** I think the OP was asking why PERSEUS wasn't more pissed with the people of Argos, since it could be said it was their fault his family got caught up in Hades's attack.

** Bubo's a bit of a NoRespectGuy, he preformed many genuinely awesome and heroic things in the film. But some have mistaken him for a useless KidAppealCharacter.

** This is Hades, the most malevolent of the gods featured in the movie. As he said, he regards humans as the dust beneath his fingernails. "Oh, there are some more humans over there in that boat." is like "More cockroaches to squash." Unlike the other gods, Hades doesn't need to have considerations for the feelings of mortals. He alone doesn't need their love. All they have to do is feed him their death and fear.

** The owl was the annoying wacky talking robot animal sidekick in the 1980's film. It was stupid even by 80's standards.
** Stupid? Bubo was one of the best things in the excellent 80s version (to a kid, anyway).
** Not just kids! Though I'll admit I've always been fond of old style clocks and other machines powered in a similar fashion. (like Bubo perhaps?)

* In the end of ''Wrath'', Perseus seems to kill Cronos with the Spear of Atrium. If Cronos indeed died with it, you gotta wonder, why did Zeus, Poseidon and Hades ''not'' kill him with it when, you know, he was imprisoned? And in that very fight, if Cronos' [[ShockwaveStomp shockwave punches]] were so powerful as to get Zeus near-killed in two hits, why didn't he, you know, [[WhyDontYouJustShootHim lead with that]]?
** An in-story reason might be the gods did not trust each other enough to give up their personal weapons or wanted Cronos to suffer. The real reason like many of the plot holes in the remake and its sequal is [[ForgotAboutHisPowers Plot Induced Stupidity]]

** It was just a poorly thought out idea. How did the Titans survive without mortals to worship them? How did the gods win the war without mortal prayers to strengthen them? If Athena in a fit of pique could create Medusa and its head defeat the Kraken why were the Titans and gods scare of it? Why did the Olympians not create new worshippers or build it into humans that humans had to worship them? Why are mortals rebelling against the gods and not their own rulers who come across as dicks as well?

* It's understandable that humans would lose interest in praying to deities that had long track-records of being complete dicks to mortals, particularly after Perseus demonstrated how someone who rejects their worship can still kick Kraken ass. But why would those divine figures that ''didn't'' have such a bad relationship with mortals, like most of the goddesses or the umpteen-million petty household and nature deities, die out as well? What did the likes of Hermes or Demeter ever do to alienate humanity?

** The three hags spell it out explicitly: Medusa's gaze petrifies everything made of ''flesh'', not wood and charcoal.

** That's not the reason. Medusa can petrify only living beings, and given that Suleiman is made of wood, [[OurLichesAreDifferent he is not technically alive]]. He is like a walking piece of furniture to her.

* The Djinn was immune to Medusa's gaze because he was not a man. But a tentacled monstrosity like the Kraken takes one look at her and turns to stone?
