Old movies also suffer from a lack of conventional color grading. Color grading has almost become part of the grammar and expectations of movies so far, so that if you deviate from it, it looks cheap or old.

Rogue One looks great when it can, but is hampered by the CGI that consumes the movie as it progresses. It starts to become blurry and smudgy, unrealistic. The opening in the field looks fantastic. I don't know if Rogue One overall looks the best though. The Empire Strikes Back has great cinematography too, especially the fight between Luke and Vader.

And? The best movies are the ones that reflect real life.

2001 has themes that move us regardless of where we are in society, without unnecessary postmodern drivel.

Sure, it's matter of opinion. But if you took a film like The Dark Knight or Blade Runner 2049 and removed its color, it would look bizarre. When the blue tinge of Gordon's fakeout death was reduced in the home release, people lost their shit. This demonstrates how effective color grading can be. They go too far by the end, though.

Color grading only showed up in the early 2000's but color timing has been around for some time. Some productions that shoot film still choose to do that instead of a DI, like the dark knight.

Finally, some intelligence.
