What Are The Best Movies About Geeks and Nerds?

The Matrix Trilogy (1999-2003) 1 of 11

There is no better set of films to kick off this list than a trilogy that was so geeky, not even the geeks understood all of it. From the brilliant minds of the Wachowski Brothers, this trilogy starring Keanu Reeves had everything that a geek could dream of squeezed into three, two-hour films. With tons of action, beautiful women, and deadly machines that could potentially take over the universe, there was a lot for any nerd to love. 

Oh yes, and did I mention that all of this stuff happened inside a massive virtual world? Crafted around the story of a software developer commonly known as Neo, the major plot involves this man tapping into a massive computer network in an effort to save the world, while getting a better grip on reality. Neo beat up so many bad guys that he made every geek feel like a hero.
