Please add movies here, please be as specific as possible, e.g the scene where... happens in the first 5 minutes, towards the end...

  • Blade Runner. A classic, featuring replicants, not to mention J.F. Sebastian's toy "friends" --Ahessel 13:16, 7 June 2007 (EDT)
  • EXistenZ (1999, David Cronenberg). The all movie turns around a new type of immersive game, where to play, players must plug a 'pod', a bio-organic gaming device, into a 'bio-port' near the bottom of the spine. --Vincent 15:37, 7 June 2007 (EDT)
  • The matrix - On Morpheus's ship, they eat gruel that is made of a "single-celled protein". This makes no sense, since proteins are a component of cells, not vice versa. --BC 19:26, 7 June 2007 (EDT)
  • GATTACA has lots of biotech and society, no biological machines though - K. Handelsman via mail
  • Andromeda, Farscape and Lexx feature living spaceships. --Ilya 18:57, 11 June 2007 (EDT)
  • Red Planet staring Val Kilmer.

Note that the bases of DNA are (apparently) different on Mars.

"I'm a geneticist. I write code. Like a hacker. Four elements, A-G-T-P, in different combinations. Hacking the human genome. I choose what, I choose where, and your kidneys work, or you grow a sixth finger. I do that... You spot God, lemme know. 'Til then, I'll trust my Ph.D.s.

But don't get me wrong. Even without a Great Pumpkin, life's still great. You gotta seize it with two hands and live it large... Which is why I'm not happy about maybe spending my last hours on this ugly planet." D. Endy via mail
