I’ve heard this about Clash of the Titans.

Well, not this, specifically:

Scott and Dan from the “Geek in the City” podcast were sitting next to me [‘me’ being Bobby ‘Fatboy’ Roberts – ed.]  at the screening of Clash of the Titans I caught conducting a brilliant experiment. Scott watched the film normally with the rest of us, while Dan drowned out the soundtrack using an iPod loaded with his favorite metal play-list. Scott saw what the rest of us did: a passionless, pointless exercise in lazy, spoon fed bullshit. However, according to Dan, if you arm yourself with headphones and enough Iron Maiden to make your ears want to fight each other, you get the most epic metal video ever put on film.

…but stuff like it.  Which is annoying.  I didn’t expect anything but crap; but I thought that it’d be reasonable to expect entertainingly stupid crap.  I mean, look at this:

Did they think that we would have been disappointed if it was as goofy as the original? We wanted goofy. Ray Harryhausen’s still alive, you know. Hell, Harryhausen’s still working. And he’s 90.

PS: That Harryhausen flick? VIKINGS ON EAGLES THAT FIGHT NAZIS.

‘Aww, crap. It has giant scorpions in it.’

My first reaction to the Clash of the Titans trailer (via @bdomenech).

They know my weaknesses.

PS: [shrugging] Just because.

And what was wrong with Clash of the Titans?

Apparently Liam Neeson – who, again, did a great job in Taken – is going to be playing Zeus in the remake.  Why we need a remake of Clash of the Titans in the first place in not mentioned; I’m still scratching my head over that.

I mean, come on: that’s some fine stop-motion animation there. And you know that they’re going to CGI the new one, and you know that it’s going to suck, and you know that I just sounded like every other aging geek on the Internet, so I’ll stop now.
