Celebrating the Horror, Fantasy & Science Fiction Films of 1964, Cinefantastique re-examines Ray Harryhausen’s classic adaptation of the H.G. Wells novel. Read the retrospective review here: http://cinefantastiqueonline.com/2014/07/first-men-in-the-moon-50th-anniversary-review.

Fifty years ago, special effects maestro Ray Harryhausen took movie-goers on a memorable trip to the moon – a half decade before Neil Armstrong actually reached the lunar surface. Can the cinematic adventure survive not only the test of time but also the incursion of scientific reality, which has debunked the popular notion of life on the moon as a quaint fantasy? The answer is yes: Despite its flaws, FIRST MEN IN THE MOON remains a charming entertainment that stirs our Sense of Wonder with its fantastic imagery, lifting us out of mundane reality and transporting us into an alternative world of the imagination. via CFQOnline
