Attack of the Titans

Yeah, Clash of the Titans took a few - thousand - liberties with Greek Mythology.  Here's a highlight I've always wanted to see and they never put it in the movies:  Pegasus (and there's only one) actually springs from the blood of Medusa when Perseus cuts off her head.  Wouldn't you rather watch a horse growing out of Medusa's neck than, well, just about anything?  I know I would.  And Io.  For pity's sake, she was one of the beauties Zeus had a crush on and his wife was jealous so Zeus changed Io into a cow but Hera knew it was still Io and made Zeus give her the cow as a present and it was a whole thing.  More fun to watch, but I suppose not more fun for Io.  If you are in need of real entertainment  read the myths.  You would not believe the shenanigans that bunch got up to.
