I am a nerd. Those of you who read this blog have probably figured that out already. I love all things Elves (and would love to learn some Elvish), took the time to memorize the English royal lineage (for fun!) from Henry VIII to the present, dream of visiting places like Pompeii (and various cemeteries) on my honeymoon, and I keep a running list of vocabulary I don't know so that I can look it up when I get home.
Well, maybe I'm not a nerd, but I fancy myself one.
This was my FAVORITE movie growing up (right alongside Red Sonya, The Beastmaster, and Conan the Barbarian. Am I a child of the 80s or what?!?). The Greek mythology fascinated me; I thought the mechanical owl, Bubo, was awesome; and desperately wanted to be Andromeda so that a Pegasus-riding Perseus would rescue me (Come to think of it, I still would like that). I thought the effects were awesome, and was especially mesmerized by the miniature pawns that looked like people that the gods in Olympia played with (changing the fates of real people along the way).
I developed a girl crush (definition here) on Miss Andromeda herself, Judi Bowker. I really thought she was the most beautiful girl I had ever seen! You can see her above in the photo on the left and judge for yourself that she is indeed lovely (and what a tragic existence she leads!) You really must watch this classic movie if you haven't seen it.
Imagine my surprise when I saw on IMDB that they're making a new Clash of the Titans for 2010. I don't know much about it (who is this Sam Worthington and Alexa Davalos, playing Perseus and Andromeda, respectfully), but I'm excited.
I'm also looking forward to this movie:
