Todd Armstrong as Jason



Nancy Kovack as Medea



Honor Blackman as Hera



The famous skeleton battle sequence which in my opinion is one of the most unique and thrilling scenes of all time. You gotta remember, for it's time, this was an amazing sequence.



I recently revisited this great film for the first time in years and am still amazed at how cool it is till this day. Yes, the special effects are dated, but they're still so cool to watch. Filmmakers back then had to use every inch of talent to create such effects, and in my opinion worked more a lot harder back then than today, with the help of computers. In short, this is one of the greatest fantasy films you will ever see.

Honestly cigar, how excited was the crowd when you seen this years ago? Were you excited yourself?

Hey are amazing moviesceleton! The skeleton battle scene is one of my favorite scenes of all time. It's just plain cool.

I'm just a little turd. . . but I can't watch one of these movies without laughing at the stop-motion animation and the horrible acting. Although, to be fair, I've not seen this particular one.

Yeah, the acting is often worse than crappy but stop-motion animations are cool.

I watched one of the "Seven Voyages of Sinbad" movies and I laughed my way through it. To be fair, I prefer claymation skeletons to CGI.

So, you were howling on the floor through all the POTC movies? (no skeletons, I know, but you got the idea)

I didn't find them funny, but I didn't take well to the idiot fishface guys. I mean how seriously can you take these morons:



Obviously, being involved in Hollywood these days means smoking lots of crack.

You know what's funny though. A lot of CGI today is more laughable than stop-motion animation. Sometimes I prefer stop-motion animation. It's just fun movie making.

I liked the character, but he looked idiotic.

However, I apologize for hijacking the thread and will allow you discuss Harryhausen's films now. Undecided
