I've been neglectful of my Badmovies.org family of late, but I had to stop by with the sad news of Ray Harryhausen's death at age 92.

Very sad day, but one I knew had to be coming.

RIP Ray.  You have given far more than just enjoyable movies.

The man was a HUGE part of my childhood.  Wherever he is, I hope he knows how happy he made me and so many others.

Wow....what a sad loss! He made so many of my favorite movies and his genius in stop-motion was so ground-breaking. Even my 21 year old daughter,a lover of today's CGI work,grew to really appreciate his innovations. R.I.P.,Ray. Bluesad

      I got to hear him lecture, at Case Western Reserve Univeersity in Cleveland, back in '93. There was a line for autographs afterwards, and I was two people away from him when his wife asked our induklgence; he was tired, and needed to return to the hotel, to rest.

     So close....Thank you, Mr. Harryhausen.

If it's true what they say, that GOD created us in His image, then why should we not love creating, and why should we not continue to do so, as carefully and ethically as we can, on whatever scale we're capable of?

     The choice is simple; refuse to create, and refuse to grow, or build, with care and love.

R.I.P. to one of my personal heroes. A true genius that left a huge mark on filmmaking and movies in general that is still being felt to this date. There will never be another Ray Harryhausen!

What an incredible loss.  Ray was responsible for my favorite creature features.  If not directly, then indirectly by influencing those that made them.  Sitting just above my computer, I can see my DVD collection of his films.  I own several of his books that show that he was a man of boundless imagination.  Every interview he was in seemed to say he was a good, friendly guy as well.  Think I'll plan a movie marathon in his honor.

R.I.P. Ray Harryhausen. His Special FX were the stars of so many truly fun, classic sci-fi and fantasy films. It's largely because Harryhausen put so much into his creations that they became the true stars of those films moreso really than any of the actors and actresses involved and became larger than life personalities on screen.  Bluesad Truly a loss though, there will never be another quite like him.
