I have a new crazy theory.Please hear me out.Everything in the STAR WARS universe seems futuristic.However it happened "a long time ago in a galaxy far,far away".Maybe their evolution goes backwards.Or maybe because of the Republic turning into Empire it all went to sh*t.Look at how countries look during war,and how they look before and after.

There's one big flaw to your theory: R2D2. He had a bunch of gadets and abilities in the prequels that he didn't have in the original movies. Sorry, but that's just massive plot holes by George Lucas.

But that's exactly what I said.He lost those things.The same happened to everything related to technology.

But HOW did he lose those things? PLOT HOLE! It's just an epic goof on Lucas' part. You don't make prequels that take place in the past but they look a thousand times better than the furture, because it's a plot hole. Even characters like Obi-Wan, Uncle Owen and Aunt Beru are plot holes. In Episode 3, they are in their 20s or 30s, but then in Episode 4, only 20 years later, they look like they are in their 70s!

I didn't say Lucas intended for that theory on purpose.

And I say he didn't intend ANYTHING at all. He didn't plan it all the way through, he just wanted to further cash in on his creation, plot holes be damned.

Was Batman Begins the only film prequel anyone's liked since 2000?
Scratch that, Batman Begins was a reboot. Since New Year's Day 2000, have there been any successful, well-received prequels that were not considered reboots? Because while sequels sometimes stand some chance of success, prequels are harder to make, and harder to avoid continuity errors and other contradictions.
 
By the way, I declare Clash of the Titans [remake] to be the #18 Worst Film of 2010. Horrible CGI images that are arguably lower-quality than the stop motion technology used in the 1981 original, poor plot, below-average acting, but this movie and its reviews are not as bad as those that follow.
My deadlines for Member-Started Forums, given 35% approval rating or less: Apl. 29; The Other Woman. May 6; Walk of Shame. May 20; Godzilla '014. May 27; Blended. Jne. 3; A Million Ways...

DEATH PROOF and PARANORMAL ACTIVITY 2.The rest are either direct-to-video(not enough reviews to judge)or were only technically prequels like IRON-MAN 2 being technically a prequel to THE INCREDIBLE "HULK".

By the way GTA I've seen 7 of your Dirty Dozen.

Nope, the list of good prequels is even shorter than the list of good sequels, because none exist! No, "Paranormal Activity 2" doesn't count, it was a mid-quel that took place before, during, and after the events of the first movie. And "Death Proof" doesn't count either because we don't know when it took place, before or during the events of "Planet Terror", although the scenes in question had NOTHING to do with the events of "PT" besides a wink-wink to the audience that the two movies exist in the same universe. "Iron Man 2" doesn't count either, again mid-quel, events happening during the same time that just so happen to be interconnected. A true prequel takes place YEARS before the events of the original movie and usually sets up events and introduces characters that will later have a major impact in the original movie. The "Star Wars" prequels fit that description ... and they sucked to high heaven. And there was that "Underworld" prequel, which was okay at best if you want a guilty pleasure to watch.

Ah Clash Of The Titans. It's a seriously dumb movie with stiff acting, but compared to the other crap I've been watching lately (specifically Rob Zombie's joyless Halloween movies) I'll take it.
 
The good:
 
The action scenes: When the film features action scenes, it gets exciting. If this featured more action and less boring scenes this film's RT score would be... a little higher, not in the fresh zone.
 
The (non 3D) special effects: The special effects that were ment to be in the film are really good.
 
Gemma Arterton's hotness: It's been a while since I've put an actress's hotness in a review. She's really hot, but her acting is... meh. Not really bad, but not good. Her performance in Prince Of Persia was pretty bad although I actually liked that one.
 
The bad:
 
Character design changes from the original: While I did like the Cthulhu-like appearance of the Kraken, the new designs aren't very good. Specifically, Calibos. In the original, he was an awesomely hideous thing. Here, he's Two-Face in a toga.
 
The Bubo insult: There's a brief scene where Perseus picks up Bubo, but throws him back in a chest. Bubo was awesome in the original film. He headbutted Calibos in the groin!
 
The ugly:
 
Sam Worthington: Worthington's just bad here. He's since apologized for it, but there's another reason for him being here. Read this* and find out!
 
The fake 3D: The fake 3D in this is an albatross around the film's neck. If this movie is brought up in a conversation, it's bound to be about bad 3D.
 
As you could tell from the review, I'm a big fan of the original Clash Of The Titans. I gave it a B+. Grade: B-
 
Next-up: P2! (Again, no reason)

I know I'm gonna offend a lot of people here (specially HeadRAZZ and SchumacherH8Ter), but I thought this was better than the original. Skip to 04:57.

Any thoughts?
