A bit of counter programming at the cinema this weekend as the amped up remake of a classic takes on the latest sap fest from Nicholas Sparks.
Clash of the Titans
Starring: Sam Worthington, Liam Neeson, Ralph Fiennes, Gemma Arterton
Directed by: Louis Letterier
Plot: Greek warrior Perseus must lead a mission to defeat Hades, who wants to take over Olympus and the world.
Rotten Tomatoes Freshness: 34%
Critic Consensus: “An obviously affectionate remake of the 1981 original, Louis Leterrier’s Clash of the Titans doesn’t offer enough visual thrills to offset the deficiencies of its script.”
The Last Song
Starring: Miley Cyrus, Greg Kinnear, Kelly Preston, Bobby Coleman
Directed by: Julie Ann Robinson
Plot: A teenager has to spend the summer with her estranged father in a small beach town.
RT Freshness: 12%
Critic Consensus: “As shamelessly manipulative as any Nicholas Sparks production, The Last Song is done no favors by its miscast and overmatched star, Miley Cyrus.”
I’m like the J. Jonah Jameson of Everything Action, writing and editing and constantly demanding pictures of Spider-Man.
