    "2001: A Space Odyssey is, in my humble opinion, Stanley Kubrick's greatest work. It not only codified everything we believe the future would look like, it also features a great story that would require intensive watching in order to understand. Visually, this movie still holds up and can go toe to toe with the CGI-heavy movies of today. Definitely put this on your to-watch list for the weekend!"

    "Although known mostly for its gripping story about crime and family, Francis Ford Coppola's The Godfather is also notable for its wonderful cinematography. Every frame looks like a master painting with beautiful chiaroscuro lighting. A must-watch for any film-lover."
