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 â€œhackersâ€ 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). â€œGlory be the Bomb and to the Holy Fallout!â€
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 â€œA paranoid mathematician searches for a key number that will unlock the universal patterns found in natureâ€
A cult success. â€œPeter 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.â€ 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 Spaceballâ€™s President Skroob sends Lord Dark Helmet to steal Planet Druidiaâ€™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
â€œCrush your enemies, see them driven before you, and hear the lamentation of the women!â€ Thatâ€™s the philosophy of Arnold Schwarzeneggerâ€™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 Maxâ€™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.
