Karel Zeman, a legend!

Karel Zeman's astoundingly creative homage to Jules Verne has finally been given the presentation that it deserves, and. fittingly enough, by the Karel Zeman Museum society that perpetuates the legacy of his work in his Czech homeland. Zeman was a pioneering fantasy film maker in the second half of the twentieth century - sort of a cross between Geo. Melies and Willis O'Brien - he blended 2D and 3D animation and live action illusions and characters into fantastic filmic visions. The Karel Zeman Museum has recently released 3 of his most well known and impressive films on DVD.

best-ever DVD transfer of Fabulous World Of Jules Verne!

This new transfer from the Czech Karel Zeman museum is the best transfer of this film that I've ever seen. The image is crystal clear, and the sound is robust. The Czech transfer looks even better than the Japanese DVD release of several years ago, and unlike the Japanese version, has English subtitles as an option!


The Fabulous World of Jules Verne / Vynalez zkazy
A brilliant inventor, Professor Roch, is on the verge of discovering a substance that, in the wrong hands, could destroy the world. Enter Count Artigas, a mysterious and dark adventurer who roams the world's seas in his submarine, sinking ships and using the wealth he acquires to achieve global domination. Artigas kidnaps Professor Roch from a sanatorium and forces him to complete his invention at his base in the crater of the Back Cup volcano. By coincidence, Artigas also kidnaps the professor's assistant, Engineer Hart, who narrates the story and makes every effort to free the professor and prevent catastrophe. Eventually, Hart sends a balloon up through the volcano's crater with a message to humanity, which unites to thwart Artigas's plans just in the nick of time, as their naval fleets prevent disaster.
