Revisiting 'A Trip To The Moon' (1902)
What's really funny is that the rocket landed on his ORBITAL BONE! (no seriously)
Genre: Silent Sci-Fi Adventure Fantasy Short (France)
Starring: Victor André, Bleuette Bernon
Directed By: George Méliès (The Magic Of Méliès • The Hallucinations of Baron Munchausen)
Overview: A group of scientists plan a trip to the moon, and build a giant cannon to carry the explorers to that new frontier.
"Have you ever seen a more classic image than the one above? This is over a century old. Film is now antiquity, and nothing will ever be more representative of its genre than this."
"[The Explorers'] reaction to what they find when they get to the moon is a comical yet frightening social commentary. To think that technology has already taken us this far and a 1902 film gives us perspective on the inherent and irrational fear that lives in our human nature. This film is more than a neat little story, it actually opens your eyes a little bit."
In the early days of space travel, explorers made exclusively use of the 'Space Condom'.

Overall Rating: 76% (One Hell Of A Trip Indeed!)
I've done the math. If I seriously intend to complete this mission of mine, reviewing one '1001 Must See Movies' film a week (on average) I'm left with at least 12 years of work, not including new editions of the Grand Tome and not including re-reviews like this one.
You know, it's not disheartening.
It's my Trip to the Moon.
