This sequel to 2010's remake of the beloved 1981 classic is noteworthy only in how quickly it manages to completely evaporate from your memory by the time you exit the theater. Walking to my car, I had a distinct Leonard Shelby moment when I realized "I'm in this parking garage. Why? Am I arriving somewhere? Am I leaving?" Fumbling through my pockets, I discovered a ticket stub that seemed to indicate that I'd used a gift card to be granted admission to something called WRATH OF THE TITANS approximately two hours earlier. And yet...I had no memory of this experience.
