Great Documentary about Iconic Movies
4 December 2019 | by royhectorkabanlitSee all my reviews

THE MOVIES THAT MADE US SEASON ONE REVIEW

Only four episodes in the first Season, but they are all pretty good, some of the most iconic movies of all time.

I'm a bit disappointed that most of the big stars didn't appear in the documentary about their movies, but it didn't really detract from the stories behind the movies because they got most if not all of the Creative Staff anyway.

Looking forward to the second season.
