Dopers-- here’s your chance to influence TV history! An extremely microscopic portion of it!
I will be on TechTV on April 26. TechTV is a channel about, duh, technology, mostly computers. I’ve been on a couple of times before (see my previous appearances here), talking about bad science in movies.
The theme for the next show is Fear of Tech. I am trying to think of movies that feature some sort of tech paranoia which I can talk about, mostly to point out the errors.
A few that come to mind are “The Matrix” (using people for power is a huge waste of energy), “Capricorn 1” (which I can use to make fun of the Moon hoax), and maybe “Colossus: The Forbin Project” (a great 60s flick in which a supercomputer takes over the world’s nuclear weapons).
I am looking for a list of movies I can use on the segment, and I figured Dopers would know some good ones. I need to have seen the movies already (which of course you can’t know, but I’ll winnow the list that way) and they need to be out on DVD so the producers of the show can edit them. I need to make sure the list gets sent to the folks there by April 17.
So, what say you?
