I'd say... National Treasure..
Swordfish was a fairly good hacker movie.
Gotta be Napoleon Dynamite.
Finally, somebody actually mentioned an actual geek movie.
What is the difference between a geek and a nerd?
Isn't geek nerd spelled backwards....?
I don't know...my wife tells me a nerd is intelligent, and a geek is a socially awkward *****. apparently I am a nerd/freak.
Oh, i beg to differ on that point
The more i think back about Weird Science the more i remember about it and that i liked it. In fact, I'm gonna have to go put it in my Netflix queue so I can watch it again.
The geeks in Weird Science run up to their bedroom to use their home computer gear to create their own perfect girlfriend. Now, how geeky (and resourceful ) is that? haha
from Movie Gadget Friday: Weird Science and 'Weird Science' vs. 'Real Genius': 25th Anniversary Geek-Off
They use a Memotech MTX512 with FDX add-on home computer
They have an AI Feed Scanner to scan in photos of the characteristics they want to create
Use Crypto-Smasher V3.10 program to hack into the Pentagon's mainframe for more data and power
First off, I was on board with, "Real Genius" back on page one, go check.
Second; then you should put "Repli-Kate" **, in you queue also. Ali Landry is sort of like Lisa, but with implants. This movie also had Eugene Levy, of "American Pie" ("fame"?).
I knew that Courtney Cox's name linked to "science" somehow. She was in "Misfits of Science", the TV series.
** Repli-Kate is one of the very few actually almost really funny movies from National Lampoon. Well, then there's "Animal House".
As this thread moves along, it would seem that every movie with a computer theme, special FX, or is sci-fi, has become categorized as a "geek" movie.
As an example "Star Trek" can be enjoyed be geek and normal mortal alike. It's when you spend too much time in your room waxing your phaser to "Voyager" episodes with a heavy, "Seven of Nine" presence.in them, that you may have to hope they develop implant goggles like Giordi's, so that you remain sighted during your retirement. This would be known as the. "guh-ick" factor, which when combined with the "eek" your mother shrieks when she catches you, is probably the root origin of the term "geek" in the first place....:rolleyes: (See you never knew it was an acronym, did you)?
Then there's "Plan B", Jolene Blalock.
Well there is the definition.
1) OK. Done! Repli-Kate is now in the queue as well :approve:
2) Forgive my tangential comment in the thread but responding to red
YES! Bill Shatner in Boston Legal was at his best :grinthumb :grinthumb :grinthumb :grinthumb
I think they left Jolene's a** crack shower scene in the Star Trek Enterprise" boxed set. If that not enough to "get your "geek on", so to speak, there's always the Linda Park lingerie episode. (I think that this was titled, "Mirror Mirror" the same as it was in STOS).
Of course it was, I concur with both of you.
BUT, at this point he had 40 years + of practice/ experience in acting, and James Spader to hold him up.
I will agree with that. Spader is tremendous.
I loved Office Space, that beating they give that Copier. lol
Got beat to the obvious 80's classics - War Games, Real Genius, Tron, etc., Real Genius being my fav.
Got to be "War Games". Way ahead of its tme.
"Clue". It was a movie based on a board game. And a damn fine movie a that
E.T. & Weird Science rock my socks off.
Took your advice, put "Repli-Kate" in my Netflix queue. It finally bubbled to the top and I watched it last night. Cute movie.
Tho they did copy a famous scene where a mirror breaks then different people mime and pretend to be their own mirror image.
Most notably Groucho and Harpo Marx in Duck Soup - tho i think also Chaplain before the Marx Bros. However, I must admit that while the Marx Bros. version was funnier, watching Ali Landry is more scenic
Clip of the mirror scene in the Marx Bros flick "Duck Soup" where Harpo is disguised to impersonate Groucho's character
p.s. Does anyone born after say 1980, still watch the old Marx Bros. flicks?
Regardless of who says what, there will never be a substitute for War Games.
Hackers should have been billed as a comedy. I have it on DVD. It makes an nice beer mat
