Manic Manifesto: ‘In The Clutch Of A Titan’ Remembering Ray Harryhausen

Manic Manifesto

A Tribute to the work of Ray Harryhausen, his Special Effect on me, public imagination, and the film industry. Plus a review of the 2013 UK release of Ray Harryhausen: Special Effects Titan.

“This is Dynamation!”

MYSTERIOUS…

Whenever that spark is reignited, when a distant memory resurfaces, it brings back all the emotions attached and warm sentimentality…

Surprisingly, I was walking through town, past our own chain newsagent to see a huge window display of the latest LEGO Minifigures. Big advertising hoarding passes most people by, with people not registering what they are seeing, unlike the near-future mass explosion advertising found in Transmetropolitan or Minority Report. But I digress… being the big kid I am, this advertising had one character front and centre staring back at me and I said ‘I MUST HAVE IT’. An unexplainable feeling that washes over you that words just couldn’t justify…

The Minifig in question was a Cyclops.

Harryhausen

This week, SNL skewers Google Glass, lots of upcoming gaming news, the FBI’s plan to wiretap web users, iOS 7 is going flat, Facebook and SMS loses millions of users, the world’s first 3D printed gun, and a man who quit the internet for a year (and lived to tell about it)…

Ray Harryhausen and his creatures

Ray Harryhausen, a master of the arts of stop-motion and visual effects in film, has passed away at the age of 92.

Born in 1920, it was when Harryhausen’s parents took him to see the original King Kong in 1933 that he was inspired to become the man that would go on to inspire some of the best this world has ever seen. After the movie he went home and started experimenting with puppets and marionettes to begin honing his skills.

New Kong Movie Based on ‘King Of Skull Island’ On The Way

King Kong

It’s been four years now since Peter Jackson’s 2005 King Kong remake hit theaters. Now comes word that a brand new Kong movie is officially in development through Spirit Pictures. The movie will be based on the book Kong: King of Skull Island which was written by Joe DeVito and Brad Strickland and published in 2005 when Jackson was making his movie.

There’s one thing about this project that is raising some confusion. The initial report by Variety states that the movie is a prequel, telling the story of Skull Island and how Kong came to be king of the island, as well as a deeper look at some of the other creatures we’ve seen residing there. From the book’s outline, it sounds more like a sequel story (taking place in 1957, twenty-five years after the first story) that includes Jack Driscoll, Carl Denham, and Denham’s son, Vincent; with an included backstory that explains the island, Kong, and things like how they built the giant wall and why they built the door big enough for Kong to fit through it.

Click over to the other side to read a more-detailed piece of the story outline that explains what the book is about.

Ray Park & Ray Harryhausen Join ‘The Necronauts’

The Movie God   |  @   |

Ray ParkRay Park will be playing a sword-master sidekick in a new project called The Necronauts, from writer and directed by Kevin Van Hook, who’s doing the movie in conjunction with legendary special-effects master Ray Harryhausen.

Park, who’s best known for his role as the sith Darth Maul in Star Wars: Episode I: The Phantom Menace, as well as Toad in X-Men, will be seen next as Snake Eyes in the live-action G.I. JOE movie; Van Hook did visual work on Daredevil and I, Robot.

The story for The Necronauts will supposedly be a take on the 1963 Jason and the Argonauts, which featured Harryhausen’s pioneering stop-motion work, but more on steroids where the hero and his group venture into Hades to collect a group of the dead and bring the fight to the God of War, Ares.

Not long ago, I craved more Greek Mythology movies… now, I just can’t keep up with them anymore. The last I checked, a movie called War of Gods was coming, a separate new Jason and the Argonauts is still coming I believe, and also, Brett Ratner was planning to piss all over the video game God of War‘s movie adaptation. So there’s no shortage in Greek Mythology movies being planned; whether they actually become a reality or not is yet to be seen. At least Harryhausen will be a part of this new one.
