Lockdown Playlist

With so many of us home confined, we should start collecting a movie playlist for 'borg themed entertainment. Some are gonna be obvious, but maybe we discover, or rediscover, a few gems.

So, to start.
Johnny Mnemonic
RoboCop
Chappie

Iron Man 3 (sorta? He injects trackers into his arms to command his suits)
Gattaca
More Transhumanism than specifically 'borg, but Limitless is cool (and underrated, imo, especially the show)

Some classic anime (mostly) from the golden era? Varying degrees of quality;

  • Parasite Dolls
  • Armitage series
  • Cyber City Oedo
  • Genocyber
  • Neo Tokyo
  • Ergo Proxy

And whilst BLAME! was made into a CGI anime series, I would 300% recommend reading the manga series as well as the mangaka’s other works like ‘NOiSE’ and ‘Aposimz’ … some of the most awesome worlds :ok_hand:

This is recommended way to little in my opinion. It is such a good show.

I went down the rabbit hole tonight, it led me to this.

Their channel has a bunch of thought provoking future ideas. Easy to get lost for a while.
