The original gave us meduae with shortbows, giant scorpions, and clockwork owls.

It had a great plot and great effects, and is permanently burned into my 6 year old brain.

But apparently it's already been remade, and is coming out- with a different plot- this spring:

Pray for it...

Wow - this brings back some memories... Wink

As much as this movie could do with a great remake, I wonder/worry how Hollywood will "improve" (read change) it to feed into today's pop culture and media grinder. The trailer looks pretty solid and I am optimistic, but cautious at the same time.

Spoilers I guess.

So, apparently rather than being about how in general the gods are arbitrary and sort of suck, as in the original, the remake is Hades vs Zeus. Zeus is good, Hades is evil and wants to destroy the world, ONLY 1 MAN CAN STOP HIM.

Hmm. Still, gonna go see it.

Pretty much, though I'll likely rent it on Blu-Ray unless the reviews are exceedingly good. With the advent of kids/family/etc. actually seeing a movie in the theaters is an exceedingly rare occasion.

It seems this Clash of the Titans goes to 11.

Kaiser Soze to boot.

Anyone see this? Is it worth it?

My son and I have seen it. We liked it. Don't expect it to be a technical upgrade to the original. Like with all movies they take liberties.
