Jason and the Argonauts (1963)

Still a heck of a lot of fun.

Special effects have advanced over time, but it’s hard to top the stop-motion magic conjured by Ray Harryhausen.

When the master of mayhem unleashes sword-wielding skeletons, it doesn’t really matter if you’re five or 75 — it’s thrilling.

Tracking Jason and his plucky warriors as they pursue the Golden Fleece, dodging enemies of all shapes and sizes, this is perfect matinee fodder.

While it hit theaters before my time, I kept the dream clicking, playing it on in-store TV’s at Videoville back in the day.

Just doing my part to keep cinema alive.
