If ever a movie didn't cry out for a re-make it was Clash of the Titans. The original wasn't necessarily good, but it was beloved by a distinct sliver of the populace. They will now hate this re-make, while those new to it will think the movie is just stupid. Which it is. A last-minute 3-D conversion only adds to its mediocrity. At least, it's not the worst movie of the weekend. That is surely The Last Song. Miley Cyrus is, of course, grotesque in everything. My question is this -- what's a solid actor like Greg Kinnear doing in this shit?

Perhaps only Woody Allen is as prolific as Tyler Perry. That is the only similarity between the two. The latter's newest film, Tyler Perry's Why Did I Get Married Too may as well have been a movie-of-the-week that no one watched. And it's a sequel? What burning questions were left unanswered by the first? As I wrote a few days ago, it was insane that Sandra Bullock beat out Carey Mulligan for this year's Best Actress Oscar. If you loved An Education, check out The Greatest and marvel at Ms. Mulligan's talent and versatility.
