... about this film. I don't trust it, but I may be willing to give it a shot. Nice to know the writers have some passion for the project. It'll just all come down to if I like their angle and the rancor-faced kraken. (I miss the fishy mutton-chops.)

Cause you suck at this one.
March 19, 2010, 3:55 p.m. CST
...is lame. That's probably the only thing about the original movie that I found less than perfect: they show just a little too much Kraken in that first scene.

So has everyone. But have they actually understood it. And why does EVERYONE have to read Campbell. Why can't they read the myths and draw their own and maybe - gasp - different conclusions. George Lucas did the Campbell thing over 30 years ago. It was utterly inspired. But it was THIRTY YEARS AGO!!!!
March 19, 2010, 4:10 p.m. CST
Some plot improvements from the original and today's SFX and this movie could really rock!

...who think they can do better than the original. That's why they never honor the source material. That's why Michael Bay's transformers look like douchebags. He figured he could make them look better...he's a cocksmoker, and these guys are probably cocksmokers, too. We'll see.

is how they are going to present the Medusa sequence. This was the best part of the original movie. It was a slow, suspenseful build up with almost no music. If they turn this into a quick cut, music video style action sequence, I'll be really disappointed.

He'll, the poster gave away the ending. So it's nothing new. That said, I agree the film has enough spectacle that they could afford to hold Big K back.
March 19, 2010, 6:11 p.m. CST
it's directed by Louis Letterier. It'll be utter shit.

...as I said I'm excited about it, but wouldn't it be cool to have a completely new Greek mythology story interpretation? It doesn't even have to be the Perseus story. I know the intrinsic value of a "remake" is what makes the Hollywood system move forward these days, but if this thing feels like too much of a retread - i.e., 90 percent of the story beats are the same, which it sounds like they might be - doesn't that dampen enthusiasm a bit? Here's hoping it feel fresh enough to entrance us.

March 19, 2010, 6:30 p.m. CST
This movie may be fun, but you cannot respect screenwriters who claim they know about Greek mythology yet don't mention that clearly there are Olympian gods, not Titans in this movie. Why not call this Perseus or something like that? First that jackass with the Lightning Thief movie, now this. BAD WRITERS, BAD!
March 19, 2010, 6:59 p.m. CST
First, you're apologizing for the studio remaking Clash of the Titans because "it hasn't aged all that well". Then you're apologizing for the them working on crap movies because "they weren't the only ones!" Come. On. Beaks. Credibility? Heard of it. OK. Now I'll try the interview.
March 19, 2010, 7:06 p.m. CST
It seems like you're giving all credit for the movie- what creatures they put in, etc- to these two despite the fact that they're working on someone else's original draft. That seems a bit disingenuous to me and disrespectful to the first screenwriter.
March 19, 2010, 7:55 p.m. CST
I'm actually looking forward to. I'm confident this won't suck. I just wonder, if they do a sequel, if they'll use anything at all from the unproduced "Force of the Trojans", Harryhausen's own followup that was suppose dto come out in 83 or something.
March 19, 2010, 7:57 p.m. CST
from someone who saw the movie in a special screening for the owners of 3d Cinemas: <p>http://tinyurl.com/ygup2hg <p>I was expecting that the 3d will be rushed,since it was a last minute decision to turn the film from 2D into 3D.once again Cameron has been proven correct about 3D conversion that is not something that simple to do.

"...as Sam got involved and gave Louis his take on things..." Look, I'm not necessarily a Sam Worthington hater, but I find it hilarious that this story was in any way shaped by Sam's "take on things." Is he a writer? Does he have a background in mythology we don't know about? I thought he was just a mediocre flavor-of-the-day actor who has fallen ass-backwards into a pile of high profile acting gigs for some reason. Who the shit cares what Sam Worthington has to say about the direction of the story? Just shut up and act, monkey. Leave the writing to the writers.

Anyone remember that old Homestar cartoon where Strongsad goes to a "Clash of the Titans" con, dressed as Calibos? "I was just wondering if you still wanted that bust of Bubo..."

Yep, I remember. Speaking of which, it's been too damned long since they've put up a new cartoon.<br>As for Clash, I like the writers' philosophy on this. But could we please NOT see Medusa's face this time, unless the director's figured out a way to turn his audience to stone if they look at her?
March 20, 2010, 10:55 a.m. CST
Do them all, as often as necessary until they are done right. Remake BattleField Earth for all I care. Or the Swarm. Or Avatar. But stop remaking good and great movies!

Maybe Hollywood should make a (1st ed.) Gamma World film! Just so long as the villain doesn't have 18 intensity radiation eyes.
March 22, 2010, 7:25 a.m. CST
Though one aspect of the movie is a mythological fuck up that already exists in the first moive, the Krakken, which is from norse mythology, not greek. Though the ancient greeks did had a giant sea monster of their own, called "Cetus". It's from that mythological creature that the word "cetacean" cames from.

And yet has the balls to claim the movie he thinks is the best of the 2000s is IRREVERSIBLE. Give up the intellectual pretense, Mr Beaks, you are anything but.

YES! My wife wrote intp Homestar as to whether Strongbad had ever seen Clash of the Titans, and about 2-3 weeks later that popped up on the 100th episode! Most excellent...
