Guys Movie Night: Wrath of the Titans

Slightly better, and a smidge less self-serious than 2010's Clash of the Titans.
Sam Worthington has loosened up a bit, and I am really fond of Rosamund Pike (Queen Andromeda). She must be playing a mythological character, because no ancient Greek queen could spend so much time outdoors and maintain such flawless porcelain skin. Perseus spends the movie looking like he's nursing a hangover after being dragged behind a truck, while Andromeda looks like she just stepped out of The Body Shop.
Put. my moisturizer. down. Now!
Many can't-believe-they-agreed-to-this scenes with Ralph Fiennes and Liam Neeson as Hades and Zeus. English actor Toby Kebbell's authentically dreadlocked hair and mangy moustache looked like a Edgar Wright/Jason Reitman hybrid.
That's Toby Kebbell (Agenor "the Navigator") in the center.
But which is Edgar and which is Jason?
Regal Fenway Screen 4, with Adam, Angus, Jose, Marc, and Murph. My first screening in Number 4, it's a very nice theater, considering it's tucked away in the farthest corner of the cinema.
If we had known Wrath of the Tit was playing, we would have seen it in 3D!
