What? You guys are crazy. What is this?
You put "/tech/" as everyone is the same. The "/tech/" is a board about technology. The movies talk about technology. Therefore it is a valid thread.
I bet it's a samefag trying to troll. Get out.
I doubt pretty much you don't watch movies. And, even if you don't, suggest some documentary instead of your shit comment.

>Really, though, the movie is more about how the rise of technology impacts our lives, and our changing ideas and concerns about privacy. Bennett was easily seduced by Devlin because he spied on her describing her ideal man in a chat room, and filled in the details by going through her records. As she says, our entire lives are recorded on computers, from our work to our taste in movies. In 1995, this was a shocking problem that people had to learn to deal with. In 2013, it's basically how Facebook works.

Quite frankly if the site had a larger user base or even if /tech had a higher post count then we'd have to worry about off topic discussion and filtration of subject matter to relevant boards, but we don't have that. This is where the concept of an unlimited multi board design fails because discussion gets pushed out into ever reduced niche groups. This is a general tech board, this fits here and that's good enough for now.

Yes. What would be the problem with that?

Because /tv/ is dead, as with most of the boards on endchan.

So, do it, instead of just throw off baseless arguments.

Haven't watched The Net yet. Thanks for your suggestion, hope it's good.

Good list, thanks. There's some I haven't watched.
I recommend you watch the other ones I've point on OP, they are pretty good.

Good for you, buddy. We're all very impressed.

I suppose we ought to add Citizenfour, then. And maybe Snowden, though I haven't seen that one yet.

>Haven't watched The Net yet. Thanks for your suggestion, hope it's good.
Ehhhh, well, good? I mean, it's not going to change your life. It's a fun bit of fluff if you're bored on a Friday night. Plus, Sandra Bullock was a nice piece of ass back then. She was 30 when it was filmed. Malheureusement, le temps detruit tout.

I've seen snowdon, it's shit. Not shit as in terrible as a film it's pretty good. It's shit because it's basically explaining the snowden docs to grandma in the most simplistic way possible. I hoped they might explore the potential of prism and the surveillance like a jason bourne film, but no.

The Circle started with some pretty good criticism of the future of working for a social media companies, and how they are mak8ng the world more totalitarian as they take your right to privacy ans cater to mob rule, while people are stupid enough to embrace their products. I heard the book it was based on ended on more of a downer.

Good call. Also another Sandra Bullock joint from back when dat ass was supremely tappable. I can't find the exact dates of filming, but she was probably 28 when it was filmed.

Oh, I watched the trailer. I've already watched this movie, it's shit.
We should focus on good movies, people.

Boring as fuck and very mislanding. They seem to attack the point of loss of privacy all the movie, to in the end put this point in other subject: the leaders should also have no right to privacy.
Bullshit. The point is not if the leaders of these corporations have privacy or not, the point is that everyone lost the privacy.
For me, this movie is a clear communist message. And I'm not even /pol/.

Nice try. You would be surprised how neuroatypical I'm.
If you think watching Serial Experiments Lain is a neurotypical behavior, then you haven't watch it yourself.

Interstellar was trash, but it's on your list.

Interstellar was trash? Seriously?
C'mon my dear, even most of cinema critics liked it. It touches on many relevant topics about how human perceive time/space and what humans define as "love". It alsa has many symbollism from myths and methaphorical speech.
What "The Net" questions exactly? Nothing. It tries to exposed (very badly, btw) a subculture or emerging computer "hackers". That's it, nothing more.

>Interstellar was trash
It was not, you take that back! You compare it to something like 2001, it's clearly good. And 2001 is basically the bar for space films. Granted I don't think it was the best film ever, nor it should be on a /tech list, but still.

Interstellar was a forgettable piece of matinée fluff designed to make middle-aged housewives feel deep and intellectual instead of sheepish about going home after the movie, having a couple of glasses of chardonnay, and schlicking to the thought of Matthew McConaughey pounding their babymaker.

The physics of the movie was laughable, the /tech/ was an unrealistic and merely convenient plot device, and the movie's facile take on "love" (really, anon?) was cringey new-age gobbledygook.

It was trash as a film, but putting it on a list of "must-watch /tech/ movies" is just nonsense.

Your way of looking into film is realistic and I'm personally against that. The film is not meant to be absolutely realistic (although it has to have a suspension of disbelief if you want people to understand it). Watching a film is just like watching yourself in the mirror, it's a projection and an interpretation.
That said, I'm it was technically correct and, yes, I too find the "love as a dimension" idea a bit too new age, but from my perspective, it is a very good movie. Good screenwriting, good aesthetic, good soundtrack.

Avalon (2001). It's a very powerful movie. Like Matrix, it questions the perceived reality created by human mind. But, unlike Matrix, it does not creates this new "reality". The author let's you imagine what it would be to live in a world more real than that we live now.
I personally don't think that's the case, but it's a good movie.
Like other film such as Truman Show, Inception and Matrix, this one will give you a shift about the way you think.

The book ended with the main character too far gone in drinking the company kool-aid and she turned on the black guy, betrayed him, and supported censorship and ushering in a dystopia without resisting her leaders at the company. I see the film as a more morally grey ending. Her actions resulted in a kind of communist mob rule rather than a dictatorship, and after the film ends there's still a possibility people like her parents will rebel once they see the bullshit in the e-mails of her superiors. No such possibility exists in the book, because the monsters have already won.

I'm not into Christian traditions, but I would recommend something like anything from Ghibli (such as Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind, Princess Mononoke and Howl's moving castle) or Mushishi, if you're into japanese animation (they are trully masterpieces, seriously).
Or, for movies, something like Mr. Nobody, Eternal Sunshine of a Spotless Mind, Gattaca, A.I (2001) and Being There (1979).
If you're into art, watch the Valtari project short-films from Sigur Ros, they are great (you can find on youtube, I recommend "Ekki mukk").
For music, I can recommend you some classics (if you haven't listened it yet) like Gymnopedie (Eric Satie), Adagio for Strings (Samuel Barber), Tristesse (Chopin), Sonata No.3 in B Minor (Chopin), Air on the G string (Sebastian Bach). More modern composers such as Ludovico Einaudi, Hans Zimmer and Adrian von Ziegler have great opus too. Or something calm (or hipster, if you like) such as Bon Iven, Glen Hansard, Aimer, Mogwai, M83, Faun, Oasis, etc.

Just some things I like. Hope you check some of 'em.

Groundhog Day, but actually I hate it. For very /tech/ reasons, I would imagine. Autism.

What I've come upon to watch on Christmas is dystopian satire like 12 Monkeys, Brazil and Repo! The Genetic Opera. They also tend to feature snow quite often which I swear is a coincidence, but the tone is just somehow Christmasy to me. Also possibly for very /tech/ reasons, but I won't get into that.

Christmas inheritance: its about a spoiled heiress(daughter of a CEO) who who has a selfish fiance. Her father forces her to go to a small town to understand where the company started, and she falls in love with the place and an average joe. I've watched a bunch of them because my family likes them, and this one was above average. They're all nice for a change because you know Christmas movies will have a happy ending.
Pic deserves to be a Christmas movie.
