CLASH OF THE TITANS
Sure, certain aspects of Clash of the Titans are so cheesy you may find Velveeta dripping off your TV screen. After all, Olivier’s Zeus presides in front of a laser show more befitting a Pink Floyd concert than an Olympian god, there’s a golden mechanical owl named Bubo, and Harry Hamlin is…well, Harry Hamlin. But as far as mythology adventure films go, it’s otherwise hard to beat. Special-effects master Ray Harryhausen struts his stuff with a two-headed dog, a giant sea creature, and his piece de resistance — Medusa. Go ahead, I dare you to look.
