Clash of the Titans

This one may have just been the victim of the system. The film isn't that horrible, but it was almost certainly subjugated to a wide variety of heavy alterations, including a massive number of reshoots. It was revealed in the wake of the release that tons of footage had been hacked out of the film (possibly by the studio), and the major, last-minute reshoots significantly altered entire plot points, leaving for a very, very messy story. Big-name actors (like Danny Huston as Poseidon) were cast in the film, only to never speak a word, as over two-thirds of the Gods plot was ditched at the last minute. Even Sam Worthington's romantic interest (Gemma Arterton) was switched from the Andromeda character during the reshoot phase, meaning that an entire subplot was added to the film with only a couple of scenes worth of plot to make it convincing. Clash of the Titans is the new benchmark for why altering entire character arcs and motivations at the last minute is never a good idea.

    Who the heck wrote this article? It says “Gus Van Sant’s PSYCHO is fine” You gotta be kidding me! It might be the most terribly miscast film in Hollywood history! What a piece of junk!

    I have great affection for the original Clash of the Titans, but I actually prefer the remake (Just my opinion, folks.) I think the worst remakes are usually horror films: Psycho, The Wicker Man, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, The Evil Dead, Halloween, Dawn of the Dead. Those remakes were just dire.

    Yes I’m afraid that new Clash of the Titans is far far worse than the original.
