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 )

I'm a little sad that you didn't go into the Io connundrum :( It kept us entertained for the entire movie :P

Io introduces herself

*whispers to SO*: Wow, I must misremember my Greek history more than I thought. I thought Io was a cow.

*SO, loudly*: SHE WAS!

It goes on that not only was she a cow, she was turned into a cow by Hera for being seduced by Zeus, and her father's name was coopted to be Angry King Not-Dad's name when they mention it. So the end of the movie is incredibly interesting:

*Zeus*: So, here, I give you back your cow-half-sister. Don't worry, I already hit that, you're in for a treat.

I am ded of laff. I still cannot believe they put Liam Neeson in sparkle armour. I wonder if they paid Stef a royalty for that bullshit?

Stealth Twilight joke! Because seriously, I really was sitting there like, she watched him WASH UP ON THE BEACH as a baby, and followed him around all his life, apparently, and now she's all into that? UM NO.

I really was not sure how many people would get a Jethro Tull reference, but what the hell, go for the gusto. There really IS a funny bit involving a flute in the movie, I'm not making that up.

Wow. I am even more pleased that I did not see this now, because the filmmakers' handle on the Greek myths just gets worse and worse the more I hear about it. And it's not like the original film was that faithful to begin with.

I'm especially puzzled by how they handled Pegasus. If they were so keen on having a winged horsey seem bad-ass and Pegasus wouldn't even become relevant until after Perseus slew Medusa--why didn't they just keep Pegasus's origin from the original myths, where he sprung from Medusa's blood?

Excellent job. I don't even think I can name a favorite bit because it was all hilarious.

I was on the phone with a friend of mine who loves Greek mythology, and I rattled off the whole plot to her, and her head nearly exploded, it was kind of beautiful. If you are really into mythology, this will pain you. I don't remember it all as well as I used to, but even I was sitting there like, "Io, WTF?"

PERSEUS: No, but you put me in front of that kraken, I can fish the shit out of it.

ROFL!!! LOVE this parody! I actually really liked the movie too, but as always, your parodies trump all. :D

I died. Right there. MUST see this movie, now. I wasn't going to, but if this scene is actually there, then so am I!

It's like 15 seconds, if that, but I died laughing. As did like half my theatre.

I couldn't resist.

Yay! I still don't have decent photo editing programs on my new computer yet, so I can't currently make icons.

Aw, thanks.

Well...that made me feel WAY better about wasting the money to go see that movie...because...god...GOD. I didn't think they could really manage to make it much worse than the original, but MY GOD they destroyed Athena's part and added THE COW LADY?!

And since when did Popo rape Medusa? I don't recall it being forced--Athena was not the type of Goddess to punish a rape victim. Also! Perseus...now the lamest Greek ever. Humility? Not a positive trait in a hero of Greek Mythology. He's supposed to strut around and demand his riches and build Mycenae!

...who's gonna build Mycenae now? Crap.

Meanwhile, Hades got a bad rap AND stole Poseidon's Kraken. Lame.

You know, I genuinely don't get why the god of the underworld would have a sea monster. That just doesn't even make sense.

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*

BRB, lol'ing forever.
