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 )

Hahahaha! Favourite line (and perfect screencap choice):

HADES: Are we clashing yet? Is this clashing?

This film also gains massively in hilarity because there's a rather downmarket chain of superstores called Argos in the UK. Lines like 'ARGOS NEEDS A RULER' make much more sense in this context.

I, for one, will feel completely cheated if there's no scenery-chewing Hades skulking about next time I pop to Argos.

PERSEUS: Hey, weren't you the guy with the crazy eyes in Sherlock Holmes? That was a pretty good movie. I had one that came out around the same time. You might have heard of it--it was, you know, THE BIGGEST MOVIE OF ALL TIME.



(^also describes my feelings on the entirety of the parody. Well done!)

Hilarious and brilliant, as always.

And thank you, thank you, THANK YOU for "redskirt."

Oh, so much to love. The subtle digs at that-overhyped-phenomenon! Bubo! Zeus' bestiality! Jethro's flute solo! Pirate hat!

In conclusion: Totally cousins awesome.

EPIC WIN and I haven't even seen the film yet. I need to, having read this. Favorite line? IO: Look! Zeus left you all these pega... su... ses... si... HE LEFT YOU A BUNCH OF HORSYBIRDS.

Also, I love that somebody caught on to the lack of titans in this clashing of things. And the horse recovery scene sounds like Brego's shining moment in LotR...horse-land shout-outs?

I thought it was awfully nice of JJ Abrams to let the Cloverfield monster come out and play with Perseus. Thoughtful, really. Thank you for this!

I'm so glad someone else thought that.

Jawbacca was the best character in the movie.

Awesome as always!

Bwahhaa, I just saw this today. OH GOD WAS IT STUPID-LONG AND NOT AS GOOD AS THIS RECAP. Argh.

This is just hilarious. You rock :)

"Is this clashing?" YES. I saw the trailer again a few days ago and snorfled at "Titans Will Clash" for this exact reason.

This may just be my love for Greek mythology speaking, but...new favorite M15M, for sure! I lost it after the first "Mount Olympus" scene. Your explanation for Thetis' absence was awesome.

Also, the scene with the (I'd say it was pegasi) "horsybirds" was hilarious. I think Badass the Destroyer is BFFs with Trodgor. Plus, you win at life for managing to reference Star Trek (redskirt! ha!), Star Wars, Pirates, King Arthur, and Avatar all in the same M15M. So much love for this. :)

Plus Harry Potter, Twilight, and LotR refs! Count me impressed.
