Fly Over: ‘Across the Universe’

Posted May 18, 2012 by by Macario Mora

On DVD: ‘Wrath of the Titans’ by Jayson Burns Two years ago, Warner Bros. gave us a remake of “Clash of the Titans.” It didn’t see much critical acclaim, and it all but threw Greek mythology out the window, but I thought it had fun action sequences and was set at a decent pace with…
