Extropian movie dealing with desiring eternal youth:

Cocoon - "Old" folks at a retirement home regain their youth from the
life-giving qualities found in a swimming in a pool filled with alien beings
in large clam-like cocoons.

What I love about this film is that the folks really want to be youthful and
extreme longevity. Very upbeat, full of delightful parallels to extropic
thinking. (****)

Extropian movie dealing with self-transformation:

Gound Hog Day - Man repeats same day until he gets it right.

This is one of my favorites because the lead character eventually becomes
his optimal self. It's not done an easy way - by pulling the wool over
others' eyes and pretending - but through his learning new skills and
actually changing his behavior and personality. (****)
