Not That Impressive Compared To Melies 1902 Film
29 March 2011 | by (Isle Of Bute , Scotland) – See all my reviews

MOONLAND is a 1926 film with two directors about a young boy who has a dream about visiting the moon . Where it probably exceeds is capturing the imagination of childhood where innocent fantasy and nightmare horror overlap . The trip proper involves the protagonist travelling through the lunar landscape and because space probes hadn't been invented yet there's a large amount of artistic license involved with landscapes very similar to something Salvador Dali had thought up

Where MOONLAND fails is that there's a genuine lack of Wow factor involved . Compare this movie to LA VOYAGE DANS LA LUNE directed by Georges Melies in 1902 , a film that had audiences gasping " How did he do that ? " on its release . MOONLAND also lacks Melies grotesque sense of humour which means it was destined for obscurity . That said I have seen worse films due to university film classes
