A confusing cross between interesting and dull

Posted : 8 months ago on 23 November 2013 02:52

Although the only thing that happens is a train comes into a station, it is only 50 seconds, although it is dull, it is also interesting as it is one of the first movies ever and is worth a look especially if you're interested in the first movies ever

The World's First Horror Movie

Posted : 2 years, 9 months ago on 7 October 2011 11:49

While tame for today's audiences, The Arrival of a Train at Station may have been the scariest movie ever made. Audiences viewing the film on original release in 1895 where so overwhelmed by the site of a life size training coming directly at them, they fled the the theater screaming in panic that the train was going to run them over.

The film's use of long, medium and close up shots help demonstrate this effect, but today's advanced 3-D technology makes it seem outdated.

Regardless, modern movie viewers should still still enjoy The Arrival of a Train, at Station and witness one of the earliest examples of the power of cinema.

Not the first movie ever, but considered the very first movie ever being shown to the public, by the Lumière brothers who were the pioneers in "making" movies. Their first movie is usually entitled "Workers Leaving the Factory" (filmed at the entrance of the brothers' factory itself).
