Wrath of the Titans Review
By Simon Jago
A sequel to the 2010 remake of ‘Clash of the Titans’, the aptly named Wrath of the Titans this time actually features some Titans. With the 2010 remake having no Titans whatsoever, the sequel promised so much more with posters of the volcanic Kronos attacking ancient Greece. However, would this Gods Vs Titans free for all be one for the history books, or just an epic waste of time?
A decade on from the events of ‘Clash of the Titans’, Perseus (Sam Worthington) is attempting to live a simple and humble life as a fisherman with his son Helius. However, this is not to last as there is trouble in the heavens. The human races’ lack of faith has slowly drained the power of the Gods, weakening their control over the imprisoned Titans. The walls of Tartarus are crumbling and evil is escaping.
District 9 Review
By Ryan Casey
There are certain movies that come along and genuinely excite me. Neill Blomkamp’s science fiction blockbuster District 9 is one those movies. Set in modern day Johannesburg, and consisting of a relatively unknown cast District 9 hinted at offering something entirely fresh to the realm of science fiction cinema.
In 1982, a gigantic UFO took stationary residents over the city of Johannesburg. The craft was inhabited by an alien species labelled the derogatory term ‘prawns’. Twenty-eight years have passed and the prawns now live in a vast refugee camp called District 9 on the outskirts of the city. As local residents now tire of their intergalactic neighbours, tensions begin to flare and it is demand that the ‘Prawns’ are moved on to a new location.
