    all the DOUCHEBAG USERS who mocked this movie should be banned forever from this community. You all watch movies just because of people like the Lumiers. Shame on you, unrespectful morons! 7 years 11 months ago

    It was powerful stuff when it first came out. Audiences literally jumped from their seats because they thought the train was going to come right through the screen. It's the earliest example of the power of cinema. 10 years 8 months ago
