Le Voyage dans la lune (A Trip to the Moon) 1999,  Unrated)
Le Voyage dans la lune (A Trip to the Moon)
This film may be over 100 years old but it is a masterpiece. It is incredibly imaginative and well ahead of it's time. It was very funny, maybe because of their lack of knowledge at the time. I thought that the special effects were very well done especially when they were fired into the moon's eye - very funny!

The Great Train Robbery 1903,  Unrated)
The Great Train Robbery
The first ever western - over 100 years old and still an amazing film. I can't begin to imagine what it must have been like to watch this at the time when cinema, especially films with a plot, was not at all commonplace.
