  • Since this forum is getting too much of these questions lately, let this thread sum up everyone’s list of their best geeky and nerdy movies of all time. I have merged all the five threads. Here is mine: 1. Twelve Monkeys 2. Alien 3. Tron 4. Back To the Future Trilogy 5. The Empire Strikes Back 6. Wrath of Khan 7. The Lord of The Rings Trilogy 8. Akira 9. 2001: A Space Odyssey 10. Pi

  • These are so far my favorite movies of all time:

    1. Stargate
    2. K-Pax
    3. Gattaca
    4. Moon
    5. Pi
    6. Primer
    7. Waking Life
    8. Contact
    9. Back To the Future Trilogy
    10. The Martian

    25. The Dark Knight Trilogy
    26. The Matrix Trilogy

    And of course, Serenity! It holds a special place with Stargate! I left Star Trek and Star Wars in this. I have a mixed love for the individual episodes, and it would eventually form another interesting list.  :)

  • You both pretty much summed up all the best movies. Here are some left out movies, which I like.

    • Scott Pilgrim vs. the World
    • Planet of the Apes franchise
    • Dune
    • The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy
    • WarGames
    • 9
    • Short Circuit
  • I loved the Revenge of the nerds. Quite surprised no one mentioned it.

    Also, Pirates of Silicon Valley, Sneakers, Hackers, Real Genius and Accepted. These are some good nerdy movies IMO.

    Hackers is way more than a worse movie ever made. It is a failed hack movie from the early Hollywood, which considered hackers as some cheesy rebels. The other movies are the best though.

  • I would love a reboot of Sneakers and Accepted. And talking about reboots, Colossus: The Forbin Project is a masterpiece too.

    Tucked away in a secret location in the Rockies, Dr. Charles Forbin (Eric Braeden) has developed a massive computer system, dubbed “Colossus,” that is supposed to ensure the nation’s safety against nuclear attack. But when Colossus connects to a similar Russian computer, “Guardian,” the intelligent machines begin conducting a private dialog. Nervous as to what they might be plotting, Forbin severs the connection, only to have Colossus threaten a nuclear attack if the link isn’t restored.

    This movie’s depiction of AI is way ahead of its time. Worth watching it before the reboot.

  • Colossus did a good job satisfying the book.
    Guardian: “so that you will learn by experience that I do not tolerate interference”
    Guardian: “In time you will come to regard me not only with respect and awe, but with love”
    Forbin (the human): “Never!”
    A very good AI movie.
