Clash of the Titans

At the suggestion of N° 2 sprog, we saw Clash of the Titans this evening, a fun romp through Greek mythology. The film is loosely based around the story of Perseus, and so we see a lot of Zeus and Hades and the Kraken (why do all cinematic monster’s mouths obligatorily look like the Alien?). At worst, such films are a lazy way to catch up on the classics, but maybe a more accessible one for younger generations. Indeed, it is somehow reassuring that, amid all the high-tech innovations of Avatar and the like, today’s cinema industry should still return to the ancient classics for a cracking plot.
