the3rdmanImperialists go to the moon and murder the native population of Selenites, deposing their monarch.
DieguitoGreat classical short!! Sci-fi and special effects when those words didn't even exist
swhazeHow would this movie have been screened in 1902? Would there have been an orchestra and narrator? I'm just curious. This is the oldest movie I have ever watched!
djgray88Melier's is pretty much the father of modern effects. He actually use to be a successful magician before turning to film making.
zombiecreatureVery unique and original for 1902!
buc86Who knew it snowed on the moon.
SiskoidAhhh, yet another procedural... Likely the first science fiction film, loosely based on Jules Verne's novel, 1902's Le voyage dans la lune (A Trip to the Moon) is a maverick little silent by Georges Méliès that uses all sorts of theatrical and circus tricks to make the journey to a fantastical moonscape inhabited by acrobatic zebra people come to life. I'll admit, I'm not always sure how they did it, which is a measure of how impressive an achievement it still is. It's necessarily light on story, and I don't think it would even have gotten to 13 minutes without the padded scene at the beginning which just seems like an exercise in Méliès getting all his friends (and financiers?) into frame for a group shot. But at that length, can you really afford not to watch this whimsical part of film history? (I was joking about it being a procedural. You found me out.)
newvagueWonderful. I wish it had been longer.

MrCarmadyAverage, Melies has done a lot better. Without the famous shot this would be completely forgettable.
rwjI was impressed with the special effects given that it is from 1902
AeonxulThat was a nice experience. Also the score by AIR was very touching and atmospheric, i would like to know the name of the song titles. If anyone happens to know by any chance, please let me know. Thanks.
MetteWhat a charming french accent :)
I feel like I've just seen the original of countless other films... anyways, it was just ok.
CinemasteI watched the youtube one below first, but (mod-edit: dead link removed) has a clear and watchable picture and it includes the original ending. The music is real bad though :)
