Wrath of the Titans

(PG) ★★☆☆☆

This more-of-the-same sequel lacks inspiration or zest in storytelling, performance or action. Perseus (Sam Worthington) is now a widower and single father, having given up soldiering until a multi-headed creature invades his village and he must reveal the powers he possesses as half man, half god. His father, Zeus (Liam Neeson), is himself engaged in battle with his brother Hades (Ralph Fiennes) and full-god son Ares (Édgar Ramirez). Most of this film feels off.

Total GWAR

By Jarret Keene

Costumed, comedy shock rockers GWAR, from Richmond, Va., have been slinging fake gore at audiences and performing absurd songs such as “You Are My Meat” for more than 20 years. Vegas Seven called the band’s frontman, Dave Brockie, a.k.a. Oderus Urungus (an intergalactic, horned humanoid barbarian), who refused to break character. Indeed, Brockie insisted on conversing as if he’s really the chief “chaos warrior intent on eradicating all life on Earth—even the tiny, helpless creatures.” GWAR’s most recent album is 2010’s Bloody Pit of Horror.
