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: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/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.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t4K4I59jUTs .See it before it get's remade.
