Two more testing movies

In an interesting discussion today (can't really remember how we got there) I remembered one of the best illustrations of context-driven analysis I've seen in a movie. It was in The Messenger where Dustin Hoffman challenges Joan of Arc in how she found a sword in a field. Every time I watch it, I think of how easy it is to fall into the same trap Joan falls into when we see a problem.

My wife and I also watched a movie more directly related to testing tonight, Man of the Year. Even though the software and software testing shown in the movie certainly leave you wanting more (what do you expect, it's Hollywood) the movie does a great job of showing an ethical problem for a tester. I really enjoyed that aspect of the movie.
