Some of that stuff still looks better than CGI.

To me all of it does. I don't know why, but I've never been won over by CGI. It has its moments, certainly; I think it's great for films like "Iron Man", that couldn't exist otherwise. When it's monsters, though, you can't beat some Harryhausen stop-motion. For me, the original "Clash Of The Titans" remains the greatest monster movie of them all.

:((((((

The fighting skeletons are my faves. I'm amazed how Ray managed to do it and make it look good at the same time.

I love those skeletons. They're incredibly well done. I saw "Clash Of The Titans" at the cinema when it first came out, and Medusa was brilliantly scary. It's a remarkable art form.
