Vynález zkázy (The Fabulous World of Jules Verne)(A Deadly Invention) Reviews
"The Fabulous World of Jules Verne" is an entertaining film that is partially animated(through the wonders of 'Mysti-Mation!). This process works for the most part, even though the underwater scenes are a little underwhelming. Even then, the movie conveys as well as possible the rapidly changing world that Verne was experiencing on a daily basis in the 19th century. At the same time, it also anticipates what would come to be known as steampunk.
It was a masterpiece of animation/live action created in a format called "Mystimation". The look of this film was intended to be in the same idea as the pen and ink drawings that were present in some versions of Vern's works. I loved it, and I watch it from time to time for the fond memories of a time when your imagination was the special effects of the day. Films the like of this one are gone forever and will never return. The story told by the film isn't as important as the time and place it was viewed. I hope all you Scifi movie folks get to see this treasure at least once.
liked the music as a protosynthetizer punkindustrialnoise.. yea
