I'm slightly annoyed at some of the reviews, why moan and give this film a low rating because of the 3D, if you choose to watch it in 3D that's you're decision but don't rate the film one star because you're 3D experience was rubbish, rate it on acting overall feel and plot.
I don't think its fare comparing this to the older version either, I think we have come along way since plaster scene monsters, it would be like comparing David Bowie's labyrinth with Pans labyrinth both grate films but entirely different, think of it as a whole new film and then review it.
I really like the old version and I do have a digitally enhanced version, but I also will be adding the new Blu-ray film, it's a shame that a lot of diehard classics fans won't accept the way films are changing now and criticize anything they can.
The story was told better in the original version and shows Ray Harryhausen special effects at his best. I did still enjoy this version and will be getting it on blu-ray when in comes out later this year.
Considering this dvd hasn't even been released yet there shouldn't be any reviews allowed at all! I imagine most people are writing reviews about the movie hence all the 3D comments.
You are right, films are changing in that flashy effects are being used as a substitute for a good story. Of course this movie is going to be compared to the earlier version - it is a remake. I've enjoyed some remakes that some might consider sacrilegious (The Italian Job, for instance, which I thought was great), but Clash of the Titans 2010 did nothing other than take a good yarn based on Greek myth and turned it into a formulaic, incoherent revenge film that had none of the grandeur of the original - better effects or not. I loathed this film and won't be buying it on DVD or Bluray.
I hate Amazon. I want to know what is on the disc - features languages and extras, but Amazon never tell us anything useful like that. They seem to expect us to already know everything about the items we're thinking about buying. Useless! If I want a review of a film then I'll look it up on IMDB or Wikipedia.
