!!Film/{{Jason and the Argonauts}}

* AdaptationDisplacement: Many fans are under the illusion that Harryhausen himself created the story.
* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: The dance scene in the Harryhausen film. In the Hallmark film, the scene where Zeus tempts Medea which is never mentioned again.
* CrowningMusicOfAwesome: The score is by Bernard Herrmann. Every cue is a CMOA!
* DesignatedHero: Jason, full stop. His goal to take back his kingdom may be admirable (though we don't know for sure if his father Aristo wasn't, say, a brutal tyrant), but it's hard not to notice his [[NoSympathy blatant indifference]] to the loss of crewmen over the course of his journey or his plans to filch the Golden Fleece out of Colchis.
** Averted in the Hallmark film where he must find the Fleece or else his mother will be killed.
* HilariousInHindsight: Brian Thompson plays Demigod Hercules in the Hallmark film. A few years later he would get bumped up and play Cronus in ''{{Charmed}}''.
* 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]].
* {{Narm}}: A good chunk of the Harryhausen film due to Todd Armstrong's awful acting, the fight with [[spoiler: Acastus]] in particular. The harpy scene also fails to be anyway intimidating.
** The last few scenes in the Hallmark one are made comical by the fact that Pelias is actually wearing the Fleece and looks quite ridiculous.
** The [[DemBones fight with the Skeletons]] starts out ok, as they silently, slowly march forward...before letting out a high-pitched "war cry" that sounds like a pack of angry schoolgirls. The scene continues on and is rightfully lauded, but for that one moment...
* NightmareFuel: ''Everything'' with Talos in the Harryhausen film, from the moment he wakes up and starts chasing the Argonauts to his death scene, where he grabs his throat and starts making noises like screeching metal.
* OneSceneWonder: Honor Blackman steals the show in the Harryhausen film, playing Hera. Olivia Williams steals the show in the Hallmark film, coincidentally also playing Hera.
* 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!
