A few geeky movies.
Here’s a short list of a few of my favorite geeky movies. It’s by no means a definitive or complete one.
- Star Wars – 1977 The original, Episode IV if you must. The one that started it all.
- Blade Runner – 1992 A gritty tale of rogue androids and a man tasked with hunting them down.
- Night of the Living Dead – 1968 George Romero’s zombie classic.
- Akira – 1988 Biker gangs and secret military projects in Neo-Tokyo. One of the greatest animated movies of all time.
- Tron – 1982 From Disney studios. What’s cooler than actually being sucked in to a computer game?
- Brazil – 1985 Terry Gilliam’s twisted future tale.
- Time Bandits – While we’re talking Terry. A young boy accidently joins a band of dwarves as they jump from time-period to time-period looking for treasure to steal.
- Monty Python and the Holy Grail – 1975 Let’s stay on the Brit theme. The tale of King Arthur and his knights, with a bit of a twist.
- The Matrix – The first one, just the first one, stop right there and go no further. I’m warning you, you’ll regret it if you watch the other ones.
I could go on and on, and perhaps I will in a future post.
