Clash of the Titans 2010

Just got back (a while ago, now that I look at the time) from a late screening of Clash of the Titans and it's a helluva good time. It barely resembles the old-ish Harry Hamlin/Laurence Olivier one from the early 80s, and even less so my favorite Harryhausen flick Jason and the Argonauts from the 60s, although that stupid-ass clockwork owl thing showed up for a couple of seconds for a giggle.

But hot damn, it's an awesome fun good time of a movie! The only effects-work that was a little off seemed to be Medusa, but everything else looked amazing. I do miss Ray Harryhausen's stop-motion, sure, but, dude, this movie is so much fun that I barely remembered to miss it.

Liam Neeson and every-entrance-is-a-showstopper Ralph Fiennes, especially, are good. Whoever they got to play Io was hot as all hell and all properly ethereal to boot. And, hey, Aussie Sam Worthington's looking at three for three rock-balls movies in a row now following Terminator Salvation and Avatar.

I'm kind of hoping they do a series of kickass Greek and Roman mythology movies now. This thing is just a ton of fun. If you're looking for a good, fun time at the movies right now, then you could do a whole lot worse.

Unleash the Kraken, people. Unleash it!
