    "Metropolis is an old silent film that takes place in 2026, 100 years in the future from when it was filmed. It is pretty interesting as society is then in two groups one living underground and the other in a wonderful city. The imagery in this film is very artistic and memorable. It is a must-see for true Sci-fi fans, it is the best classic Sci-fi movie."

    "This is a cinema classic and milestone for a very good reason. It's themes stand the test of time, which is remarkable considering how different the world is then and now. The influence in films like Blade Runner is clear; if you liked that, definitely check this out!"
