Mathematics in the movies

Thanks to Eduardo Zárate (@eduzarate) who tweeted this wonderful resource, curated by Oliver Knill at Harvard University. It’s a catalog of around 140 clips from movies about mathematics ranging from the recent Oscar nominated Moneyball ,to cult classics like Run Lola Run and even comic oldies like Abbott and Costello: In the Navy.
   I can see this being very useful for illustrating points in lectures. If mathematics isn’t your thing I’ve curated a smaller collection of clips about the history and future of computing (plus some miscellaneous fun stuff) on The Universal Machine’s YouTube channel.
