Wrath of the Titans

Postby DanielAWillis » Mon April 16th, 2012, 5:19 pm

I went to see Wrath of the Titans this weekend. It was better than I expected. I found the first movie, Clash of the Titans somewhat lacking, but the sequal was more plot driven. This one dwelved far more into the relationship between fathers and sons. There are four generatoions together in this one.

I've been wanting to see that one. Were there actual Titans in it this time?

So it's a term that we tend not to use in the UK for so late a period. Maybe it's just us.


I was thinking of the lifestyle rather than the precise social status. 'Tenant farmer' would have been more literally exact.

My Future Boyfriend Science fiction romantic comedy. It was silly, but I was bored.

Since I broke my wrist, I've been watching more movies and reading more books. Last week I watched Captain America in prep for the new Avengers movie. Missed it last summer. Surprised me with the sympathetic character development emphasized over the action. Liked it.

Saw The Avengers Friday and was quite satisfied. Directed and co-written by one of my faves, Joss Whedon. Lots of snappy dialog, great action and twisty plot. The superheros spent most of the movie squabbling/fighting among themselves, so comic geeks who want to see Hulk/Ironman, Ironman/Thor, Thor/Hulk, Hulk/Blackwidow, etc. etc. matchups; here's your chance. My only "wince" was watching Manhattan being destroyed (I live in NYC). After 9/11, there seemed to be a short moratorium, but those iconic buildings are just too tempting for film makers. Heads up: there are two bonuses for those who sit through the credits...the traditional sneak preview for the next Marvel movie after the actor list and a funny epilog at the very end.

Watched We Bought a Zoo with hubby Saturday. Charming family movie, less sappy than I thought it would be...although I'm not a fan of "wise children" as characters. No seven-year-old I've ever known is so well-versed in psychology (or even observant) as they portray in the movies. Luckily this one had only small doses of "mini-Yoda" in between the just cute stuff.

I saw "The Avengers" yesterday, but I missed the very funny epilog, what happened?!

Great movie, people laughed and clapped. But I lost some of the dialogue at times when there was audience noise over it, will be getting on DVD.

On the weekend I finally got to see Iron Lady and thought it a very good movie and Meryl did deserve the Oscar. Did it make me sympathetic towards Thatcher? No.

I also watched 'Titanic' and was disppointed and thought it lacked substance. Some of the plot lines were too contrived and lacked reality. It is watchable.

Watched How to Train Your Dragon last night (again). I love everything about it.
