 Popcorn Culture - Throwback: Jason and the Argonauts

As we enter the summer blockbuster season and prepare for CGI overload, we're throwing back to 1963 and the visual effects spectacular of its time - Jason and the Argonauts. Jason, a man in search of a magical Golden Fleece, gathers Greece's best warriors and goes off on an adventure, battling hydras, giants, and a skeleton army along the way. Classic, cinematic fun. In this episode, we discuss the film's stop motion animation and why it's still so inspiring, as well as what modern blockbusters can learn from classic cinema.
