Wrath of the Titans: Feel the Wrath

This entry was posted in Action, Adventure, DVD, Videos & Movies, Epics, Fantasy by Snowfoxx on

When they released the remake of Clash of the Titanss, I was really glad. I had seen the original movie in 1981, and even though in its own day, it was epic, I knew the remake would be far superior, just at the fact that Avatar’s Sam Worthington would be much better as Perseus than Harry Hamlin had been thirty years earlier. I was very happy with the outcome. Another thing that was lacking in the original was what brings us to Musings today, a sequel.

In this story, Perseus (Sam Worthington) has married not Princess Andromeda (Rosamunde Pike), but the demi-goddess, Io. Demi-divines are still mortal, and Io has passed on. Perseus is raising his son, Helius (John Bell) alone and irking out a living as a simple fisherman, wanting to leave the gods of Olympus behind him. Helius is his reason for just about everything now, since the boy is all he has, and he loves him dearly. In this time, since his defeat of the Kraken, people have become somewhat atheistic, and are no longer praying to the gods for pretty much of anything. The gods are aging, and losing the power, because it is worship that the fuel on which they use to survive.

Battleship (2012) The Battle for Earth Begins at Sea

In 2005 we found a world that could sustain life. In 2006 we tried to contact them. In 2012 they came to visit us. That is the basic setup for this film that is based off an old classic game called BATTLESHIP. In the game you are not able to see the opponents board but you both have the same number of assets in play. Each turn the player will select a point on a grid to see if they hit a ship or not. If they do hit they insert a red peg into that point to signify a hit. It takes several pegs to totally sink a battle ship. The movie, while a science fiction film, does follow that premise in how the battles are fought. The big difference is that when a ship is sunk you get to see spectacular explosions that send bits and pieces of ships all over the ocean. They are massive explosions and actually proportional to the rounds and charges that are being used. We even get to see a real battleship from times gone past enter the fight to save the day.

Batman Begins

In this film we get to see just how it was that Bruce Wayne becomes the bat that we all know and love, unless you are a criminal that is. We also see just how it is that Gordon becomes Police Commissioner of Gotham City. This is by far one of the best hero beginnings film of Batman to date. This one has a depth that has not been seen before in other films and takes a more serious look at the character and those that are around him. We also get to see just how much Alfred Pennyworth (Michael Caine) actually loved his charge. This one film helped to reboot the franchise that many thought not possible.

Riverdance Live From New York City

Skirts, Legs, Tights Oh My! Riverdance tours the world and makes videos of the very best of their productions and the one that they recorded at Radio City Music Hall in New Your City is one of their best and one of their best DVDs. There is nothing that can be said wrong about this production except that they should have changed the taps on the Flamenco dancer (Maria Pages)’s shoes or add more wood to the sounding stage. She was attacking the floor to try and get some sound. Later in the show it does seem that they either gave her new shoes or added more mettle taps so that they could be heard properly. Seriously, that was the only problem with the show that I could see.

Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace

This entry was posted in Action, Adventure, DVD, Videos & Movies, Sci-Fi by Cleave on

A truly enjoyable high action film with great comedic laughs along the way. The Phantom Menace is the start of the story for Star Wars, even if it is not the first one of the films that was made. The Jedi are troubled, the Senate is bickering and one small planet is besieged and almost no one cares.

Qui-Gon Jinn, played by Liam Neeson and Obi-Wan Kenobi, played by Ewan McGregor have been sent to the blockaded planet of Naboo to negotiate settlement with the Trade Federation. Naboo is a peaceful agrarian planet that exported plasma, grain and art. It was the plasma and the pricing of it that was the reason for the Trade Federations blockade but also influence by a Sith lord by the name of Darth Sidious. The 2 were not able to even start negotiations and were forced to flee to the planet surface so that they could try and get to Queen Amidala / Padmé played by a young Natalie Portman.
