If you’re a geek, you’ll want your kids to grow up and be a geek too.   To that end, Wired has a list of ten geeky movies you should make your kids watch and of course it goes without saying that Star Wars IV: A New Hope is in first place.

I am also glad that Back To The Future made the cut.  But Harry Potter? Can Harry Potter seriously be considered a geek movie?   That little kid with a zigzag scar and a wand?   Can he honestly be put in the same league as Luke Skywalker?

What geek movies would you show / have you shown your kids?

  1. What geek movies would you show / have you shown your kids?

    They've watched Tron, The Computer Wore Tennis Shoes, and some others. I want them to see, AntiTrust [2000- Ryan Phillippe, Tim Robbins…]. To young yet for the violence.

  3. I am glad to see war games was there. If it was not, I would have wondered about the credibility of the list. I do however feel supprised that Hackers and Tron are not included.
