Wrath of the Titans

Wrath of the Titans Top 10 Movies
As the struggle for supremacy carries on between the Gods and the Titans, Perseus, the demigod is attempting to live his life out as a village fisherman. He is also the sole parent to his son, Helius. Becoming dangerously weak due to the lack of humanity’s devotion, the Titans and their leader Kronos are gaining ground. They run into treacherous obstacles along the way but, never losing sight of his mission to rescue his father, Zeus. A definite add to any movie list.

The graphics and special effects in this Warner Bros picture are amazing to say the least. The graphics make this movie one of the best movies of the year in terms of creativity. Also, available for viewing in 3D, Wrath of the Titans is a must see. I am glad that I followed the godly powers into the theatre to check this movie out.

John Carter

John Carter Top 10 MoviesThis Movie is about a former military captain John Carter (Taylor Kitsch), who is was transported to Mars, where he becomes mixed up in a conflict. The conflict is amongst the inhabitants of the planet, including Tars Tarkas (Willem Dafoe) and the Princess Dejah Thoris (Lynn Collins). In a world on the verge of collapsing, Carter realizes that the survival of Barsoom and its people rests in his hands. The movie is based on the book, Princess of Mars, which was the first in a series of 11 novels and written by Edgar Rice Burroughs over 100 years ago. Unfortunately, this movie was not taken well by many critics and certainly had to be hard on Disney after the $250 million dollars put into its making. I for one cannot say, this is on my top movies list but, I will say the movie is Okay. If you are into Sci-Fi, this may be on one of your top ten movies of the year thus far. The graphics are indeed, amazing.
