1001 Movies in Chronological Order
#1
I've had an edition of the ever popular '1001 Movies To See Before You Die' for the last decade. This edition specifically...

[Image: 42272350854_b74712ce19_o.jpg]

I've ticked off movies as I've seen them and it's helped point me towards some great stuff but I've only seen just over 300 of them. So I've decided to work my way through chronologically, in an effort to challenge myself to see all the many obscure ones that I've skipped over. It'll also be interesting to see how film techniques we take for granted emerged over the last century.

This might be a pretty tough challenge as many of these movies are possibly not easily available. But in the last few years a lot of early silent movies have been lovingly restored, so it's easier than it was Smile.

A Trip To The Moon (1902)
Director: Georges Méliès
Country: France
Length: 14 minutes
Type: Silent, Sci-Fi, Fantasy

I'd seen many pieces of it before, mostly in Scorsese's 'Hugo' but never watched the whole thing. I found a nice HD version of the restored colour cut on YouTube...



...with a fantastic soundtrack provided by Air.

The VisFX are still impressive and really are like magic tricks. Many techniques are invented here and still used today. However, sometimes it was frustrating to watch as things like POV shots, closeups, zooms etc aren't there. This is all locked-off wide shots, so it's like watching an elaborate stage show. Except with a stage show you have the benefit of sound and voice to help you understand where to look. Not here, stuff just happens and if you aren't looking at the right part of the frame, tough you missed it and you missed that part of the story. It'll be interesting to see this side of film craft develop in "future" movies.

^ That's a great film. I like that it is like watching a stage show. I'm not really a fan of the audio in the version you posted.

Though the film was "silent" it was typically shown with a narrator and live music. Anything period appropriate would be fitting. The audio track in the version you posted is strangely contemporary. The video is beautiful, but with the newer score, the whole thing feels off.

Here on some notes on the music that Méliès had commissioned not long after release:

I can't seem to find a version with that offhand, but this seems a bit better:

^ I like that. It's almost got a John Williams feel which is good for Sci-Fi.

The Great Train Robbery (1903)
Director: Edwin S. Porter
Country: USA
Length: 12 minutes
Type: Silent, Western



This feels quite close to a modern documentary, or like a staged news-reel. The composition of shots and mostly realistic acting gives it an authenticity. The location scenes still look great, although the set bound stuff looks pretty fake (No more so than some recent CGI blockbusters though :-D). It is also surprisingly violent (In pre-code days, perhaps not so surprising) with people being koshed and shot, heads being mashed in with rocks and innocent bystanders being shot in the back. It ends with an iconic closeup of a gunmen firing out at the audience, which must be an early example of the "jump scare".

2001 is a slow movie IMO but it's not that bad.


Started watching 'Birth of a Nation'. A 3-hour rascist silent epic... this should be "interesting".

I said "movies."


And yes, it is. :p
