Mythology

Review: ‘Immortals’

Allow me summarize this move in three letters.

“M-E-H”

Since the first whispers of this movie began hitting the net, the marketing, of which a substantial part of the movies budget went to, has tried to cram down our throats the fact that this abortion of Greek mythology comes from the same producer that brought us 300, Mark Canton. For those of you not familiar with Mr. Canton, this is the same man responsible for producing the atrocities that were Red Planet and Godsend. If these names fail to illicit any memories then consider yourself a member of the lucky few that were spared. Sure, 300 was awesome, but you take enough shots in the dark and eventually you’re bound to hit something. Just in case you missed how much they really want you to know it comes from the same producer, you can listen to any trailer or simply check above the title where this little gem of information is prominently displayed.

Did you like the Clash of the Titans remake? Well congratulations… you are the 1%. Blargh! That crap fest was an unbearable, soulless, disaster. A perversion of literature and the very idea of storytelling. Regardless of my personal opinion and mass poo poo reviews, it’s getting a sequel, Wrath of the Titans, which is currently in production, set for a March 20th release. And now , as a sign of brass confidence, Warner Bros. is prepping for a 3rd flick. *Derp*

The brothers Warner have re-hired Wrath of the Titans scribes David Leslie (haha..Leslie) Johnson and Dan Mazue to write the script for the third installment, which will continue the journey (aka taking liberty with literature)  of the character Perseus played by Sam Worthington.

This seems a bit preemptive, but I guess there is no wrong in getting all of their eggs in one basket in case the second one is successful. They just better hope the sequel is way better than the first and makes decent bank at the box office.

The first sequel is also set to star Ralph Fiennes, Liam Neeson, Danny Huston, Edgar Ramirez, Bill Nighy and Rosamund Pike and will be released in 3D and 2D theaters on March 30, 2012.

Andrew Zubko, of  “Batman vs. Shark” Net Fame was  commissioned by the Portland Mercury to draw on subjects picked by their readers through an online vote and use the final result as an epically hilarious work of sensationalism. I wonder however, about his drawing style. This seems very lackluster, and quickly thrown together, brilliantly of course, but not as perfect looking as Batman Vs. Shark. That picture looks like a gorgeously rendered piece of comic artwork, where this picture looks drawn by someone else.

I have a feeling Zubco is going to make huge Internet waves with his incredible talent and variety of deliciously snarky and odd work. Lets keep’em coming!

Also hit it here to see Batman Vs. Vader by f Dave Dorman. You decide which is more badass.
