Film Discussion, post two

Okay, here we go.

I was able to choose the following films as ones this kid likes:

The Wizard of Oz
War of the Worlds
The Time Machine
Star Wars
The Matrix
Dark City
Forbidden Planet
The Day the Earth Stood Still
The Last Starfighter

As for made up titles, I've got
Ender's Game (zhaneel69 gets a Tuckerization e-coupon; see below)
Neuromancer (the remake)
Lunar Revolt (the title under which Hollywood releases Moon is a Harsh Mistress, so zmook gets a Tuckerization e-coupon)

Here's the thing, though. I'd really like to cut this down to a list of twelve. Six established films, six made-up ones. And while that means I need at least four more made-up titles (and I have to cut a few established ones), I only have two Tuckerizations to offer in this particular story. Both are minor characters who are part of a commission to decide on whether to adopt VR for public education. But both get mentioned a few times.

So here's the deal. If I use your made-up movie title, and I can't put you in this story, you will get a e-coupon to be Tuckerized in a future story. Or, if you're already being Tuckerized (hi zhaneel69!) you can pass the coupon along to someone else.

Titles people offered in the previous post have already been decided against. Also, let's get away from what books or stories you want to see turned into movies. I want original titles, ones that aren't based on known SF stories and ones that the IMDB says don't exist.

And as a further fun exercise, what's the movie you're titling about?

Also, to help you along, know that the kid who likes these films is an isolated geeky kid who gets picked on in school. He's a computer genius who knows how to hack into the VR system, so he loves The Matrix. Given that information, what old films from 2010-2050, say, does he love?
