I Will See This One

on the big screen.

I don't see many movies a year. I didn't see Ninja Assassin in the theater like I wanted to. This one I will do my damndest to see. I loved Greek and Roman mythology when I was a girl. I still enjoy it. The original Clash of the Titans was my favorite movie for a long time when I was younger. And I'll admit I'm a Ray Harryhausen fan.(Oops my geek is showing. I also watched the original Dr. Who when I was a kid, but haven't seen any of the new ones. And yes I have a favorite Dr.)

The original CotT stayed pretty close to legend, though they did combine some elements. The new one will apparently be in 3D. I will neither deny or confirm rumors that when I heard this I wet my pants a little. (only joking, remember the name of the blog.*sheesh*)

I don't think they stayed as true to the myths in this newer one, but it looks like they're making a bigger storyline to add to the tension. I can dig it. We'll see how it pans out before I give them a full pass on any bastardization of mythology though. They do have the added draw, in my book of Liam Neeson and Ralph Fiennes. I'm a fan of both actors' work.

On a completely different note, I need only 140 words to reach my writing goal for the month. I have to get on that!

Until next time, citizens!

Good job on the goal. I don't know if I'll go see this one in theaters or not. I only go see a few movies a year also.

I will see this in the theater, too. The original has a warm spot in my heart, too, but not because I remember much of it. There was a moment when my young cousin said Medusa's blood looked like Hunt's Tomato Sauce, and we all laughed, and it was a warm family moment that lives in my heart forever.

I love when they totally bastardize mythology, none of which seems to be very consistent, anyway, so they get a full pass from me. :)

Medusa's blood did look like that in the original! lol

Thanks Sue, but I'm not there yet. Just have to find two hot minutes together to get writing!
