I also thought of Forbin project, and wargames as a updated play on that film. We should also mention the "big board " scenes in movies such as Fail Safe, and Dr. Strangelove. The board while not active in the horror was compelling in the story. The space movies like Silent Running, and Saturn 3 should also be in the list. Lawnmower man should also have a mention which was somewhat like Johnny Mnemonic along with the ultimate killing of the kernal movies HACKERS. Sci Fi movies are always very good for the mind. The cool part now with computers is that you can find them, and buy them. The Sci Fi, and horror packs from Amazon are very cool, and you can find the old 50's classics like The THING, THEM, Monolith Monsters, Invasion of the Body Snatchers, and anything that else that you have enjoyed in the past. While search engines like Cuil are more like SWILL ,google on the other hand will find anything for you. Google Giant Grasshoppers, and find Beginning of the End. Commenting at places like here is a big reason why the Computer has displaced the TV for those of us from that generation. The exchange of Ideas is what is going to expand the coming generations. Where from mine it was ideas from TV, or Books, the computer today will exceed those mediums.
