Fan of old time fantasy movies? Then you know Harryhausen’s work.

I always thought his special effects were awesome.

It’s sad that I heard about this so late.  Clash of the Titans is one of my favorite movies.

Jason and the Argonauts trumps em all! Who can beat skeleton warriors popping out of the ground? my all time favorite.

I liked the premise too, scatter a few dragon’s teeth on the ground and boom! Instant army complete with shield and weapons. Fantastic workmanship for the time.

Actually, I kind of agree with you.  But Clash of the Titans has been a favorite since I was a kid.  I saw it well before I ever saw Jason and it holds sentimental value for me.  Sort of like how the 1990 remake of Night of the Living Dead is my favorite zombie movie largely because it was the first zombie movie I ever saw.
