Re: Quasi-related-Been watchin'
Clash of the Titans is the stuff my childhood is made of, but your review is mostly right. It has alot of Harryhausen's best work but I'd add the criticism that I do think that it's not structured very well. The fight with Medusa is clearly the best part of the movie and that had to have been obvious to everyone when they were making it. The actual climax is acceptable but by that point we've already seen a bunch of action scenes that were more exciting.
Medusa with a snake tail is original to that movie (as far as I know) but it's endured in pop culture.
I'm not familiar with the Ghost Rider movies but this is an interesting opinion of the second one, which really makes a judgement opposite what you thought of the first: https://www.chicagoreader.com/Bleader/archives/2012/02/21/more-flaming-bucket-wheel-excavators-please
