Once Upon A Time, They Made Fantasy Movies Like This.

It's sort of amazing how low the bar has fallen for big tentpole action/fantasy films. With the rise of 3-D (and, more to the point, 3-D surcharges), spectacle is the minimum entrance requirement, and even that has been watered down to the point of monotony. You can pick your poison, but I've always thought the worst of these were the Clash of the Titans movies, so dim, so ugly, so lazy, so lacking in the basic foundation of story structure and any sense of awe or wonder. They're basically cheap sets, bored actors, and a final half-hour of murky, haphazard CGI. You can make these so inexpensively now, with so little effort. It's creeping Worthingtonism.
