With hundreds of films released every year, the number of movies for geeks is rising all the time. It helps that “geek” is an increasingly vague term assigned to anybody and everybody.
This means cult movies, comic book movies, extreme horror movies, and, of course, sci-fi movies, all count as being for geeks. As well as other genres and styles we don’t have the room to list here.
The question is, which is your personal favorite geek movie of all time?
Pick Your Geek Flick
We want to know, What Is Your Favorite Geek Movie? It’s a simple enough question, and we’re not going to sully it or stifle the conversation by adding any superfluous rules. If you love a movie and think it counts as appealing to geeks in any way, then we want to hear all about it.
You may be unsure whether the movie you want to wax lyrical about in the comments section below this article is geeky enough. In which case, be sure to check out our lists of movies every geek should watch and movies featuring technology as the main subject. Doing so will give you some idea of what we’re looking for. As will the video below looking forward to geek movies being released in 2015.
Please don’t limit yourself and/or your choices, as the aim here is to compile as long a list as possible. This means you’re also welcome to suggest more than one geek movie… the old adage of “the more the merrier” truly does apply on this occasion.
It doesn’t matter whether you name a blockbuster everybody in the world has surely seen by now (such as Star Wars or Star Trek) or an independent film you suspect no one else reading this has even heard of. The latter being so unknown to the world I can’t even name any examples!
Can you help us find 25 geek movies? 50 geek movies? Even 100 geek movies? We have faith in you all. The (hopefully) long list will be published this time next week as the We Ask You Results, and all those who take part will have the pleasure of knowing they contributed towards it.
All comments will be read and most will be replied to, before a follow-up post is published containing the We Ask You Results. One reader will win Comment Of The Week, receiving our extreme and everlasting gratitude for their efforts.
We Ask You is a column dedicated to learning the opinions of MakeUseOf readers. This column is nothing without you, as MakeUseOf is nothing without you.
