Are you sitting at work, watching the minutes tick by until you're finally free for the weekend, wondering how you'll occupy yourself for the next two days of work-free bliss? Are you thinking about risking the wrath of your significant other to go see The Dark Knight for the fifteenth time? There's not a lot new coming out this week in theaters. No new comic book hero movies, no new sci-fi epics, and no new horror villains to make you scream... unless you count Nicolas Cage's scary-ass hairdo in Bangkok Dangerous. Screw it. You might as well be a slacker and waste away the weekend on the Internet.
Here are a few things to help your eyes glaze over as you stare at the computer screen:
Clash of the Titans, the cult classic mash-up of Greek mythologies and Harry Hamlin's 1981 abs, has finally gotten the remake treatment. The big, loud, expensive re-imagining hits theaters this week (in 3-D!), and though the 3-D itself and lead actor Sam Worthington disappoint, the movie is actually so fun and so gleefully stupid that, watching it, I felt like I was five years old again. I'm ashamed to admit it, but I love this mess of a movie.
