One of our lovely readers, Katie, made some really great movie suggestions on last week’s MMM. I wrote a bunch down for future reference, but the one that particularly stood out was Clash of the Titans. I’ve never seen the 1981 version, though I’ve heard great things about it being a classic fantasy film so I’ll definitely be putting it on the Netflix queue.
A few weeks ago, my little brother pointed out the trailer to the new and upcoming Clash- and that’s what I remembered when Katie mentioned it. I gotta say, I’m way psyched for this film! Fantastic visual effects (as those Greek myth monsters were usually hideous!), lots of mythological references to Geek over (did you see Medusa?) and Liam Neeson + Ralph Fiennes + Alexa Davalos? *fangirl squee* This is going to be epic!
Plus, that song used the trailer is The Bird and the Worm by The Used. “all alone he turns to stone while holding his breath half to death, terrified of what’s inside he crawls like a worm from a bird.” GREAT song.
