Mere words are inadequate to express my love, respect and admiration for the work of this one-of-a-kind imagineer. He brought the impossible to life without the benefit of CGI, and much of his work, even though some of it goes back five decades, looks better than state of the art effects. So hail to the stop-motion wizard behind Medusa, the cyclops, the Hydra, Kali, the Ymir and those badassed word-fighting skeletons. Mr. Harryhausen, my world would have been immeasurably empty without you, and for being there I give you my most deeply-felt thanks.
