Clash of the Titans teaser trailer is up and it looks like 300, Clash of the Titans (1981), Pathfinder, and Lord of the Rings had a sweet, sweet orgy for hours resulting in this beautiful piece of cinema love juice. I WILL watch this one in theatres, I don’t care if I have to kill a homeless man in the parking lot and take his change cup to the register so i can afford to get in. I won’t tell you what I will do for popcorn and an icee, but i’m relaxing my throat now in preparation.
It’s unavoidable, Hollywood is going to remake everything and there is nothing we can do to stop it. We can either A, bitch and complain and not let any enjoyment seep into our jaded pissed off heads. Then there is option B. This is when we take a step back look at the final product and say, “hey that was pretty fucking good.” All too often a solid remake is overshadowed by pissed off reviewers ripping it a new asshole because they feel their childhood is being violated. I’ve given into the Hollywood remake machine because to be honest, I’m a nerd and I have nothing better to do on a Friday night than go see the next remake. So with Clash of the Titans I chose option B. The fact is, I don’t have any emotions invested in the original. It was great when I was a kid but, let’s be honest the effects are dated and the story well, let’s just say they don’t make em’ like that anymore for a reason. After seeing this pretty fucking bad ass teaser all I can say is…You have my attention! I would like more please. Thank you.
