'Wrath of the Titans' mini review - Far better than 'Clash of the Titans'

I was not a fan of the 2010 remake of Clash of the Titans. It lacked character and failed to deliver on its epic action premise. Wrath of the Titans is still not a smart film — it mostly revolves around Ares, Hades, and Zues having family fights — but this time it delivers on its epic fantasy adventure promise. Perseus (Sam Worthington), the half-son of Zeus, has to go on a big quest to stop Hades and Ares from unleashing the massive Kronos, the father of Zues and Hades who just so happens to be about 3 or 4 times the size of Godzilla. Perseus has some awesome encounters with Titans, cyclops giants, Minotaurs, and two-headed dragon beasts.

'Jack the Giant Killer' follows the trend of taking old stories to new heights

Even before watching the trailer for Jack the Giant Killer, I had a feeling I knew what I was in for. The title easily gave it away, but the change isn’t unexpected. After all, “Jack and the Beanstalk” doesn’t exactly pack as big of a punch as Jack the Giant Killer. While it’s not another Snow White, it is another fairytale remake, which I’ve been a bit sceptical about lately. That’s not to say that every remake is or isn’t doing it right, but I’m starting to warm-up to all these revamped films. I’ll be honest—I rather like seeing the stories we’re so familiar with spiced up with new technology or told with an interesting twist.

Everyone is all frowns in these new Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows photos

If we didn't already understand the dark tone of the Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows from its super serious, LOTR-ish trailer or extended featurette, the frowns in these promotional photos will certainly do the trick. You'd think anyone could muster up a smile for a photo, at least, but no. At Hogwarts, it seems, brooding is the name of the game.

These are the first photos I've seen of several characters appearing in the new film, and it's always exciting to see Bill Nighy. I wonder if he's a vampire. The actors and characters names are labeled below, though I apologize to Potter-ites in advance if I screw them up. Thanks To Spoiler TV (via Collider) for the pics.

Weekend Preview - It's 2012 or PIRATE RADIO for you...

What a weekend. Apparently no one wants to face the apocalypse head-to-head because the only competition for 2012 is Pirate Radio and it's in about a third of the theaters. What the hell happened to John Cusack's career, anyway? If I remember right, it was respectable at one time, but I can't remember a good film he's been in since Identity and Runaway Jury in 2003. Maybe he thinks the world is ending in two years.
