Clash of the Titans
« on: March 14, 2010, 12:22:52 PM »
Not the old film, but the new one. Because I haven't seen it yet....I don't even think it's come OUT yet...but I already know this is going to be one of the worst remakes of all time. I'm a very, very big freak when it comes to Greek mythology, and I am sad that they're going to take this great, horrible classic film and make into just a horrible remake. No great, and no good. Just horrible.

I'm sure it will make great riffing fodder. I hold out hope that it will be fun. I don't really care about fealty to the mythology, given that it was just weird stories they made up. As far as I'm concerned, it's an excuse to get more monsters onscreen. Which I am all for. As long as the story isn't insultingly stupid (a la Bayformers and Pirates of the Caribbean 3). I also hope there isn't a shoehorned in, unnecessary love interest.

I don't know what makes me such a fan of Greek mythology. I think it's just...the way the stories played out, and the time of the Greeks. Everyone wants to go back to a certain point in time, and mine's ancient Greece.  ;D

I just know it'll be a bunch of actors surrounded by green screen and special effects. And of course there'll be a love interest in it. Otherwise, the "general public" won't have anything to latch onto to like about it. Heh.

I'm going to give the film a chance, plot wise.

Have to say that from what I've seen I think they made some really bad choices effects wise.  The Gorgon is boring, the Kraken looks like the Cloverfield monster with a couple extra limbs....

I just want to know why they felt it necessary to make Pegasus a black horse and not the traditional white horse. Did Pegs all of a sudden just decide to go Goth?

Pegasus should have zebra stripes.  :o

Whoa. I think I just painted a glam metal album cover in my mind.

Probaly for the same reason Francis Cleyn did

Or Odilion Redon did

beware, beautiful but huge.

Or why this unnamed Ethiopian artist decided to depict Pegasus as a bay
Spoiler (click to show/hide)

Because he's a fictional character and can be depicted how the creator of a work sees fit.

Those images are weird. They don't look anything like Pegasus at all. ???

Well, that last one's a bit dragonish, but how can a horse with wings not look like Pegasus?

Again

There, was that so hard?
Aww but then you can see the majesty of the brushstrokes. ;)

And I say bollocks to that. What? Does a white horse not match up with the dark, edgy, post modern approach to updating things? Thanks to the Tristar Logo everybody knows the accepted look of said fictional character. Would you put a guy in a pink tutu, ski mask and cape then call him Batman? A white, winged horse is what Pegasus the character has traditionally been depicted as consistently. My guess is that black is an easier color for the novice animators to work with and shade than white. That's the only explanation I can see for such an idiotic change.

Wow are you ever a tad too intense over what is a simple ascetic choice. You might want to calm down there because, and this is the third time since it remains the truth:
he's a fictional character and can be depicted how the creator of a work sees fit.

This is you're issue with Medusa all over again: You say, oh wow the depiction isn't the traditional one" and then I go and show you examples from history showing that the depiction isn't as set as you think it to be. You really have a very odd comncept of exactly what the traditions for dections of some characters are.

But let's take your Batman analogy:





All Batman. The bat has been presented in mayny different ways and why? Because
he's a fictional character and can be depicted how the creator of a work sees fit.

Except with Batman there is a proprietorial element to the character, Pegasus is public domain so to speak.

Also, unless you're from the commonwealth, don't use bollocks, it just sounds forced. :)
