* MOVIE REVIEW *

Clash of the Titans
Do you like your movies with heart? Were you a big fan of the original? Then skip this big-budget remake and wait until it's free on NetFlix - maybe.
I think we are all past the point of being awed by amazing special effects only. This movie was all about moving from one set piece to the next. The writers and director understood most people knew the story, so they just rushed from point A to point B to point C, tossing in an assortment of odd changes. The result - a movie I can barely remember now! There was absolutely no heart to this film and nothing memorable.
Don't toss away your hard-earned money - go watch the original cheesy charmer instead! (And personally, I think Harry Hamilton was a sexier Perseus than Sam Worthington!)

After viewing Alex's post yesterday, I thought it was high time I treat the ladies with some sexy men!

Hey!

And I agree with you on Clash of the Titans.

Mason Canyon said...

Love the captions, both are great. And, it's only fair that we ladies get equal time. :)

Glad you liked the caption. I love Miss Kallie's too. I had a kitty named Kali and it's exactly what she would have said.

Thanks for the sexy men. You chose some of my favorites.

good timing for Clash of the Titans tip - was thinking of going tonight.

Laura Marcella said...

Hahaha, love those captions especially the Hobbes reference! I didn't think Titans looked like much other than special effects, so thanks for confirming that for me!

And YUM to the sexy men!

Talli Roland said...

Oh, the photos, the photos... of those men! Um-hmmm. You have just made my day!

L. Diane Wolfe said...

That's right, Mason!

Cool CC! If I'd time, I would've added Kurt Russell, too.

Terry, no! Don't do it!

Laura and Talli, happy to oblidge!

My wife thinks the Transporter is sexy, too. Thanks for the shout out!

Karen Walker said...

Yum - who's number2?

Helen Ginger said...

Both captions were very cute.

Call me crazy, but I think the guy with his shirt on is sexier than the other two. Okay, I'm kidding. Not about the guy with the shirt on, but about calling me crazy.

Turn about and all that! :) Very nice. The captions are great too!

L. Diane Wolfe said...

You're welcome, Marvin!

Karen, the second guy is Christian Bale. He was my inspiration for the character of Jason. And yes - yum!

Helen, that's Hugh Jackman, and I think he's the sexiest, too!

Beverly Stowe McClure said...

Thanks for the tip on the movie.

Great photos.

Congrats to the winners. :)

You always get me with your great and appropriate cat photos and then I'm amazed at how creative your readers are with captions. I can't do captions anymore than I could write headlines when I was a journalist or come up with titles for short stories and novels. Cudos to you and your great captions writers!
Yay! You just made my day with that gorgeous photo of Hugh Jackman. Now I'm inspired to go write a love scene!

L. Diane Wolfe said...

Ggray, happy to do so! Hugh is so sexy.

VR Barkowski said...

Great links, thanks. But those captions are too much! Congrats to the winners!
