THE BEST ENGINEERING MOVIES

December 22, 2011


THE BEST ENGINEERING MOVIES

My wife and I love a good movie although we have some differences when defining the word “good”.  She generally leans towards spy vs. spy thrillers and light-hearted movies involving interpersonal relationships; i.e. “chick-flicks”.  I like more Si-Fi and action-filled yarns involving mechanical equipment and battlefield scenes.  I will purchase a ticket to a grade “B” movie just to see the animation and computer graphics.  I am absolutely amazed at the processes that must be involved in making a movie such as “Transformers”.  Hour upon hour of computer work necessary to bring about this type of movie to the “big screen”.  How the actors interact with the animation is truly fascinating to me.  With this being the case, what do you think are the very best “engineering” movies?  The ones that demonstrate equipment designs having come about due to significant engineering effort and program management planning.  Given below is my list.

  • “Minority Report”
  • “The Right Stuff”
  • “October Sky”
  • “Apollo 13”
  • “Transformers”
  • “Iron Man”
  • “Terminator”
  • “Star Wars”
  • “Flight of the Phoenix”
  • “Alien”
  • “Mission Impossible”
  • “2001-A Space Odyssey”
  • “James Bond”
  • “District 9”
  • “Close Encounters of the Third Kind”
  • “Back to the Future”
  • “ET”
  • “The Day the Earth Stood Still”
  • “The Matrix”
  • “Blade Runner”
  • “Cowboys and Aliens”

I’m sure you can add several I have forgotten or probably not seen.  Having five grandchildren, I also get a generous “dose” of kid-type animated movies that are just as impressive as the ones listed above.   The hardware and software needed to provide content is tremendously impressive.  If you have the time, make your own list.

    Wonderful blog! Do you have any tips and hints for aspiring writers?
    I’m planning to start my own website soon but I’m a little lost on everything.
    Would you propose starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so
    many choices out there that I’m completely overwhelmed ..
    Any suggestions? Kudos!

      Hello Link. I certainly read the book and felt it was an excellent example of “word-smithing””.” Lenord has a way of linking thoughts that is somewhat unconventional but effective. This is the first Lenord book I have read so I don’t have too much perspective on his total works. This is the reason I included comments from other readers. Most were complementary but there were a few that were not that impressed with this one. Many thanks for taking a look at my site. Take care. B

    Thanks for discussing your ideas in this article. The other point is that when a problem appears with a laptop motherboard, people today should not have some risk connected with repairing the item themselves for if it is not done properly it can lead to permanent damage to all the laptop. It is usually safe to approach your dealer of a laptop for your repair of that motherboard. They will have technicians who’ve an expertise in dealing with mobile computer motherboard issues and can make right prognosis and accomplish repairs.
