5 Fantastic Films of Ray Harryhausen

(Jason and the Argonauts / The Seventh Voyage of Sinbad / The Golden Voyage of Sinbad / Sinbad and the Eye of the Tiger / The 3 Worlds of Gulliver)

You can’t beat the high adventure and awesome harryhausen effects present in these movies. 7th Voyage is classic cinema, with all the elements of a grand adventure, and it only goes uphill from there. Eye of the tiger is very, very 70’s, but still great, and Golden Voyage may be one of the best fantasy films ever produced. Definitely check these out if you have any appreciation for effects genius Harryhausen, or if you’re a fan of fantasy in general. Also appropriate for younger viewers, which is a plus.

I could watch this every day. The Twilight Time blu-ray is fantastic: Mysterious Island never looked this good. It is just one in a long line of Harryhausen masterpieces. Combine Jules Verne with Ray Harryhausen and you’ll have some idea of what this is all about. Too bad his matte paintings were overshadowed by his great stop-motion effects. Nevertheless….
