This is adorable-I just wish there was more!
7 October 2011 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

I noticed that the other reviewer compared "Moonland" to Georges Méliès' film "A Trip to the Moon" (1902). This is a pretty fair comparison but I wouldn't say that one film necessarily better than the other--they are both quite good. However, I would say that "A Trip to the Moon" is a movie that was MUCH more ahead of its time when it debuted. For 1902, it was eye-popping amazing. "Moonland" is more sweet--and its effects, though generally better than those in 1902, don't seem all that advanced in 1926.

The film involves a little boy who dreams that he and his dog go on a magical trip to the moon. There, they meet a few odd characters as well as the Man himself--whose head is disembodied! But, he's a nice guy and they talk. He gives the boy his boat to use--and gives him a warning. You'll have to see where it all goes from there.

This is a very special film--exceptionally sweet and entertaining. However, it's way too brief and I would have LOVED to see this hashed out into a full-length film. Charming and made with a nice loving touch. I am not sure why this film isn't more famous--it sure deserves to be.
