This week, the Motor City Machine Gun duo of Chris Sabin and Alex Shelley blog a review of the Clash of the Titans 3D and the culinary delights of traveling the world as a wrestler.
So I decided to head out to the movies before heading out on the road to Orlando this past Sunday night. Movie of choice: Clash of the Titans 3D.
When trying to decide what to see, this looked the most appealing for one reason, 3D. 3D seems to be the big thing in visual media lately. 3D movies are more abundant than ever and even some companies have 3D TV's now, because I know when I like to sit back and relax at home I want to wear uncomfortable glasses and eventually have a headache. But in small doses, and the right kind of dose, 3D does kick ass. Case and point-Avatar. Avatar was one of the most visually appealing movies I've ever seen. I've heard complaints about the story, contradictions with certain characters, but everyone seems to unanimously agree it was fun to watch. If this is what today's' 3D is going to be like, I'm down.
So I see Clash of the Titans 3D and I honestly forgot I was even watching a 3D movie, other than the fact I was wearing glasses. There was nothing that the 3D effect really added to the movie, and at times some scenes looked to be still in the 2nd dimension, which made me resent the glasses I was wearing even more. It just didn't seem to be made for 3D like Avatar was, and I could tell. Overall though I enjoyed the movie and recommend it. It was one of the remakes of an old school classic that was done very well, but would have been better in the classic two dimension format, in my opinion.
