TelePresence Almost Done...

But before it's finished:

I've got a Los Angeles teenager in the late 21st century who is fond of old fantasy and science fiction films. I need a list of five to ten films that are likely to be his favorites.

Any suggestions?

Also, to make this SFnal, anyone want to give me a title or two for a SF film from the 2020's or 2030's? :-) If I use yours, I'll Tuckerize you.

I think asking what will resonate with popular culture in 2090 is the wrong question. Almost by definition, popular culture in 2090 will be focused on stuff being made in 2090, which probably won't even be "movies" as we know them. A kid fascinated by ancient f&sf media in that world is in the same sort of position as a kid today who prefers Robert Louis Stevenson and Walter Scott to modern works -- there must be something he gets out of them that's *not* in the contemporary culture. In the case of a fan of "Treasure Island", that might be a romantic sense of adventure. I don't know enough about Michael's character to guess what that might be in his case.

But of course, the work I personally most want to done right for the screen, now that we miraculously have _The Lord of the Rings_, is _The Moon is a Harsh Mistress_.
