When a Titan wakes up, you should run, not walk.

I’m sitting here happily watching Jason and the Argonauts (1963) on Turner Classic Movies tonight, one of Ray Harryhausen’s finest works in Dynamation (stop-motion animation).

Even with all the progress that’s been made in movie special effects today, there is something special about stop-motion and the classic films that used it. I’ve been a die-hard fan since discovering their existence as a teenager, and I always will be. They’re magical, unlike the updates and remakes that came after.

Mr. Harryhausen passed away last year at a ripe old age. He went where no man had gone before, and has all my respect, may he rest in peace.
