Clash of the Titans (1981)

Old school is the best school.

When they remade this film, they had the best greenscreens available, yet the result felt fairly lifeless when compared to what the original created with stop-motion and practical effects.

While director Desmond Davis sprinkled in distinguished thespians like Maggie Smith and Laurence Olivier to class up the joint, it’s true lead Harry Hamlin is upstaged by a mechanical owl.

But we’re not really here for the L.A. Law alum.

We want Medusa droppin’ serious side-eye and a rubbery Kraken making bodies hit the floor (of the ocean), and this childhood favorite delivers in style.
