Well, the criteria I've been using are portraying technology in a positive
light, and - more important, sufficiently so to get a work at least an
honorable mention by itself - the use of rational thought for solving

In The Matrix, the machines are evil and the way to solve problems is with a
form of watered-down mysticism. I'm not saying it's a bad movie - it's good
for what it is, a martial arts flick with cool special effects - but I
wouldn't recommend it for the philosophy.

Here's another one I just remembered: Ghostbusters.
