People in US claim President Barack Obama is one of the "coolest presidents" the United States has ever had. Why the said that? Because the President Obama offered up a list of films and TV shows that the leader of America considers his "must watch".
The President´s preferences were published at Wired Magazzine. The President’s list is as follows:
- 2001: A Space Odyssey
- Blade Runner
- Close Encounters of the Third Kind
- Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope
- Star Trek (1966-69)
- The Martian
- The Matrix
- Cosmos: A Personal Voyage
The President also offered up some brief thoughts on each entry. For him Blade Runner is essential because “it asks what it means to be human,” while 2001 “captures the grandeur and scale of the unknown.”
If you had to do your own list of the most essential film and TV of all time would you pick some of the President’s choices?
