    Jason and the Argonauts

    An oldie but goodie. Sure, it's kinda campy but they just don't make 'em like they used to. It's much better than the made for TV mini-series that came out a few years ago.

    The way mythology ought to be told

    If you enjoy Greek mythology and good film making, you'll certainly enjoy "Jason and the Argonauts." It is indeed possible to reproduce the ancient world without digital special effects! A strong cast, excellent photography and, of course, Ray Harryhousen's wonderful special effects make this a DVD you'll watch more than once.

    Give it a try

    I can remember seeing this movie in the drive in as a child and being absolutely PETRIFIED of the skeletons popping up and sword fighting-the special effects in this movie are marvelous considering the year it was made. I ADORE neptune coming up from the sea to hold the clashing rocks and the bronze man coming down from his pedestal to avenge the plundering of his treasure trove. AND I LOVED the actor who played Jason . I always thought he was so handsome, but I have never seen him in anything else. It starts kind of slow at first, but is worth the wait.

    One of the Best

    This wonderful fantasy has it all: Derring-do, romance and a good feel for the subject matter. On top of the well-known skeleton and harpy scenes, it has something no other Greek myth movie I know of has ever shown: in the original stories Hercules (or Heracles, if you're Greek) is a whining, self-centered baby who just happens to be super strong. Lo and behold, in this movie that's just the way he's portrayed. Loved it!
