Hello world, my name is Francisco, fcoterroba on the Internet and today I am writing a post similar to last week's, which in case you haven't read it, I highly recommend it! It's about series for technology and computer lovers
Just like I wrote the previous one, I also write this one so that now that summer begins, you can relax by watching series and movies from your favorite field! 👨🏻💻
And as I said last week, in this post you will see several films, but it is not a top, it is not in order, I don't like one more than another, I simply recommend seeing them all 👀
Ready Player One It is the first film that I am going to recommend that, although not expressly related to computing, is related to technology. 🪐
Ready Player One was originally a novel that my friend, teacher and mentor made us read in class. M. ´Ángel Ronda. Since then, I became even more interested, if possible, in the world of technology and computing. (Recommended reading) 📖
Years later, the film of the same name came out, quite faithful to the novel.
Directed by Steven Spielberg, written by the author of the novel and with actors such as Olivia Cooke and Tye Sheridan. The film honors a utopian future in which reality, speaking plainly, is a 'pain in the ass' and life has been reduced to playing and connecting all day to Oasis, a virtual reality world with the freedom to do whatever. what you wanted
The goal of the movie is to find three easter eggs (keys) that the creator of the video game has placed somewhere on the infinite map. Whoever gets these three will become, under contract, the owner of Oasis.
I've never seen it on VOSE, but it's great in Spanish.
Ex Machina is a 2015 British science fiction film, written and directed by Alex Garland in his debut in these film positions.
The film tells the story of Caleb, a programmer from a fictitious company who receives, as a result of a raffle, the prize of paying a visit to the company's uptight president, who claimed to need help in a new artificial intelligence and robotics project. .
That film received the Oscar for best visual effects that year. Worth.
Here I leave you the trailer dubbed into Spanish, which has nothing to envy of the original version.
El Círculo is a 2017 American science fiction drama film, which, although written and directed by James Ponsoldt, is based on the novel of the same name by Dave Eggers.
The Circle is a fictitious company, similar to Google that hires Mae Holland (Emma Watson) as another programmer. What she perhaps didn't know was that The Circle's politics, the boundary between the network and the personal, was practically transparent.
Mae must gradually get to know the company closely and will try to establish the points, establishing a close relationship with the director of the company, played by Tom Hanks.
Here I leave you the trailer ⬇
Los Becarios is a 2013 American comedy directed by Shawn Levy, written by Vince Vaughn and Jared Stern, and produced by Vaughn and Levy.
The Interns is a film about two commercials for a former watch company, which, unfortunately, goes bankrupt.
Our two protagonists need to continue working and then they think of Google, which interviews them and they go to a fictitious phase in which they spend an entire summer with another group of people, having to pass a series of tests, events and phases with in order to be the best team and be able to have a guaranteed full-time job in said company.
Piratas de Silicon Valley is a film written and directed by Martyn Burke. Based on the book “Fire in the Valley: The Making of a Personal Computer” by Paul Freiberger and Michael Swaine.
The film is about the history of the two largest technology companies in the world, in their beginnings, when everything was garages. Back in the 70s, the final scene being the toast on Steve Jobs' famous birthday, when he was fired from the company he set up himself.
Movie 100% recommended, although computing takes a backseat and the drama and the story that occurs come into action.
Her is a 2013 American science fiction romantic drama film written, directed, and produced by Spike Jonze.
In the story we see Theodore Twombly (played by Joaquin Phoenix), a rather lonely man who works as a writer who sees his heart broken after a long relationship married to the woman he loved (Amy Adams).
After this, you will discover an advanced operating system based on artificial intelligence that will try to get closer and learn more about the world and the user who uses it.
Actually, computing is in a very minor place, but it is a drama that must be seen at least once in a lifetime.
La red social is a biographical film directed by David Fincher in 2010.
This film, probably the most famous in the post, tells the story of Mark Zuckerberg (played by Jesse Eisenberg) creating Facebook.
The film is quite faithful to reality, from that anecdote in Mark's room at Harvard to all the judicial trials that the creator of Facebook has had to go through at 36 years old.
100% recommended both in VOSE and folded. Received the number one spot as the best film of 2010 in magazines Rolling Stone, Metacritic, Washington Post, The New York Times y Los Angeles Times.
And that's all for today guys 😁. Leave me your movie recommendations in the comments, as well as those that you have signed up for the list to see! 👀
