Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope (1977)
  Any geek list has to start with sci-fi, and what else than Star Wars. It's a classic. But we hate Jar Jar.
Spaceballs (1987)
  We also like to laugh at sci-fi.
Fahrenheit 9/11 (2004)
  We're opinionated. We hate stupid people and those that vote for them. We know Moore is biased, and can probably spot each instance of it, but we like this film anyway. (And if you like Bush, fine, go make your own geek list.)
School of Rock (2003)
  The unconventional way can work well, too. Plus, great tunes.
Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home (1986)
  We also like Star Trek, despite the sometimes predictable plots and stiff acting. Some of us live Star Trek IV; others hate it. But you have to see it at least once. (And we HATE Generations.)
Trekkies (1997)
  Geeks like this movie because (choose one):
  1. We like to laugh at ourselves
  2. This film is about dorks, NOT geeks. Get it straight! It's a big difference! And we like to laugh at dorks.
2001: A Space Odyssey (1968)
  Because we have a measurable attention span. And what is more of a geek icon than HAL?
Breaking the Codes: The Triumph of the Codebreakers (1999)
Not Rated
  We saved Europe.
Office Space (1999)
  Suits suck. We can all identify with this one.
Saturday Night Live - Best of Dana Carvey (1999)
Not Rated
  SNL funny. Carvey funny. Geeks like.
The Blues Brothers (1980)
  Cool tunes, car chases, on-location filming, and storming Daley Plaza. What could be better?
Babylon 5 - Movie 1: The Gathering (1993)
Not Rated
  We also like consistently excellent sci-fi.
Tron (1982)
  We still have an attention span. And this was a ground-breaking movie, after all.
Revenge of the Nerds/ Revenge of the Nerds II: Nerds in Paradise (1984)
  OK, so it's silly, and none of us were ever that nerdy. Ever. (At least that's our story.) But it's still funny.
Antitrust (2001)
  We don't like big monopolists.
Dragnet (2001)
  But Dragnet is funny.
The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes vol.1 (1984)
Not Rated
  We like a good mystery story and the original geek detective. But only when played by Jeremy Brett.
The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring (2001)
  Some of us are fluent in the Tolkien languages.
This Is Spinal Tap (1984)
  Anther funny one.
A Shot in the Dark (1964)
  OK, so some people totally hate it. But I know several that are Sellers fans.
The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy: Volume 1 (1981)
Not Rated
  And finally, some Douglas Adams. What more needs to be said?
