* ''Film/ClashOfTheTitans'' remake -- Subverted: The soldiers with Perseus have made camp, and one of them pulls a flute out of a bag. This film being what it is, you expect it to do something magical. He starts playing... and he's terrible, and nothing special happens. The lead soldier asks to see it, breaks it in half, and throws it aside. The player just gives him a level look, pulls another flute out of the bag and starts playing it just as poorly as before.
