FRC Movie Night: What do you show?

If you were able to organize a movie night for your team, and could show only one movie (after the obvious, obligatory story of Dean Kamen, Slingshot), what movie would you choose?

Tonight after our team meeting, I re-watched From the Earth to the Moon, Episode 5, Spider (https://www.imdb.com/title/tt1379361/?ref_=ttep_ep5). I think this is what I would choose.

The Dr. Parameter video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JaK3u5brNKg) is good, but too short for a real movie night. I think this 1-hour episode does a great job of showing what real world engineering looks like, while at the same time telling a great story as part of our journey From the Earth to the Moon.

Apollo 13.

Surprisingly enough, back many moons, it was shown as a team social at one of the regionals.

The other good option: Spare Parts.

I second Spare Parts. The team it features has evolved into an FRC team, from what I understand.

It’s a little more complicated than that. @Rangel, you want to cover or do we wake up Fredi?

The Emoji Movie hands down best emotion from actors I’ve ever seen in a movie.

I saw on Twitter one team had reserved an entire theatre for watching Endgame together. I thought that was a brilliant idea. Maybe next time there’s something big and iconic…

My old team watches Top Gun… cause, uh, our team’s named Top Gun… :thinking:

:eyes: Top Gun 2 should be coming out just in time for the end of the 2020 season!

Top Gun

Interstellar

Not only does it deal with physics in a very real way, including relativity, but is has perhaps the BEST movie robot of all time in TARS. I lobbied our team to use that as our name this year.
