So you want to really call yourself a geek? Then you've got some work to do. So get these movies and watch them, you'll be one step closer to true geekhood.


Please add your own favorite geeky movies. Remember that these are not necessarily the "best" movies for anyone to see, but movies that have a geek-factor to them and therefore require geek viewing. Also add a youtube video of the movie trailer if you can.

The second is a little too new to be called a classic but I think time will get it there. "Serenity"

Modern computers have made animation an accessible creative medium, but at a time when an animated movie meant hundreds upon hundreds of individually drawn cells, this amazing work was completed. It is breathtakingly beautiful and layered.

Definitely one for the geeks to enjoy!

Probably more appropriate to put Titan or Warhammer in here, but I chose something with a similar name instead.

This movie came out about the same time as the Matrix so did not get much play but is a much better movie. Stars Christian Bale before his was "The Batman".
