Wrath of Titans : Motion comic DVD...or two minutes of it anyway.

I was heading home from work one day and decided to make a pit stop at Toys is us.  They have a pretty big DVD I was browsing and came across this WRATH OF THE TITANS special edition motion comic DVD for that HERCULES plays a role in the story and being that Perseus is HERKIE'S half brother I snatched that bitch up and runned on home to stick it in my player.
Great story...nice homage to Ray Harryhausen.  NOW...I gots to go out watch me the film....just to tie up loose ends.


  1. I've spent a lot of time trying to explain to my kids why Harryhausen is better than computer generated - but it's to no avail.

    When I was a kid I did stop action stuff with my super 8. Harryhausen was what I wanted to be when I grew up.

  2. CGI images have no weight to their movements. They seem to glide over the setting, rather than walk on it. It is not so much a problem when the movie is all CGI (Toy Story, The Lorax), but it is noticeable when they mix animation with live action (Jurassic Park, the 1990's Godzilla). Also, Ray Harryhausen and Willis O' Brien gave their monsters personalities, which their successors have never done.
