My father was a computer engineer but I don't remember him liking anything specifically related to that field. He like war movies dealing with airplanes (his eyesight prevented him from joining the Army Air Corps) such as "12 O'Clock High", "Command Decision" and "Dawn Patrol" plus "Bridge on the River Kwai" (he would always quote Jack Hawkins trying to recruit William Holden into joining his commando outfit). Plus various films by Fritz Lang, Howard Hawks and Ingmar Bergman. He laughed when I told him about the SCTV skit where Count Floyd gets a copy of "Hour of the Wolf", thinking it's a horror film and during the commercials finally saying it was terrible.
