So I went to watch this movie called the Clash of the Titans with my bf recently. It was in a word…lousy. =x
There were quite a few inconsistencies and I’m not quite sure if the movie intends to sell itself as an serious epic movie or something that sprouts lame dialogue at whim.
Case in point:
Soldier plays a flute badly. Captain takes flute away from soldier and breaks it in half. Soldier takes out another flute with a deadpan expression. =x
Another thing I just can’t wrap my mind around is…just how they know Perseus would be the one to defeat the Gods? Why is this mysterious lady stalking Perseus since he was a baby? How in the world did she manage to ease into Perseus’ life as if it was an everyday occurrence? Why is it that when we first see Perseus’ mother in the huge box in which they were both locked into, she had dark hair and when we see her again in a flashback, she has blond hair???
Medusa was supposed to have been turned into the monster we all love to hate because she had seduced Poseidon in Athena’s temple according to one of the myths about her. In the movie however, it was said that Athena turned Medusa into a monster coz she sought refuge in her temple, got taken anyway by Poseidon and dared to ask for condolences from the Goddess. Like…WTH! Gotten raped, asked for condolences and STILL got turned into a monster?! Where’s the justice in that?! Sheesh.
AND…Pegasus was supposed to have sprang from Medusa’s fallen body as her offspring. Not anyhow fly in to make a dramatic appearance and claim that it’s a gift from the Gods. Plus it’s white. =.=
Oh and there were no Titans, Zeus and his gang are not technically considered Titans, who were their fathers.
I now know why this movie has such bad reviews. =x
If you ask me, the 1981 version might have been more interesting… =.=
