I'm not a huge fan of remakes.
There have been some decent ones I'll admit, and I'm all for a franchise if it's well done or at least pleasantly cheesy, but really if it was done well the first time, and everybody loves it, why mess with a cultural icon?
I just saw the trailer for the remake of Clash of the Titans and I just don't see why it was even done, except that someone loved the original and wanted to see what they could do about CGI-ing Calibos and the Kraken.
"Titans Will Clash" = dumbass tagline, but whatever
Why the Jock Rock soundtrack? It's a Greek myth!
I think Ray Harryhausen said it best...
"When they make it too real with CGI, it loses that fantasy quality."
I completely agree.
I will forever love the original best... HD and CGI are all fine and good, but *nobody* does it like Harryhausen.
RELEASE THE KRAKEN! That's my battle cry for the weekend.
Happy Friday the 13th!
