Most, if not all of you, will at some stage of your life been read to from a Golden Book. They're a childhood staple. But what if there were Golden Books that, uh, weren't exactly suitable for the little ones?

They'd look like these! Josh Cooley, an artist at Pixar, has been whipping these up in his spare time for the past two years, and they're amazing. Most are pretty self-explanatory - and if I have to tell you the movie, you won't get the joke - but if you're finding yourself lost by most of them, you might want to catch up on your 70's movies. Maybe start with Apocalypse Now and The Graduate.

70s? At least half of these are from the 90s, two are from the 60s, and one is from the 80s. The only 70s films are The Godfather, The Godfather, Part II, and Apocalypse Now. A better assessment would be to suggest watching Coppola's films from the 70s. While there isn't one based on The Conversation if you haven't seen it you should.
