Added DiffLines:

* TookTheBadFilmSeriously: Honor Blackman promptly steals the show in a movie that has stop motion skeletons fighting Greek soldiers and mermen holding clashing rocks apart, mainly because she's the only one with well written lines that don't sound forced or hammed up in the delivery.

Added DiffLines:

* NarmCharm: However some people find the sudden screeching of the skeletons quite scary, as they suddenly begin their attack on the Argonauts.

* HoYay: Hylas and Hercules sure do pair up quick. Hylas essentially [[spoiler:dies]] trying to pick up after his thoughtless boyfriend and, afterwards, Hercules quits the quest [[spoiler:to retrieve his body]]. Might be AccidentallyAccurate, as some versions of the myth have Hercules and Hylas as lovers.

* CrowningMusicOfAwesome: The score is by Bernard Herrmann. Every cue is a CMOA!

* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: The dance scene in the Harryhausen film. In the Hallmark film, the scene where Zeus tempts Medea which is never mentioned again.

* VisualEffectsOfAwesome: Every monster in the movie, but the crowning moment is undoubtedly the fighting skeletons scene. That 3 minute scene took Ray Harryhausen 4 months of solid work! The Talos scene also holds up reasonably well over the years.

** Which film is better. Fans of the Harryhausen film defend it quite passionately, though some mistake the 2000 film for a remake when it's really just a TruerToTheText adaptation of the original myth.

* AuthorsSavingThrow: Jason and Medea are very much the DesignatedHero in the original myth and film. The 2000 miniseries goes out of its way to make Jason more unambiguously heroic - being ordered to get the Fleece to save his mother's life. Medea likewise gets shown to grieve for the deaths of her father and brother.
* BaseBreaker:
** The happy ending in the Hallmark film. Some despise it since this one is explicitly more faithful to the myth, and it contradicts the DownerEnding. Others feel it fits the tone of the story, especially since the Harryhausen film cuts off before the return journey to Pelias.
** Including Atalanta in the 2000 film. Some invoke TheyChangedItNowItSucks and complain about political correctness (especially with the AffirmativeActionGirl being involved in some kind of love triangle with Jason). Others are fine with it, since some myths do say that Jason included Atalanta on the voyage.
* BrokenBase: Which film is better. Fans of the Harryhausen film defend it quite passionately, though some mistake the 2000 film for a remake when it's really just a TruerToTheText adaptation of the original myth.



* EnsembleDarkhorse:
** Hera is one of the most memorable things about both films. It helps that in the first Honor Blackman absolutely steals the show, and overall it's one of the rare myths in which Hera is heroic (rather than the EvilMatriarch she normally is).
** From the 2000 film, Actor gets a lot of love since he's a LovableRogue who ends up with a full-on HeelFaceTurn.
** Acastus in a sense, given how both myths apply AdaptationalVillainy - leaving viewers feeling sorry for him. He's also sympathetic in both versions, since the Harryhausen film has Jason attempting to usurp the throne from him. And in the 2000 version he's a WellDoneSonGuy.
* FanPreferredCouple: Atalanta and Actor end on a MaybeEverAfter situation but the fans generally agree that Atalanta will move on with him.



* VisualEffectsOfAwesome: Every monster in the movie, but the crowning moment is undoubtedly the fighting skeletons scene. That 3 minute scene took Ray Harryhausen 4 months of solid work!

to:

* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodCharacter: Unfortunately the Harryhausen film does not have the time to develop the remaining Argonauts - with Acastus, Argus, Hercules and Hylas being the only ones who get more than the odd line. Conversely the miniseries has more developed LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters.
