Glad to see somebody's got the balls to tell it like it is. Claymation > CGI.

I remember seeing this when I was a little one and Medusa scarring my for life. I couldn't look at some one for years without the assistance of a mirror.

I always wondered though, why is it when Medusa's head in a bag bleeds on the ground, scorpions pop up, but when she gets decapitated and that river of blood bursts forth, nothing appears at all

I'm surprised you didn't mention the skeleton army fight scene. That was easily one of my favorite scenes in the movie, and one of the most complicated stop motion scenes I have seen.

Medusa used to scare the crap out of me as a kid. I remember hiding my face in a pillow whenever they'd show *her* face on screen because she could turn you to stone, you know! Every time I've watched this, I've always wondered what they could do with it with "modern" special effects. Guess I'll get to find out soon...

I got excited and thought Hanglyman was Pacman

Skeleton fight scene is the best part of the movie.

Actually, something FAR more awesome would be having Mickey train Perseus before his battles.

Meekrat - Yep, that's one o' the things Jason and the Argonauts is famous for. I think they're just confusing the two films.

Actually, there are robots in Greek mythology. For example, there was Talos. Also, Hephaestus had a private robot army.

Yes, Greek mythology is friggin' awesome!

In the myths, Medusa's blood did turn into a bunch of completely random things, but why would the movie start listening to the myths now? Besides, like Pentegarn said, it's not like the blood did anything when it came out of her neck.

As always you never dissapoint with youru top ten list RoG but there's one scene that should have made this list. That being when the head of Thetis's statue comes falling off freaking everybody out and comes to live demanding that Andromeda's little virgin ass gets sacrificed to the kraken or else she get's medival on Joppa. That scene never fails to crack me up.

Just another fun fact.... The nes classic Kid Icarus steals so much from this film that it isn't even funny. The most notable ones are the fact that on the last level Pit is also given three gifts, only they make it more blatent by making the shield a mirror shield. And then you go on to fight... you guessed it, a giant medusa head!

Of course the film steals a lot from greek mythology as well, so who knows which was the inspiration for the game.

And yeah... the greek gods had robots. But hell the greeks themselves had robots!

http://www.mlahanas.de/Greeks/Techno...nology003.html

Like our own culture, they had various mechanial toys in human form and although they weren't life-like in the least, much like our own culture, when it came time to write fiction, they imagined more complicated devices that were essentially living mechanial men.


People ignore the fact that the ancient world rivaled our own on a lot of levels. Take away electricity and the internal combustion engine and we are basically still where they were way back then!

I love Clash of the Titans. It's been one of my favorite movies since I was a little kid. I haven't seen the remake, but I'm sure it won't be as good.

looks like something i'd look at anyways. to compare the new one to it.... kind of like the Dawn of the dead movies.... or that new remake to Return of the living dead...... super zombies with a Gatling gun grafted on them does NOT make the m super if they fall after one shot. Nemesis was a super zombie and the movies messed that one up too!!!
