Q & A Clash of the Titans From a 5 Year Old

Our Saturday movie night at home was Clash Of The Titans. I have seen the original version when I was a kid. If my memory serves me right, I think the 2010 remake omitted a lot of stuff from the original 1981 version. My youngest daughter kept me entertained throughout the movie with her questions and thoughts. She was making side comments so often that I had to turn on captioning because I couldn't hear what the characters were saying.

My eldest daughter had a sleep over at her cousin's house leaving my little one quite bored. At first, she didn't want to watch Clash Of The Titans with us so she stayed in her bedroom. She must of heard the thunderous sound effects from her room because she walked into the living room and stood there watching the movie for a minute before climbing on my laps. Here's courtesy of a 5 year old take on the characters in Clash Of The Titans:

When Pegasus - a winged horse god - first appeared in the movie, my little one asked:
Daughter: Is that a dog?
Me: A dog doesn't have wings baby.
Daughter: Is it a pony with wings?
Me: Close. It's a horse with wings. 
Daughter: Can I have one?
Me: Shhhh.... 
Daughter: Mom, can you buy me that?
Me: No, shhhh....
All the while, I was trying to figure out if it was indeed Pegasus because Pegasus was white in the original Clash Of The Titans.

Medusa scene...
Daughter: Is that a girl? 
Me: Yes. 
Daughter: How come her hair is moving? Mom, is her hair snakes?
Me: Yes. 
Daughter: How come her head has snakes?
Me: Because she was a bad girl.

I have no idea what this creature is...
Daughter: What's that?
Me: Don't know.
Daughter: Is that a smoke face?
Me: Huh? 
Daughter: His face is smoke face. 
Me: Yeah. (Agreeing with her so she'd stop asking anymore questions)

And finally, Kraken!
Daughter: Is that a chihuahua head?
Me: LOL! No, it's a monster.
Daughter: A chihuahua head monster?
Me: It's not a dog. It's a monster.
Daughter: How come he has a lot of teeth? Do he eat people?
Me: Yes. He eats people. 

Have you seen Clash Of The Titans?

Veronica Lee said...

LOL! Cute dialog!!

I've watched both versions of the movie but I don't remember much of the original version. My love affair with Greek mythology began after that!! I'm totally into this. Ask me the name of any Gods, Godesses, demi-gods and titans and I'll be able to answer you!!
Did you also watch Percy Jackson and the lightning thief?

Mama Hen said...

"His face is smoke face." OMG, that one really cracks me up. haha. Medusa looks hot. I might actually watch this one with my daughter too. I find her questions more than just annoying... they're like koans from a Zen buddhist teacher.

Ash said...

Oh, she is too adorable! I had such a good laugh reading this :) I never watched the new Clash of the Titans but I have watched the older version. Totally love your reason for Medusa having snakes in her hair. That was just priceless :)

TK said...

So cute of your daughter to ask those questions. Ive seen the original version and it's actually my kind of movie..I like to watch the moving snakes on medusa's head.. :)She is really a bad girl!!!

My husband and I watched it AFTER bedtime. Julia hasn't been privy to those types of movies yet. She would have more questions than could possibly be answered. I pretty much have to give a running narration of what's happening.

I'm waiting for her to be old enough to read the captions herself!

Chihuahua head monster that's a keeper.

Serline said...

Haven't seen either version yet, but now that my interest is piqued, I will go check it out these next few days.

Watched it last night, with Narelle clinging to my arms. Best part was the scorpion battle. Pegasus was understandably one of Narelle's favorites ;-)

Wendy said...

oh my god. I have not laughed so hard in a long time!!!!

Yes, I've seen Clash of the Titans. I think I saw it at the movie theater actually. I remembered it was boring, and creepy, and scary.
