Don’t spoil anything
Back in 2012-2014, the team’s favorites were The Princess Bride, Wargames, and Short Circuit. In recent years, Top Gun and Spare Parts head the list.
If you are going to use the movie to spur discussion, Apollo 13 and October Sky are great because you can use them to both talk about technical topics as well as generic teambuilding and leadership topics.
Jason Bourne kills batman
Batman kills himself
Definitely Black Panther.
The company I worked at reserved a bunch of theatres for one night, for the employees
The team/club actually started with full size electric vehicles and then moved into FRC in 2002. The team likes to branch out to other competitions besides FIRST so they competed in MATE in 2004 and won it. Without derailing the thread, more info can be found here.
As far as the Spare Parts movie goes, while it does have some creative input from Hollywood, it’s actually pretty accurate in many details and events that happened!
Real Steel : Hugh Jackman reconnects with his son through the medium of fighting robots.
Robots (the animated one with Robin Williams)
Truman Show (that was a fun time)
basically any movie is a good team bonding time and I highly suggest it
Great thread. I’ve been working on this list for years. Here’s my favorites, though not all FRC related, and you may want to clear a few before showing to kids:
Back to the Future
A League of their own
The Perfect Storm
The Day After Tomorrow
Air Force One
Catch me if you can
Pirates of Silicon Valley
Batteries Not Included
Stand and Deliver
School of Rock
Saving Private Ryan (Warning, very sad)
My Cousin Vinny
The Social Network
White House Down
Olympus Has Fallen
I Am Sam
The Pursuit of Happiness
I agree with Hidden Figures
Short Circuit is the correct answer. Johnny 5 lives on!
Moneyball is a good one, especially if your scouting team is there.
Meet the Robinson’s is a fun movie
I feel like A fits many teams we all have those random objects for us it was christmas lights
Instead of watching movies I would just make a 2 hour compilation of my favorite frc memes cuz that’s like 1000x better.
Woh. Haven’t seen that one in a while.
I think it depends on the team but Spider is a great story and would be a great pick
