Netflix has recently added the 1902 classic film, A Trip to the Moon, to its roster and I have to say if you get a chance watch it, due so immediately. This short is nothing short of groundbreaking. The sheer way that is filmed has a cinematic quality that I feel rivals that of major motion pictures filled with beautiful sets, an enthusiastic cast, and a simple plot that develops into an epic tale of human achievement. Theres a psychedelic quality to the film that takes you completely out of the real world and into the world of the explorers and their spacial endeavors. 

Originally created and directed by Georges Méliès in black and white the film has been completely restored and painted with a new soundtrack from the band Air. 

Compare the new version to the original and let me know what you think.
