I missed the Prestige, Chuck. It was fairly recent (2006). As a Bowie and Tesla fan, I really have to go take a look at that one.

Since you brought up Nikola Tesla, Rob, here's a movie that includes him as a character: It's called The Prestige, and David Bowie (yes, that David Bowie) plays Tesla.

Thanks for the link, Chuck. I'll have to check out the movie. I didn't realize Tesla's leader looked so young. He picked a great name for his car company. There's a world of engineers out there who believe Tesla's ideas were more significant than Edison's.

I think it came out about a year and a half ago, Rob. For what it's worth, my review:

I take it this is a documentary, Chuck. Is it recent?

Musk is the CEO of Tesla and the founder of SpaceX. Kind of a real-life Tony Stark.

Wow, that one sure missed my radar. I don 't even know who Elon Musk is. It's time for a remake. Electric cars will certainly be looking for revenge when the subsidies go away.

Here's another one, Rob -- Revenge of the Electric Car. It has its share of engineering and it has Elon Musk. The scenes with Musk are the movie's best.

Chuck, 

Astronaut Farmer is kind of a strange movie that doesn't quite work. But yes, it could been seen as an engineering movie.
