Weird Science (1985)
The plot of this tape is as simple as it is complex: two geeky friends come together to create the perfect woman through their super computer skills. Weird Science combines two great traditions of popular entertainment: male adolescent fantasies and Frankenstein’s monster, in this case embodied by a radiant and sexy woman.
Actress Kelly LeBrock is wonderful as the woman in the fantasy, because she plays the character not for sex, but for warmth and an almost maternal affection for these two boys. A tape today considered cult, which combines science fiction with comedy in a very entertaining way. Only suitable for geeks at heart who want to see one of the best movies about nerds!
Four friends work in a garage building gadgets. Almost by accident, they discover a mechanism that allows them to get almost anything they want. The find will test the relationships between its inventors.
The plot seems simple, however, it is one of the most complex and fascinating tapes you will ever see. For many critics and fans, this is the definitive time travel movie. If you want to see something totally original and far from your typical time travel movie, give this wonder of the past decade a try.
The Goonies (1985)
A group of friends, nicknamed the Goonies, set out on an adventure to find the lost treasure of a legendary pirate. Richard Donner’s film remains relevant and is frequently referenced in pop culture. This exciting and endearing film is one of the best films about nerds that have been shot in the history of the seventh art. Long live the Goonies!
The Theory of Everything (2014)
This biographical drama tells the story of Stephen Hawking, one of the greatest scientists of all time. The film delves into the complexities of love, disease, and the unwavering human spirit to overcome obstacles.
A different way of approaching the figure of Hawking, who suffered from Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis for much of his life. This situation was not an obstacle for his mind to shine and leave us one of the deepest thoughts about space and humans in history.
Wayne’s World (1992)
Unforgettable cult comedy that takes us into the lives of two friends who present their television program from a basement. Their quirky sense of humor and innocence make them endearing heroes. Wayne’s World is a testament to the power of authenticity and the ability to be yourself no matter what the consequences (even if it hurts the world).

War Games (1982)
This American science fiction techno-thriller follows the journey of a young man who accidentally finds a door to a military mainframe. And it turns out that this device is in full control of the US nuclear arsenal!
That’s where the fun begins: the machine challenges you to what looks like a game of the United States against Russia, possibly starting World War 3. Although hacking and hacking are hardly surprising today, it was not a very debatable topic in the 1980s.
Ready Player One (2018)
Set in a dystopian future, this sci-fi movie plunges us into the realm of virtual reality. Steven Spielberg directs this production in which we follow the adventures of Wade Watts and his ambitious search to reveal the secrets of a hidden game within the alternative digital universe. Ready Player One pays homage to the wonderful world of the geeky, the nerdy, the geeky, and the pop culture.
Napoleon Dynamite (2004)
An apathetic teenager decides to help his new friend win class president at his small western high school while dealing with his strange home life. Napoleon’s look is a highlight in this fun film: baggy pants, soldier boots, plastic-rimmed glasses, and he spends his time drawing mythical monsters. The queen of nerd movies? It is very likely that this is the case.
