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 )

ZEUS: Son, that's really a bit too close to bestiality for me.




Favorite part, especially since I had to study Roman/Greek mythology in Latin class in high school.

Awesome--loved the whole thing!

This movie needed less Perseus moaning and more Gods and larger-than-life Liam Neeson and less creeper Hades... why is Hades always the bad guy?! :"(

Needless to say, this is awesome and you are a genius. HADESMORT. ♥

WITCH TWO: good luck with that is how I felt through the entire movie!

I had no intention of seeing this movie and now have been *greatly* amused by it while still having no intention to see it. (Sorry. If the original had Bubo the Mechanical Owl, it also had Burgess Meredith and the pretty- full pantheon and a Pegasus that could have shown up in Greece, instead of Friesland. This remake may not have been, strictly speaking, necessary. In my opinion.)

It's so good to see you back writing again. I haven't read through all of it, but what I have read is hilarious as ever. My husband's bound to be happy his favorite Cleoism makes an appearance (he's been a fan of "OM NOM NOM" since Cloverfield).

Me personally, I still love the "Brothers intro" to 300, since I use that scene to describe what you do with Movies in 15 Minutes to other peeps so they can get bit by the bug (but they usually just satisfy that by borrowing my copy of THE BOOK, so meh).

The Happening in 15 Minutes Movie

Hi! I just wanted to let you know that my friend and I created a film version of The Happening in 15 Minutes. You can watch it on YouTube. I hope you like it!

*points to icon*

I give you Stabby Leap in miniskirt as you so brilliantly put it because that man is the only reason I went to see that movie.

I'm glad I'd left my brain at home when I went, though. Don't need a brain for eye candy. And definitely didn't need a brain for that movie, after all, the guys who wrote it didn't use their.

I'm going to have to re-read this parody goodness again before I go to bed because I hadn't laughed so hard in a long time and I needed it today.

*goes back to reading your book she found at the public library in her small town in New Zealand*

I was just linked here by someone. This is awesome.

Aww, I first thought you were going to summarize the old Clash of the Titans, with the hilarious stop-motion monsters. The new one is not nearly as fun.

I cracked up at the 'GIANT LORD HADESMORT' part xD
nthdraft From: nthdraft Date: August 2nd, 2010 08:15 pm (UTC) (Link)
you know I avoided this POS because for all the Harry Hamlin/Burgess Meredith/Sir Fricking Lawrence Olivier narmy bad-goodiness of the original (and the hawt slashiness of Hamelin and Tim Piggot Smith as that One Guy Who Dies by Scorpion), it was FUN dammit. Still is.

I am so glad I didn't see this now. I think I would have walked out with Athena XD

So, I'm finally getting around to actually watching this, and for the first time in the history of EVER, I have to disagree with your portrayal of characters.

The Djinn, you called them Jawas with the driftwood and such... NO. They are human form TRANSFORMERS! I swear I even heard one of them make the transforming noise. *nod*

Can I make a M15M suggestion? Prince of Persia. loved that movie!
cleolinda From: cleolinda Date: August 22nd, 2010 05:15 pm (UTC) (Link)
Yeah, it was pretty fun. I probably won't be doing another until Deathly Hallows, though. I'm working on two books at the moment.

Thank you! You made this movie less painful :D

Really, I wanted to like it, but got through a full 6 minutes before my brain was screaming "ANCIENT GREEKS DO NOT WORK THAT WAY" so loud I had to turn it off. I didn't even make it to the Saint Seiya armors! Greek mythology geek sadface.

Hades (The Place)


Also, your descriptions of the acton scenes make me want to watch it! Maybe I'll just skip all the bits when they talk...

Totally late on the bandwagon 'cause I only saw the movie like yesterday, but I've been wanting to watch it ever since you posted the parody.

Lol irl at Queen Atia of the Julii. MTE when I saw her xD

Ohh this was SO FUNNY! I just love your m15ms. I actually saw this movie in theaters like seven months ago or whenever it was out, but just got around to reading it now. Love it so hard! <3

"Perseus pops up out of the boss scorpion like a stripper out of the worst birthday cake ever."
"They've got, like, air conditioner vents instead of faces, and they think Eusebios looks really, really tasty. I cannot disprove this hypothesis."
*twitches a few times*
"Well, technically, our parents were the titans, but your hellrobes don't go too well with my sparkle armor, so maybe that counts."
Yes. Yes it does.

IO: Look! Zeus left you all these pega... su... ses... si... HE LEFT YOU A BUNCH OF HORSYBIRDS.

I know it's part of the joke, but there is actually a word for it: pterippus. Pterippi for plural.

*The More You Know rainbow*

I remember in the theater when the girl said to perseus that he was the "best of both" some guy shouted out "should have called him hovis!" - nearly died of laughter lol

Release the Kraken! The movie is imaginative and entertaining too.
