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..

"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"

Jason and the Argonauts

“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-epic should feel like. In a career filled with memorable and unique monstrous creations, Jason and the Argonauts is the definitive piece of an artistic master. The various stop-motion creations are doled out in a steady drip here, beginning with imposing Talos and ending with the one-two punch of the snapping hydra and the band of marauding skeletons. These creatures terrorize various characters a” read more
