Gods! Gods yes!

And tons of too-toned manboob. :roll:


You've heard the one, I assume, about the little Greek boy who ran away from home because he was tired of the way he was being reared?

Rakis, I take it you like Clash of the Titians. Or is it just the gods and semi-gods? :D

I like Greek mythology, but i did enjoy Clash...Reminds me of old films like Sinbad and Jason and the Argonauts. Basically anything that Ray Harryhausen worked on... :)

Those were the good times...

Harryhausen was the best. I would love to have seen more of his stuff. We have Jason and the Argonauts plus Clash of the Titians on DVDs but that is all. (for now at least)

I always hated Greek/Roman mythology. I always read anything I could on Egyptian mythology, or even the Nordic works.

Both of those are good. I like most mythology: Norse, Greek, Roman, Eygptian, Oriental, Native American...just to name of few.

But when it comes to the art form of stop motion animation, Harryhausen was tops in his field in my opinion.

Hehe...probably the only good thing about the ancient Greeks apart from, well, the only good thing about the ancient Greeks. :twisted:
In memory of Perach, who suffered and died needlessly.

I wish I could have been with you that one last time.

Wasn't Clash of the Titans a Dino Di Laurientis production?

You forgot

Beefcake by Harry Hamlin. :P


On CNNj, Anderson Cooper just introduced a medical bit on head injuries focusing on Natasha Richardson's death with mention that husband Liam Neeson will soon begin work on Clash of the Titans.

So I guess this is really a done thing? (As well as a dumb thing.) :roll:

Hmm, ahh that's right... Di Laurientis did Cleat Epics, not Sandal Epics. How foolish of me.
