Melier's is pretty much the father of modern effects. He actually use to be a successful magician before turning to film making.

How 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!

Average, Melies has done a lot better. Without the famous shot this would be completely forgettable.

Ahhh, 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.)

I feel like I've just seen the original of countless other films... anyways, it was just ok.

I 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 :)
