Go See: "Clash of the Titans" 3D

I am still pondering about this film, "Clash of the Titans" in 3D. Maybe it's that I just can't get over how hot Sam Worthington looked in a short roman soldier costume. I kept waiting for a good breeze but it never happened. If you saw the 1981 version, starring Harry Hamlin, you'll find that it's a tad different. Perhaps it's the special effects instead of stop motion, or the fancy plastic 3D glasses that are offered (with a lovely recycling bin at the exit, very eco-friendly!). Sadly, the last 3D film I saw "Jaws 3-D" and they gave us cardboard glasses like these

I won't spoil anything for you as that is not my thing. I specifically don't read reviews for the very purpose that I like to be surprised and don't like preconceived notions about a film. It was well cast, from Liam Neeson as Zeus, Ralph Fiennes as Hades, Mads Mikkelsen as Draco, and Gemma Arterton as lo.

Here's a sneak peek - enjoy!

Can't Wait: Eat, Pray, Love

I absolutely LOVED the book, written by Elizabeth Gilbert. With such an incredible story to tell based on true life events, it's no wonder that Hollywood snatched it up to make it into a film.

"Eat, Pray, Love" is directed by Ryan Murphy who has written and directed several episodes of "Nip/Tuck" and "Glee", and he also directed the Augusten Burroughs memoir, "Running with Scissors".

"Eat, Pray, Love" has an amazing cast starring none other than, Julia Roberts, with James Franco as a love interest, as well as the hunky Javier Bardem. Billy Crudup once again, plays the bad guy, while Richard Jenkens plays the good guy. However, I feel that I've already told you too much about the storyline...! You will have to wait and see for yourself. Unfortunately we have to wait until August 13th. Bummer!

In the meantime, check out the trailer:
