Should we find ourselves looking back at the original Clash of the Titans
through nostalgic, rose-tinted lenses, it pays to remember that Ray Harryhausen’s beloved cinematic swan song wasn’t an immaculate gift from the gods, but rather a flawed would-be fantasy epic with a few admittedly spectacular components. In short, it was an ideal candidate for a remake, despite the fact that some stubborn Harryhausen diehards might have you believe it would be sacrilege to even try. If we haven’t learned that nothing’s sacred by this point, we may as well just bury our heads in the warm beach sands until the inevitable Jaws
remake swims up to bite us on the backs...
