8 Classic Movies That Nurtured Us Into Geeks

Was there a certain movie that you watched as a kid that turned you into a real fan? One that opened up a whole new world to you, be it sci-fi, fantasy, tech, or something else? The ‘70s, ‘80s, and ‘90s were full of classic films that tied together a generation of geeks that now run the internet. Geeks Are Sexy lists eight of those movies for your nostalgic pleasure. If you are of a different age, you may have a different list. Personally, I would include Planet of the Apes (1968), 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968), Fantastic Voyage (1966), The Time Machine (1960), and The Andromeda Strain (1971). Because I’m an old geek.

Can't beat War Games. Sneakers & Hackers deserve honorable mention... A young Angelina Jolie would get any young man rather interested in computers.
