Journey to the Center Of The Earth
Posted by: admin In: Movie
Jules Verne is my shah of science-fiction and science authors date from my childhood. Everything he dreamed nearly came true. Like Nautilus “the nuclear submarine” or “The Moon Rocket”…
The only book stands as a dream “Journey to the Center of the Earth” came to our cinemas this year with 3 dimensional effects.
There were skies, earth and inner world at thousand years ago’s world drawings. These dimensions which formed with layers each of them were agreed with the world origined universe for a long time.
Later when it was proved that the world moves around the sun, the center world info and inner world, lower layers info on this model were left. The world became terrestrial globe for everyone.
Wheras the continents are swimming islet on magma for scientists. Also the ocean cushions are on this magma layer too. Ok, what about more inside? As a result we couldn’t go center of the world but science has so strong observations that the inside of the planet can be nearly guessed. The center is also the source of the magnetic area.
I think you heard a lot of mind-expander questions like “what happens if it is gone past from Istanbul to China inside the world and is furnished a tube?”. Could the person who fell to the center with the impact of gravity go to the other side?
The book Jules Verne wrote in 1864 “Voyage au centre de la Terre” tells the story of a scientist’s adventure who used a deflated volcano and went into the center of the world in Iceland.
He sees dinosaurs, legendary ambiences standing from arcaic ages. I read this book like i am reading a fairy tale and i should confess this to see this film on cinema impressed me too much.
Brendan Fraser (Prof.Trevor Anderson), we know him from entertaining movies like “The Mummy”, Josh Hutcherson (Sean Anderson), Anita Briem (Hannah Asgeirsson) plays leading roles in this movie.
The process of the events are so entertaining and doesn’t give a chance to breath. Anyway you know that i am a 3d glass crazy. It is a crazyness that i created www.3dgozluk.com and told a lot of photos, videos and technique in it.
When we heard that we would have a chance to watch this extraordinary theme with 3d, of course we went to the cinema. 3 dimensional effects were incredible on this Real D supported movie.
We, the moviegoers, jumped from our seats, tried to catch the objects in the air. We laughed very much mostly because of delight.
Shortly if you have a chance please watch this movie with 3d, you will get a new experience.This is not like the photos which are looked with 3d glasses.They mostly get a image into to the picture. The polarize glasses’ that given to you before the movie functions are very different. They aren’t like the blue/red or red/green glasses that we know.
The problems i saw:
1) I wondered if the glasses get an UV cleaning?You braek bulk and use it and they collect them again. No you aren’t allowed to get them home. That’s why i wonder if they get a cleaning for hygiene.
2) If you already use a glass you have to put it on your glass. And it is not so wide so it sticks on it. I said ” i wish would have got my lens, how did i forget?” for a second. But it wasn’t bad as i thought. You can watch it with your own glasses too.
The stereoscopic 3d technology that was used in Beowulf, Chicken Little, Monster House etc…
With an artless expression; the images that are seen by left and right eyes polarized for one image and played in a very fast speed (like 72 images in a second). The polarized glasses that the movigoers use seperate regularly so that two eyes see different images (and make the image become a false 3d). DLP projectors are used mostly for this technology.

How is the center of the earth by an academic perspective?
There are a lot of ways which were thought and tried to go to the center of the earth. You can read Japanese scientists’ “using the oceans cushions that the outer layers of the earth are very thin”. Project by this address:
According to a scientific theory that was suggested recently the middle of the world is hexagonal. Click to read this very very interesting and revolutional theory in Geography (with a simple English):
How the movie was filmed?
On the net site http://www.journey3dmovie.com/ you can get a lot of fabulous infos about this movie. It is really a great site. For example by clicking the “behind the scene” button (at left top) you can see
the videos that how the filming was made. Especially you will see that the cast role in front of blue curtains even they fell from high, fell into the water or swam in the water. And all these scenes were filmed with 3d cameras. After that the CG designers created the background with computers.
And one more thing, don’t be scared from sound effects coming from site while surfing on the net.
Especially take atention the dinosaur’s, the sound was very up in my computer and suddenly i splashed.
When you click the book icon (in the middle) you can open the photo gallery. There are wallpapers
and screensavers too in same menu. For example one of them is that:
The entertaining site of “Asgeirsson Progressive Volcanology Institute” which appears in the film:
The Runic Alphabet
If you haven’t read the book yet i think you will read it. Anyway you will see this coded writing. If you want to explore this coded writing i’ll suggest wikipedia to you.
The comics of the book
Formerly the comics were made to make people love classic novels, because there wasn’t so film technology. You can read the comics of the book by cliking here: http://www.tkinter.smig.net/ClassicsIllustrated/JourneyCenterEarth/index.htm
You can click the picture instead of ” the next button”.
The game of the book
It was released by Nintendo:
It was also made by adapting from the book before the movie filmed in 2003. It wasn’t so good that the players gave 6/10. These are the advertisement links of this first game:
This isn’t the first trying of Hollywood of course.You can see the first movie filmed in 1959 here:
