Clash of the Titans - A Critique

directors_chairIn the age when movie studios pan the comic book/graphic novel genre for blockbuster  gold and cult classic TV shows and movies are remade in hopes of lighting striking twice, it was probably inevitable that the vintage 80’s stop-motion animation rich film Clash of the Titans would get today’s Hollywood treatment.

Movie Title: Clash of Titans

Studio: Warner Bros.

Director: Louis Leterrier

Cast: Sam Worthington, Liam Neeson, Ralph Fiennes, Gemma Arterton

Plot: The mortal son of the god Zeus embarks on a perilous journey to stop the underworld and its minions from spreading their evil to Earth as well as the heavens.

Rating: Rated PG-13 for fantasy action violence, some frightening images and brief sensuality

Bottom Line: **.5/***** While the special effects dress this remake into something grand - newer and cooler doesn’t mean better.

Running With Another Man's Number

Running_with_another_mans_number1How many times have we found ourselves borrowing something from someone.  Some of the things we borrow we don’t even need. Still there are something’s we need just for the moment. We borrow ideas, looks, even our behaviors are  borrowed.

The truth is, there really is nothing new under the sun. People are making thousands, no millions of dollars everyday by borrowing something that was here long before they were ever considered. Nothing I write here is original, nothing you read here is original, most of the time it is a perspective. Everything that is has already been and all that will be was once here before.

  You see, what I have come to realize is that with all the technology  that we have today, there is still nothing that can compare to the human body. We are a complex piece of work. We are the only thing that is original, one of a kind. There never was and never will be another copy of you. Yet we spend much of our time in life trying to be like someone else. That is rather ludicrous if you think about it, here we are trying to duplicate something that was duplicated from something else duplicated, and so on. Have you ever stopped to consider, "Why you are so unique, so different, so special?"
