view it with an open mind and must say it was better than I had expected. The story was pretty silly; I have no idea what the Kraken, a creature of Norse mythology was doing here amongst the gods of Greek Myth for a start! The story follows Perseus, a demigod who was found by a fisherman as a baby. When this stepfather is killed by Hades Perseus agrees to help the king after Hades threatens that he will set the Kraken on the city if his daughter isn't sacrificed. In order to defeat the Kraken Perseus and the soldiers assisting him must consult a group of witches and fight against several enemies including giant scorpions and the snake-haired Medusa who will turn any man who gazes upon her into stone.If you can suspend your disbelief...

Monday, August 30, 2010

It Does Have Some Cool Scorpions! All the joy I had in the hokey first film, disappeared as I watched this plodding, endless remake. There is no suspense, no justification, and the myth itself is pretty much ignored and changed around. There are characters that never existed. It seems that for twenty minutes they battle giant scorpions that later become their camels. The acting is dull. There is no human story. The Kraken is boring. We also have a brother fight between Zeus and Hades where Hades tricks his brother and the big Z has to go along with his wishes. All in all, by the time it was over there was no surprise, no tension, and no satisfaction. And what about Andromeda? Anyway, another time where Hollywood couldn't come up with anything new, so they decided to make this snorer.
