A wonderful, self-recommending adventure classic

"Hecate, Queen of Darkness, revenge yourself against the Thessalians. Deliver to me the children of the hydra's teeth, the children of the night!"Anybody with so much as a passing interest in big-screen special effects should be aware of the late great Ray Harryhausen, a legendary stop-motion animator who has fuelled the imaginations of children and budding filmmakers for decades. Among his more w... read more

Ray Harryhausen regarded this as his all-time best film, and it was a moment of an artist correctly appraising their own work. This is not only the greatest film in his canon, but one of the greatest films of all-time. No, it’s not some deep, cerebral viewing experience, but this is what a piece of great entertainment looks like. This is what a transportive, highly imaginative action-fantasy-epi... read more

(OK) In a way is a common peplum, but Harryhausen makes a feast with the stone colossus and most of all with the eagle men; and seen from the clouds and the olympus, there´s another dimension..

Just a lot of fun...

“While not my all-time favourite movie or anything, I really like Jason and the Argonauts. It does start off a little slow and Todd Armstrong is a tad wooden in the lead, but visually and audibly it is simply delightful. The scenery is splendid as is the cinematography, and Bernard Hermann's score is distinctive and really quite stirring. The story is exciting enough, with scenes involving encounters with gods and demons and Honor Blackman playing chess with the destiny of men, and moves along briskly, while the dialogue is pretty good on the whole. The direction is solid too, while the acting while nothing outstanding was not bad either. Honor Blackman is both alluring and cunning, while Patrick Troughton and Laurence Naismith are nice additions to the cast. Along with the score, my favour” read more

"Before the world of cinema had Computer Generated Imagery to make fantastical beasts and creatures seems like they could actually be a part our physical world, they had Ray Harryhausen. Now, I know that back in the day, he wasn't the only one using stop motion methods to create what was, in reality, was uncreatable, but it is highly unarguable that he was the guy who mastered the technique. And while the filmography which boatsed his creations is pretty long, it's no doubt that his most famous ("

50 Moments of Cinematic Wonder (50 movies items)

"THE 7TH VOYAGE OF SINBAD/JASON AND THE ARGONAUTS - HARRYHAUSEN'S SKELETONS Nathan Juran's spirited fantasy classic 'The 7th Voyage of Sinbad' was a staple of 80s and 90s UK TV schedules, making it as firm a favourite with my generation as it was with its original 1958 audience. Although Juran officially directed the film, the name more readily associated with this and the subsequent Sinbad films is that of Ray Harryhausen, the legendary visual effects creator whose work is the lynchpin of the s"
