Although I did enjoy the story breaks in the game about the classic hero Jason and his crew from Argos, I found the game to be mediocre, and pretty much a waste of time. The graphics looked washed out instead of classical, and it was hard to determine what icon was what under the foggy mists.

As you went along in the game, you would get gifts from the Olympians, but you had to find their gold icons in the grids to activate them. Hera’s icon was a peacock, Athena’s was an owl, Zeus’ was a eagle, and so on. Often, hunting for these golden birds would distract from the match 3 subject matter of the game itself, and the gift you would receive sometimes would no be worth the effort you put into getting it.

Heroes of Hellas

With all movies that have come out over the last few years set using Classical Greek mythos and legends, I was surprised that I had neglected to review Heroes of Hellas when I has already done so with its sequels. In this chain-based match 3 game, we are on assignment by Zeus to gather all the main heroes of legend, from the ill-fated Icarus to the mighty Hercules to hunt down a stolen artifact that has been taken into Hades realm. So, before we can cross the river Styx, we will use these chains of icons to find Icarus, Achilles, Perseus, Odysseus, Jason, Hercules and more to hunt down one really bad dude, King Tantalus.

Real Steel : If you get one shot, make it real

Real-Steal-Movie-PosterAt first glance you would think that this film would be rather boring if you had not seen the trailers but it is anything but boring. You have strong believable visuals with a blending of the real and CGI to give you an experience like none other. You can almost feel the battles that you see on the screen and almost smell the oil and metal that is being pulverized by these metal giants. The film draws you in and leave you in tears at the end as you cheer for the little junk yard ‘bot.

Immortals (2011) The Gods Need a Hero

If you love Greek Mythology and want to see a film about it a la 300 style then you will love this film. If you hated 300 with a passion you MIGHT be able to tolerate this film. Just like 300, by the way this film was done by the same person that did 300, this film is all in black and gold as it it would make the story any better. What is wrong with having some color in a film? If I wanted all black and gold I would watch some old classic 50’s or 60’s film on Greek Mythology and frankly, it would be a better film. If I want to see stop motion photography I would watch a classic film that actually used it instead of a computer enhanced version.

Wrath of the Titans: Feel the Wrath

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.
