Giants and Losers


Saw the new Clash of the Titans movie this weekend, which was okay. In a lot of ways it was better than the original (more story)... but then the new one was kinda too gray.

New Kraken looks like typical video game monster with the tiny wide-set eyes and bzillion teeth, with everything in that same gun-metal-gray video game color...

Then again, Old Kraken looked an awful lot like a Rankin/Bass character...maybe the Bumble from Rudolph

are so many remakes that I have to think of them as completely different movies. You'll always be disappointed if you compare.

I laughed really loud when a scorpion went flying across the screen in slow-motion --- whoever thought that up is an accidental comedy genius. No, it wasn't supposed to be funny.

Old time BIG scorpions...New movie MAMMOTH scorpions.

When the original Clash of the Titans came out (I was in grade school) a girl in class announced that her dad owned a movie theater, and she would have everyone come watch Titans for her birthday.

I just assumed we were all going to this, but I'm almost sure I was one of the only people who didn't get invited. 

This still bothers me. Thanks a lot, little girl.
