On the DVD of 20 Million Miles to Earth there is a different documentary about the career of Ray Harryhausen. It has some different graphics and interviews, but many of the same anecdotes across the timeline of Harryhausen's life. I watched this one on Netflix. What it contains that the other lacks are interviews with filmmakers like Peter Jackson, Steven Spielberg, Tim Burton, and Guillermo del Torro, as well as other effects artists who talk about the influence that Harryhausen's creatures had on them. And Harryhausen speaks for himself quite often.

Ray, te adoro, eres uno de mis ídolos, te debo mucho al igual que millones de chavales, eres un genio irrepetible, un artista único y mereces un mejor homenaje que este documental.

It's just incredible to see the work that Ray Harryhausen did in movies, and they display it in this documentary with great care and excellence. The documentary is only good as its subject, and Ray and his special effects are one hell of an interesting subject for movie lovers. It started to get real grandparent-like with dissing the modern digital effects, just let the old people complain. I'm glad I was able to witness the dedication that Ray Harryhausen put into his animation, simply remarkable.

If you grew up at a certain time and loved fantasy films then Harryhausen held all the good stuff. It's a must see documentary.

Stop motion & Ray Harryhausen fans will likely enjoy this rounded tribute to Harryhausen's career. It's more about his films & his legendary & iconic creatures, rather than an in depth hands on look at how he created his work. Thoroughly enjoyable doc!

A great look inside the man who largely helped the SFX world and inspire many. It's pretty straight forward, they got a lot of directors who was inspired by him like Peter Jackson, James Cameron, and Spielberg. It's definitely worth checking out especially if you are a fan of film and filmmaking.

Criminally conventional and repetitive, but it's a real treat to hear Harryhausen discuss the process in which he made these amazing stop motion visuals.

Fantastic documentary! Well worth a watch by sci-fi or fantasy film fans, or just anyone who loves film or stop-motion animation.
