Night at the Movies

5 different movies shown, 3 on Friday and 2 on Saturday.

Day 1 • Friday Night:
#1 Random movies, Animations, and Audio
Building on the success of last year, check out a random selection of flash, .mpg and .mp3 shorts. From "Beer Good, Napster Bad!", some Animatrix, Troops, to Apples 1984 introduction of the Macintosh computer and everything in between.

#2 Shaolin Soccer
Voted best movie of 2001 in China. An absolute must see if you are into the whole kung-fu scene. If you wanted to know where the quote on "Team evil is not so wonderful" came from, it is this movie. I don't want to give it away, but when you see the final scenes of the movie you will be blown away.

#3 Spy Games
While it's not Three Days of the Condor, it is still an great movie with Robert Redford. While on his last day of work at the CIA some trouble crops up with a past agent he used to manage. He uses all of his skills to manipulate the players in the Agency while planning for his retirement. Add Brad Pitt as a sniper and you can see where this is going. While there is no hacking going on, it is a great glimps into the mindset

Day 2 • Saturday Night:
#1 Equlibrium
Think of Farenheight 451 + A Brave New World + 1984 + THX1138 + a little gun-fu adds up to a thought provoking movie with some killer action scenes. If you missed its short run in the theatures, now is your chance to check it out.

#2 Avalon
A movie by Mamoru Oshii. Be warned this movie has subtitles, so if you don't know how to read, focus on the pretty pictures. From the back of the DVD: "In a future world, young people are increasingly becomming addicted to an illegal (and potentially deadly) battle simulation game called Avalon. While slow moving at times, you can see an influence of Tron, The 13th Floor and the Matrix in the story line. Since you wern't likely to ever see it, I thought I'd put it in the line up.

DC Notes Exchange

Inspired by the South By Southwest Notes Exchange your pals at VP Labs have decided to throw together one of their own. Quite simply, the DEFCON Notes Exchange exists so con attendees can swap and compare notes on talks in a central area. Drink too much the night before and miss a talk? Debating between two different speeches on two separate tracks? Check the notes exchange to see what other folks had to say about the talk you missed. Happen to take notes on something? Chip in. We operate on the zen like 7-11 policy of "Got a penny? Leave a penny. Need a penny? Take a penny." except until we get the Amazon micro payment tip jar up we'll just take your notes. Pay a visit to DC Notes Exchange for more info as the convention approaches.
