I think you should name a few movies to get this thread started, but IMHO Harryhausen is the master of the stop-motion photography.

Just watch Jason and the Argonauts

I acknowledge this guy's huge impact on special effects and all, but I have never actually seen any of his trademark films... Does that make me a lesser being?
But in spite of this- I am the only person I know (and I do know myself) who has gotten the homage in Monsters Inc.

I think I've seen Jason and the Argonauts; it was a long time ago though. That was the one with the fighting skeletons?

Yes it was. One of his classic sequences. I've seen it many times. (the sequence, not the movie)

Earth vs the Flying Saucers, while not having the best acting, had some spectacular effects.  Harryhausen made those saucers come to life in a way no movie had ever done before it, and in some ways,even since then.

Jason and the Argonauts, another great film, along with The Beast from 20,000 Fathoms, are also favorites, along with It came from beneath the sea, and Mysterious Island.

I remember noticing when I say it in the theater, but I can't remember what it was now. Care to refresh my memory?

Oh, and "Jason and the Argonauts" rocks the casbah.  big grin
