A Trip to the Moon aka La voyage dans la lune [1902]

**insert visual of a space rocket hitting the moon in the eye**

The version I watched was a restored, hand-coloured one and I can see why it is so loved, and so influential. Not much to the story; scientists arrange to launch a rocket to the moon and back, but you can tell it's peppered with pretty humorous, archaic anecdotes about space travel given what we know about it today! Well worth a watch; though it's impossible to measure it against modern day blockbusters. Would still recommend.
