Yikes! They actually released this last month, but I was just made aware of it's existence today. Feast your eyes, true believers, on the 'Ray Harryhausen Gift Set - 20 Million Miles to Earth: 50th Anniversary Edition'! The master of stop-motion model animation, responsible for such classics as 'Mighty Joe Young', 'The 7th Voyage of Sinbad' and 'Jason and the Argonauts' gets his due in this killer set of three of his fantastic films and much, much more.

The six-disc set includes the 3 films: '20 Million Miles to Earth', 'Earth vs. the Flying Saucers' and 'It Came from Beneath the Sea' w/a insane amount of of bonus features and documentaries about each film, including Tim Burton sitting down with Harryhausen to discuss each one. Throw in the mega-cool scaled-down figure of the 20-feet tall YMIR from '20 Million Miles' and you've got one hell of a good time.

I reviewed 'Earth vs.' HERE, but here are the trailers for all 3 flicks anyhow...

Even if you don't buy the set for yourself, all three films are totally worth checking out...and then you buy ME the set, because you love me. Please?
