I love the classic science fiction films based on mythology like Jason and the Argonauts and Sinbad so when I learned some of my favorites would be on COMET TV in May, I scheduled a movie weekend. Of course, there are also lots of my other favorites like Labyrinth and The Three Worlds of Gulliver. You can check out the Ray Harryhausen stop motion techniques he’s best known for when you watch.

Remember, you don’t need to pay to watch COMET TV. It’s totally free all the time! Check out the full list of movies available on their site.

  1. Oh boy I’ll be watching Sunday. I like those movies from the 50s and 60s, but will try to watch as many as I can. I was in school most of the eighties, lol, so I haven’t seen any of those either! Should be very entertaining.
