American Reunion
5 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes

If you like the other movies in the Pie series you will probably enjoy this one to some degree. Nothing has changed much since we last left the crew, a couple are married, some have good jobs, and one character never grew up.

This movie is the same as the others, some lessons are learned, some akward sex scenes insue, and a mom is given some loving.

As a fan it was nice seeing all the characters come back for one last (possibly) romp. Though the movie did feel slow in places and some of the jokes are stale. I would have liked to have seen this movie change things up a bit but it sticks to the formula which was a shame, it is okay to take a risk now and then to keeps things fresh. At the end of the day it made me laugh enough to enjoy it but not love it.

Wrath of the Titans
5 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Why was this movie made? Was there a great clamoring for it from the masses after the mess that was the first? The only reason I can think for this movie being made was to hopefully get some money out of people.

You know the plot an ancient evil is on the rise and a hero must stand. In order to kill said evil though the hero needs a specific weapon, in this case all of the God wielded weapons such as Zeus's lightning staff, Hades's pitchfork and so on. It has been at least 10 years since our hero, Persius (Sam Worthington), has wielded his magic sword given to him by his father Zeus (Liam Nesson). Zeus is betrayed once again by Hades (Ralph Fienes), but this time to bring Kronos to life. Kronos being father of all the gods and a massive prick, also he is a titan.

Judging by the movie the screenplay must be one giant ball of exposition with little to no thought into character or dialogue. Everybody acts in a way convenient towards the scene at that particular moment. If there was any interest or passion in making of this movie it does not come through in the cold, money grubbing, finished product.

There were small things I enjoyed about this movie and they were few and far between. I enjoyed Bill Nighy as an over the top former god who lives as a recluse. I enjoyed watching two gods teaming up to kick some ass at the end. Neither of these things take up much screen time though.

This movie feels like a remake of the movie it is supposed to be a sequel to. Guy from a small fishing village has life ripped apart by both gods and monsters, then he must go on a quest to rescue someone, then at the end he must fight a gigantic fiend. Tell me am I talking about Clash of the Titans (2010) or Wrath of the Titans(2012)? Spoiler it is both.
