I need enough points for both a premium membership and a supergroup option for one of my groups (as well as find a way to allow group members to submit without me doing it for them). So for all those of you out there that support me and like my work, please help me out.

Sorry if this sounds selfish.

Here I am today to review a classic science fiction novel from 1864. Written by Jules Verne, Journey to the Center of the Earth is one of the most well known adventure stories, having a similar feel to Arthur Conan Doyle's The Lost World.

It's about a German professor named Otto Lidenbrock who believes there are volcanic tubes going toward the planet core. He, his nephew Axel, and their guide Hans descend into the Icelandic volcano Snæfellsjökull, encountering many adventures, including prehistoric Animals and natural hazards, before eventually coming to the surface again in southern Italy, at the Stromboli volcano.

Even though modern science has proven that Verne's ideas about the interior of the world are incorrect, it still manages to captivate audiences when regarded as a classic fantasy-type novel. I recently red the book myself and its better than I thought.

There have been quite a few movie, game and TV series adaptations of this story, almost all of them changing the original story. One from 1999 lies to us with a Carcharodontosaurus and pack of some kind of Raptor on the cover, but in the movie, there are none, only some Pterosaurs, Lizard-humanoids and a made up Mosasaur/Iguana-like Reptile called a "Reptosaur" (claiming to be from the Late Triassic and Early Jurassic). Another from 1959 only features Dimetrodon (portrayed by Iguanas in costumes) and a "fire monster" (portrayed by a Moniter Lizard). There are tons more and the most recent movie made was in 2008 with Brendan Fraser and was supposed to take place after the expedition by Lidenbrock (followed by its sequel about The Mysterious Island).

I hope that one of these days they make an adaptation that follows the original story exactly. Heck, Japan could make an anime on it if possible!
