im a big fan of the original 1981 movie with harry hamlin! i love that movie! when i do see the new movie i know i’ll be comparing it to the original! i know that some remakes dont work, but it will be very interesting to see how this movie pans out! ! i love special effects how they do things now, but im also a HUGE fan of old school effects! i am a huge fan of Ray Harryhausen! i love his work! his dedication to his work is legendary!! stop motion animation is a long tedious technique, and when watching the 1981 film last night on TCM, robert osbourne said it took ray 7 yrs to complete it, which was harryhausen’s last film!
The trailer for the new clash of the titans does look amazing! i will be including it in this post as well as the 1981 movie trailer. and yes, computer cgi is amazing! but lets not forget the special effects masters of yesteryear like ray!
