Towards the end of 2016, I got a WhatsApp broadcast message containing a list of movies to look out for in 2017. It was a very long list and I couldn’t help but wonder how long it took the composer to compile it. Inspired by this, I decided to come up with my own list; not as long, just a few I believe techies would enjoy.
