I just caught the Clash of the Titans remake in 3D the other day. Was it better with the 3D and new CGI technology ? Yes and No.
Pegasus became a black horse and was not a inspiring as the stop motion version.
Medusa was quite a sight with the fluid motion, archery skills and awesome stony stare. Comparable to the stop motion ancestor.
The Stygian witches were on par in their sliminess and creepy demeanor.
And ah the Kraken, awesome tentacles but not enough screen time to build that awe inspiring finale.
There was no comparable character to the trusty R2-D2 clone Bubo the Owl but he did get a fleeting cameo.
And the 3D...hmm seems more like a 2D movie converted to 3D rather then a movie speicifically filmed to fully take advantage of the 3D effects. It was pretty uneven throughout the movie and only in some places like the palace scene where the King and Queen were declaring war on the Gods were you able to appreciate the 3D depth and effects fully. A lot of the times it did not give you the feel and even some of the great scenic moments as the team crossed over vast mountains did you get the full effect.
