Clash of the Titans – 2010 (Blu-ray Review)

After recently suffering through the original 1981 Clash of the Titans on Blu-ray (see review here), my apprehension towards this 2010 remake was quickly relinquished after only the first ten minutes into my theatrical press screening.  I was pleasantly surprised, instantly enchanted and obsessively engrossed within the mythical fantasy world brought to life using the […]

Blu-ray Battles with the ‘Clash of the Titans’

The Clash of the Titans will make its High-Definition debut this July.  That’s a long to time to wait to see Gemma Arterton again, but I’m sure I’ll live.  Speaking of Gemma, it gives me a reason to post yet another picture of her on the site.  Yea!  Of course, Clash of Titans also stars […]

Clash of the Titans Not So Titanic

When I discovered late last year that one of my favorite childhood movies was going to be remade, I was jittery with excitement.  Clash of the Titans was a film I enjoyed time and again, but notice I said ‘was’.  Let me preface this; Star Wars is a movie that used, for its time, cutting-edge […]

It’s Fun to Watch Titans Clash

How do you tell who the hero is in Clash of the Titans?  He’s the one with the buzz-cut.  Sam Worthington of Avatar fame dons the role of Perseus, son of Zeus himself, played by Liam Neeson (who has now been a jedi, a martial arts master, and the trainer of Batman for goodness sake) […]

Avatar Blu-ray = 40th Anniversary of Earth Day

Summertime arrives early this year for me with last year’s blockbuster film coming to Blu-ray this April.  Actually, isn’t it the biggest grossing film of all time?  Well anyway, the record breaking film needs no introduction.  James Cameron’s Avatar arrives on the Blu-ray/DVD retail shelves of planet Earth everywhere on April 22nd.  If that day doesn’t […]

‘Avatar’ in 3D Stunning, But Tedious

Finally the release date for Avatar arrived.  The street lamp-hung signs at July’s Comic-Con now fulfilled their advertising destiny.  The autumn-released teaser trailers and strategically placed glimpses were no longer needed as the real deal had landed.  Rumors had swirled for months as to how much the film cost.  Some said it was the first […]

“My Heart Will Go On” with Avatar

For nearly three hours tonight I sat in the movie theater and completely forgot about all of my troubles, all of my worries and nothing else even mattered to me in the world except the universe James Cameron masterfully created in Avatar.  I even forgot I was part of the human race as I sat […]
