Since when has Kronos, the God of Time and the Universe, become a God of volcanic death set on destroying all of creation? Admittedly I am a mythos buff. I cut my teeth on Bullfinch’s Mythology and Edith Hamilton’s Mythology. I realize that Hollywood is interested in blockbusters, but really? Kronos is now a volcanic fire god without the positive qualities of the impressive Hawaiian volcano Goddess Pele?
Who knew Hollywood was that bad now? No wonder I virtually never watch TV or go to the movies. However, after a grand dinner with a dear friend last night I had the
misfortune to shell out way too much money to go to the movies and see the 3-D version of Wrath of the Titans.
If you like special effects, go. For any other reason – like the ability to act – save your money and do something positive with your time, like floss that cat’s teeth.
Me, I’d rather go for a hike. Oh, I did go for a hike today. The pup and I charged up the nearly one mile trail to the top of Weir Hill in North Andover today and had a merry old time. Keep smiling! There is life outside of Hollywood!
And the dog has had a day! A 2 mile hike, a Burger King Stacker all his own (shhh, don’t tell his “Mom”), and fun and frolic with new doggie friends. It is time for a snooze!
