Micro men.

One off-drama which looks at how Sir Clive Sinclair took the world by storm in introducing affordable home computers, and the ups and downs of competing in an ever evolving market. This version is not split into 15 minute segments, so can be enjoyed without interruption.

But the real story is how arm was started

Even though this thread is about films, not including any TV series would be quite unfair.

I see Terminator in that list, but there's more than the film series. There was a short-lived but very good TV series too that expanded on that universe beautifully.

There's an ongoing series called Mr. Robot.

It has some good action, philosophical talk about modern society, life, etc. and explores many themes like childhood trauma, drug addiction and mental illness. It has very realistic depiction of computers and hacking (as well as phreaking and social engineering), alludes to many real-life events and has the unavoidable megacorporation (with much similarity to actual tech giants) and its Anonymous-inspired nemesis.

A must watch for all nerds!

And last but not least, there's a fun to watch series of animated shorts created to promote the Overwatch video game.

It's about AI, robots, and Man versus Machine. They remind me of The Animatrix a bit and they're available on YouTube.

Enjoy Wink
