The Last Of Its Kind

Clash Of The Titans(1981)
Directed By Desmond Davis
The amazing stop motion of Ray Harryhausen against the world of greek mythology, kind of.The characters are all incredibly rigid, even for a Greek myth, the story of Perseus:, get's a makeover, that takes the hero throughout the world of greek myths, he meets the Fates, Zeus, Medusa, and the Kraken, and even gets a golden mechanical owl.It's maybe the last great adventure film, without CGI or some form of "modern" special effects. But that's making a mountain of a molehill, when most immediately it's just childhood favorite. My grandmother showed me this and "The Seventh Voyage Of Sinbad", another Harryhausen classic, and this just makes me all warm and fuzzy. .See it before it get's remade.
