The Jizt: Clash of the Titans

In this fast-paced world of blogging, tweeting and fly-by-night film voyeurism, sometimes one doesn't have the time to give a film proper treatment. More importantly, others do not always have the time to read it. Sometimes you just have to take it around back and squeeze one out in 1-2-3 quick licks.

Think of
The Jizt as the wham, bam, thank you ma'am of reviews.

Clash of the Titans

Release: 04.02.10
Rated PG-13
1 hour, 46 minutes


Sam Worthington (Avatar), Ralph Fiennes (Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire), Gemma Arterton (Quantum of Solace)

The Build-up: Fisherman and bastard son of Zeus, Perseus, is called upon by the people of Argos to stop Hades from unleashing his ultimate wrath upon them; the Kraken.

The Blurt-out: Director Louis Letterier's knack for thrilling action sequences and spanky special effects almost keeps audiences from wondering when Hades's poorly attached scalp piece will detach completely.

The Jizt: Had the salvation of Argos lain not in the physicality of their champion, but in his acting ability, the populace would have been shit out of luck.

"Like we told ya kid, playing with the Jizt will put your eye out!"

  1. I was actually going to break my streak of not going to the movies (since last August - eesh) for this one, and then I started reading all this stuff about how amazingly uncharismatic ol' Sam W is. The original CotT may have been cheesy but at last Harry Hamlin was a little charming. Maybe I'll get into a theater for Iron Man 2.

  2. @film-book: good call.

    @Friend Mouse: Iron man 2 is one of my Top 5 summer movies. Though I haven't seen it, I'm fairly confident it will be worth going to the theater to see it.

  3. Nice info...Thanks for sharing, love this movie much
