Don't they only also have this in 3D so you have to pay the extra money?
I don't understand why they remade it, the original was perfectly good. Why fix what isn't broken?

Lol I saw the original in the theater...
What they don't seem to understand is that there are multiple factors that make a movie successful and many cannot be reproduced.

I'm gonna go ahead and disagree with everyone in here; I understand everyone has different opinions and I don't think you should all like it because I liked it (i.e. I don't want to argue about it), but I thought it was good. Also, I saw it in 2D for $7.
The acting was a little weak, but who cares; it's a bunch of mythological beings getting pissed off at each other and killing a bunch of crap. The chick is hot, the dudes are cool, and Zeus is ****ing Liam Neeson. I turned my brain back to 10th-grade-level and really enjoyed it.
If you just watch it as a shiny and action-filled flick, then I think it's pretty good. It has it's flaws, but it didn't suck.
Oh, and I really sincerely appreciated the depiction of the soldiers (and the main character) as mostly medium-sized individuals -- none of the bull**** bodybuilder Spartan mega-men. That gets real old real fast. It didn't really impact my opinion of the movie, but I appreciated the decision.
It's a fun movie; and the characters aren't blue cat people.

Yeah everything I've read on this has said it's pretty mediocre. It'll be a Red Box or a download for me. Everything I've heard about the 3D is atrocious as well, and everyone recommends to see it in 2D if you absolutely have to. They didn't actually shoot the movie in 3D (using 3D cameras), they just touched it up afterwards for the effect which generally produces shoddy 3D.

They also say that outside of techs who work in the 3d biz you can not truely tell if a movie was converted to 3d or shot in 3d.

That's probably true. In this case though, everything I've read about Clash of the Titans says the 3D effects are pretty bad and that you're better off watching it in 2D.

Honestly, just wait till it comes out on DVD. It is action packed, but the movie itself kind of flows like a made for TV movie. Like, first we'll go here, then here, finally we'll end up here, but first let's stop here. I think there's too much going on to fit the entire story in 110 minutes. On top of that, Sam Worthington is going to be THAT guy that will save an entire people from utter destruction. He was alright in Terminator Salvation, pretty good in Avatar, but somehow I feel that his character in Clash of the Titans doesn't fit him. I think they should have chosen someone else, don't know who it would be, but definitely someone else. The CG isn't as good in this one either. The Medusa could have been better. I like James Cameron's CG team in Avatar. That was pretty good.

the 3d was ****ing stupid. nothing flying out of the screen so whats the point. that includes avatar if your movie is in 3d at least take advantage of it. instead i just get a headache from wearing the annoying ****ing glasses and the movie is 25% darker than it should be. really worth an extra $6

Well there's "normal" 3D you pay like $12 for and you get those flimsy movie glasses, which looks more like uber HD to me and then there's IMAX 3D for like $20-$25 and they come with those thick plastic glasses that cover your entire face. The quality of dimensional depth is actually quite noticeable from 3D and IMAX 3D, anyway, I was hoping CLASH would be good, sad to hear the review.

It's just like trying to recast The Goonies! It can't be done!

Agreed. 3D movies in IMAX, when one considers the whole cinematic experience, are really quite amazing.
