A Man and His Movies

Pull out the popcorn: Highly anticipated summer blockbusters coming soon

Anticipation can be a tricky thing.
It’s very hard to control but anticipate too much and the let-down can be tremendous.
Just look at the movies coming out this summer: Sure, there are some you should avoid like the plague (please don’t see “Twilight: Eclipse”) but it’s hard not to expect the best from some of the bigger blockbusters.

Release the Kraken on ‘Titans’ for poor story and script

Greek mythos has always taken a place in pop culture, whether it is with video games like the “God of War” series or movies such as the recently released “Clash of the Titans.”

There is a good reason for this; Greek mythology is incredibly interesting. Its stories often intertwine gods and humans, and have the moody gods dangle their human puppets to provide for their every whim.

“Titans” is a remake of the original 1981 film, which is mostly known for the Ray Harryhausen special effects that look very cheap by today’s standards.
