Overview

Gods and monsters reign supreme in the 1981 hit Clash of the Titans. Warner's work on this 1.85:1 anamorphic widescreen transfer is only average. While some of the colors and black levels are solid and well-defined, there is also an overabundance of dirt and grain in the image. With some muted colors showing up and far too many defects to be found, this transfer is a real disappointment to fans of the film. The soundtrack is presented in Dolby Digital Stereo in English as well as Dolby Mono in French. Much like the video transfer, this soundtrack could have been a lot more exciting (and featured in a 5.1 remix). While the dialogue, effects, and music all sound flat, overall there is a lack of any excessive hiss or distortion. Also included on this disc are English, French, Spanish, Portuguese, Japanese, Chinese, Bahasa, Thai, and Korean subtitles. The extra features on Clash of the Titans aren't very substantial, though there are a few supplements fans should enjoy. Starting off the disc is "A Conversation With Ray Harryhausen," which features the special effects master discussing his craft, his work on Clash of the Titans, and what he thinks of the cast and crew. "Map of Myths and Monsters" is just an extension of the conversation with Ray Harryhausen. The screen features a few icons which viewers can click on and hear Harryhausen's thoughts on each creature or monster creation. Finally, there is a theatrical trailer for the film as well as some information on a few of the cast members.
