Clash of the Titans (1981)
Ray Harryhausen’s biggest fantasy-adventure is fun, but not his best film. It pits some hammy actors playing “gods” who toy with the machinations of gods over the fates of mortals. Perseus, the mortal son of Zeus sets out to fulfill his destiny by rescuing his beloved Andromeda from the wrath of the Goddess Thetis. Along the way, he meets up with all kinds of cool Harryhausen creatures, including Medusa, the Kraken, Pegasus, giant scorpions, two-headed dog Dioskilos, and more. Out of print DVD.
