10 Movies Every Data Scientist Must Watch

10 Movies Every Data Scientist Must Watch

Movies are more than just blockbusters with explosions and superheroes; the central idea of the film is what affects people and instils a concept in their minds.

I have been a movie buff all my life, I have watched almost all the top movies from IMDB and every decent movie from my favourite genres especially science fiction. 

If you will notice, movies are not just a source of entertainment and amusement; they play a critical role in forming our worldview consciousness. In a nutshell, movies educate and propagate ideas in the same manner that a paperback book does today. 

Now, you may ask me how data science and movies are related. Well, they are! There are many amazing movies that showed the use of data science very well, that we might see in the coming future in real life and some are already existing. 

Oh, by the way, do you know Data science is used within the film industry? You must be thinking how Well, Data science is used in a number of ways such as development of films, generating more revenue, improving post- production preventing movie failures, and real-time streaming.

 There are a few films on science and technology that are worth your time, such as biographies, true stories, science fiction, and whatnot.
