>>321336>What are the must see Ray Harryhausen movies
My personal favorites are Mighty Joe Young (although not a pure Harryhausen movie), Mysterious Island, First Men in the Moon, and The 7th Voyage of Sinbad. Maybe The Valley of Gwangi too. I have to say that I'm not that big of a Harryhausen fan anymore though. The Dynamation process might have made stop-motion animation affordable, but I don't think it looks as good as the earlier animation. Willis O'Brien's animation might have been less smooth, but I still feel like his work has more character and also had the benefit of having other artists supporting him in his earlier projects and building nice scenery (although from what I remember Harryhausen reading had help building at least some of his models). Dynamation streamlined the process and placed more importance on projected images, but I think it's also less interesting. And it might sound like I'm missing the point, but a lot of the movies are pretty generic once you take the special effects out of the equation.
I think the two most recommended ones would be Jason and the Argonauts and The 7th Voyage of Sinbad. The Beast from 20,000 Fathoms has some historical value and might be worth watching in that regard. I haven't even seen it though.>which ones can be skipped?
The 3 Worlds of Gulliver and the latter two Sinbad movies don't seem essential. I can't say whether they're any good or not, but they seem like they're definitely some of the least talked about. The 3 Worlds of Gulliver isn't really notable for having interesting creatures or anything either.
