Clash of the Titans in Fifteen Minutes
Before we start: I seem to be nominated for a thing! (And so are copperbadge and otterdance!) My name is misspelled, and Neil Gaiman will probably crush us all, but I've never been nominated for a thing before, so that's pretty awesome. Voting ends on--4/15, I think?



So. PREVIOUSLY ON MOVIES IN FIFTEEN MINUTES, FOR REASONS THAT WILL LATER BE APPARENT: TroyKing Arthur! 300! A couple of Twilight things! So... here's a palate cleanser before Eclipse, I guess.

She's going to spank me?Collapse )

The characters who have names attack the scorpions with swords and shields and spears and sandals and thigh muscles and brotherhood

*snorts dinner out nose*

*applause*

[Now that the eclipse has started, you'd think they'd evacuate Argos, but there's eleventy thousand teenage girls rioting in front of the Odeon yelling something about a marble Adonis, I don't even know.]

BWA!

Wow that was amazing! I was viewing this entry not even two hours ago and there was only one comment at that time. Then I come back and there's a HUNDRED more! You are awesome Cleo.

Is Zeus standing on a box in that one picture? And Ralph Fiennes looks like Peter Stormare...

All I know is, Liam Neeson is TALL. I don't know if they're standing on the steps (they could be), or if Ralph Fiennes is just hunched over (he was a good bit) or something.

Everything was brilliant! I appreciate that you didn't try to fun up the already hilarious flute scene.

DRACO: OKAY, LISTEN UP! Anything we're gonna need on this godsforsaken trip, you gotta pack it NOW. Swords, spears, shields, spare sandals, sixpack-shaped armor, all of it--okay, sure, Chatty Cathy can come. Yeah, I guess we have room for two comic relief guys you found in the street. No, leave the Prophet of Crazy here, he gives me the wig. No, I don't think you need to bring your Snuggie, we're going into THE DESERT. NO, I DON'T THINK THERE WILL BE WIFI FOR YOUR KINDLE--

The whole thing was lolsome, but this? I died of gigglesnort.

Maybe he made it out of Edward Cullen!

Oh, let's hope so.

That was brilliant. Just how do you write this stuff! I laughed until I cried. I just saw this stinker of a movie, so this made my evening! Thank you!

Your description of Hadesmort almost makes me want to see this movie (although the disrespect to poor Bubo hurts my inner 9-year-old.) And "I love you, Not-Son, and I will love you for all five minutes of the rest of my life" made me sporfle. As did "But... he's got more chemistry with the ageless chick, and all your scenes with him got cut." Poor Andromeda! Getting blown off for Perseus' improbably immortal cow-sister!

SOME REDSKIRT: You know, I'm really excited about going on a legendary adventure. I've always wanted to fight in a bunch of action scenes, get some really good closeups, come up with a catchphrase or something, maybe even end up with the princess's slightly less attractive handmaiden...

EUSEBIOS: Oh... man, I hate to break it to you, but...

IXAS: ... shhhhh. Let him dream.

Hee, I love it when the characters in your recaps are genre savvy.

Also hilarious:
MEDUSA: *POUT*

MEDUSA'S HAIR: *pout pout pout pout pout*

I'm still trying to figure out why the filmmakers gave us Medusa's sad backstory and then followed it with "Right, let's kill the bitch!" Like, wow, editing FAIL.

I'm pretty sure the '09 version will be remembered, at best, as a footnote to Harryhausen's victory lap. It lacks the '81 version's whimsy, especially the depiction of the Olympians as a squabbling family with Aphrodite and Thetis eyerolling at Zeus's shenanigans and Athena being all "HAIL NO YOUR BASTARD CAN'T HAVE MY OWL." On the other hand, I didn't miss the old version's recycled footage (especially the release of the Kraken, with identical reaction shots of Poseidon both times), or Perseus's habit of repeating dialogue ("The helmet will make you invisible!" "Invisible?" "Invisible"), so I grudgingly give the remake some props.

AHHH THIS IS AWESOME! I still wish the Argosians kept the Kraken as the giantest, fugliest, most awesome lawn ornament, but heeeee!!! This sums up exactly why I love this movie. XDDDD

Eeeheehee! So much funny!

HADES: Are we clashing yet? Is this clashing?

ZEUS: Well, technically, our parents were the titans, but your hellrobes don't go too well with my sparkle armor, so maybe that counts.


That (with accompanying picture) killed me. Heh.

P.S. Wow, Zeus's armor is actually, physically going, *ting* isn't it? That's the sparkliest armor ever.

P.P.S. Stealth Twilight jokes FTW. HEEE.

[Massive suckered tentacles slither up the halls of Olympus, and a vortex of fangs barfs up a pirate hat.]
