Jason and the Argonauts

I was six when this movie came out. Then I thought it was stunning. The realism, the creatures, the nasty, mean vindictive gods (almost Olde Testament stuff), and the action. Everything a kid could enjoy. So, yesterday, 52 years later, seeing it was to be shown on TV, my partner and I decided, what the heck, let's watch.

Considering they only had 1963 technology, the special effects are still great, surprisingly so. Actually, the movie stands the test of time quite well, even for a sci-fi/Greek god/kids' adventure tale. It still entertains and almost makes you wish for the next episode.

Death, destruction, vindictiveness, hatred, love, sword fights, huge gods popping up out of the ocean, a giant bronze warrior - what is not to like? Not on my top ten list, but very watchable.

What is your favorite childhood movie?

Merry holidays to all

I've concentrated on saying Happy Holidays, at least when I don't say "Bah, Humbug."

So far, the responses have all been warm, and usually saying the same thing back to me. (especially the bah, humbug bit)

I haven't had any bible beating bitcher complain about it, and certainly no concealed carry moran has threatened me for attacking x-mas.

So, be safe, enjoy your feed and drink, and be nice to the elderly and the kiddies.
