I'm looking for some examples of popular movies that cast technology, specifically networking technology, in a good (or at the very least a non-paranoid) light.
I'm working for a professor who is writing a paper on cyberspace and culture. She's looking for examples of how the Internet and other networking technologies (like cell phones, GPS, RFID tags, etc...) are represented in popular movies. Unfortunately, the only examples she can come up with are movies that are paranoid and/or pessimistic about networking technology. The examples she gave were Enemy of the State
, The Matrix
and The Net
But what she wants are some examples from all the viewpoints, positive, negative, neutral or some mixture of the three. That's why I'm turning to you guys for help. I have virtually no knowledge about movies. The best example I could come up for something positive was You've Got Mail
. There have to be better movies out there for her to use as examples, please help!
PS> The more realistic the movie (i.e. not so much science-fiction or fantasy based), the better
PPS> I've gotten her permission to do this, so she's under no illusions about where the answers are coming from.
