This is my “geek” movie selections although not really rated by who’s the best or not, so there’s no ranking I just want to watch them and here it is:
Pirates of Silicon Valley
It tells the tale of the start of Microsoft and Apple and has a brilliant cast who do a great job of portraying their characters. Noah Wyle as Steve Jobs.
Number 5 is alive! or Johnny 5 as one of 5 in a group of experimental robots in a lab then which was accidentally electrocuted, which messes up his programming becomes intelligent, and escapes.
Although it’s not a Hardcore geek film and doesn’t even give a decent representation of “hackers” but nonetheless it comes close to giving a glimpse of the hacker cyber punk genre, and Angelina Jolie as Kate Libby aka Acid Burn is hot.
Star Trek: The Wrath of Khan
This Star Trek movie is my favorite which stars the original Captain Kirk! The story revolves around a midlife crisis that is interrupted by the return of an old enemy looking for revenge and a potentially destructive device.
A young man finds a back door into a military central computer in which reality is confused with game-playing, possibly starting World War III. This film is a hilarious look back at early home computers. It was so popular it was nominated for 3 oscars!
Planet of the Apes
The Original Planet of the Apes not the one Mark Wahlberg starred in (it totally sucked). “Glory be the Bomb and to the Holy Fallout!”
Alien and Aliens
Aliens, androids, alien planets, Sigourney Weaver as Ripley doing her usual Alien butt kicking and her Alien queen Trash talking.
A secret military project endangers Neo-Tokyo when it turns a biker gang member into a rampaging psionic psychopath that only two kids and a group of psionics can stop.
By Darren Aronofsky “A paranoid mathematician searches for a key number that will unlock the universal patterns found in nature”
A cult success. “Peter Gibbons, thanks to a hypnotic suggestion, decides not to go to work at the same time his company is laying people off. When layoffs affect his two best friends, they conspire to plant a virus that will embezzle money from the company into their account.” This is a very good film plus lots of lines to quote!
The Original Star Wars Trilogy
The 3 most recent Star Wars Films sucks everyone knows it. But these films are a Masterpiece. Need I say more?
I only love the the first movie of the trilogy is the best and is hailed as one of the best geek movie ever.
Planet Spaceball’s President Skroob sends Lord Dark Helmet to steal Planet Druidia’s abundant supply of air to replenish their own, and only Lone Starr can stop them. Simply hilarious.
Set in the futuristic Rain City vision of Los Angeles. With a robot assassin Roy Batty (Rutger Hauer) and police investigator Deckard (Harrison Ford). Well, If Indiana Jones is there it surely kick ass!
2001: A Space Odyssey
Stanley Kubrick’s memorable film comes complete with astronaut meals, phone cards, and a frightening depth of artificial intelligence,
Conan the Barbarian
“Crush your enemies, see them driven before you, and hear the lamentation of the women!” That’s the philosophy of Arnold Schwarzenegger’s Teutonic warrior. Who has never dreamed of becoming Conan the Barbarian, all of my friends wanted to be a barbarian when they grow up, this movie is the credit for it.
Ghost in the Shell
This is a very weird interpretation of future Asia, humans enhance themselves with cyborg parts and where data can take on a life of its own, and the line that separates man from machines are starting blur away.
Back to the Future trilogy
I love this movie series, with Marty McFly (Michael J. Fox) and Doc Brown (Christopher Lloyd) as they struggle to keep the space-time continuum intact.
The Terminator/Terminator 2: Judgment Day
Robots, the apocalyptic future and Arnold a good mix ain’t it
Mad Max trilogy
Rogue cop Max, a member of the police force guarding the roads from raging bikers as the world falls apart. Then Max’s wife dies, Max goes mad and becomes an avenging angel in Mad Max, only to recover his humanity by saving a post-apocalyptic western community in The Road Warrior.
