Wonderful Load of Old Nonsense
- Clash of the Titans review by AP
I imagine it's sacrilegious to say anything unappreciative of Ray Harryhausen, but I did find his special effects quite badly dated now. Mind you, there's plenty of modern CGI out there that doesn't work for me, especially big battle scenes using ridiculously large numbers of moving pixels or whatever. Nevertheless, I enjoyed watching old artistry at work and British mainstream classical actors managing to keep straight faces. Tim Piggott-Smith plays a rare role as a goody, and the young leads do a good job. The best of the monsters for me were the scorpions and Medusa, and the make up for Calibos is dramatic. Good stuff with a beer and a packet of popcorn.
