I like Ray Harryhausen. I like the man (met him a few times) and I like his work. Even in these days of CGI and smooth matte work, his cinematography is influential and inspiring, and he's a skilled artist too. So why the low score? Well, this is an obvious attempt to advertise the new Harryhausen Institute, using a get together of some of the top film makers at its launch. As film makers, this lot should know what comes over on camera. While the archive material is cracking, and the interview material informative, these big Hollywood names come over as sycophantic fan boys, smacking a bit of being disingenuous. It's obvious they're not when you see their work back to back with Harryhausens, but that's what comes across. I'm glad I have this, as a good record of the mans work, but could do without the back slapping.
