10 Movies Every Tech Geek Must See
Are you a tech geek who can’t live without technology both at work and in your leisure times? If you are,then this techy movie list is made for people just like you.
1. The Matrix
Forever changing what was possible in tech movies, directors Lana and Andy Wachowski present a dark, startling dystopian future in The Matrix. Think underground flying ships, evil machines and portals that connect humans to a simulated reality.
Of course, The Matrix also features film’s most famous computer programmer, Neo, who leads a rebellion against the oppressive machines. The film is now an icon of science fiction, largely because it doesn’t sidestep the moral and philosophical implications of the technology at hand.
2. 2001: A Space Odyssey
The classic 1968 film 2001: A Space Odyssey explores every tech-lover’s nightmare scenario: what if the computer fights back?
The interaction between the all-knowing computer HAL and the space ship’s crewmembers is one of the most memorable conflicts in all of science fiction. HAL is aware of and fights for its own existence.
For years, techies have debated whether intelligent computers could ever gain a form of consciousness. 2001 puts the idea to the test. The film’s intriguing premise laid the groundwork for big screen self-identifying computers, such as the android Data in Star Trek: Next Generation.
