The topic of movies that people really need to have watched has come up a couple times in the last week or two, so i'm trying to think of all the movies that if you heard a geeky friend hadn't seen you'd say "omg you haven't seen that!!1!1!?!?!" :)

Geek must watch list:

Real Genius
Monty Python and the Holy Grail
Top Secret
Airplane (? i'm kinda iffy on this one)
Fifth Element
Galaxy Quest (well _i_ think so, so at the very least it belongs in the list below)
LA Story
Clerks/Mallrats (?)
War Games
Blade Runner

Are there any glaring omissions? I'm sure there must be quite a few because i was looking at my shelves after the initial listing and smacking myself for the things i forgot just off of that =P

And now for (at least some of) the movies that aren't as universally well known and loved as the above, but which i really like :)

_My_ must watch list:

Into the Woods
Without a Clue
Undercover Blues
Iron Giant
Knight's Tale
Demolition Man
Nightmare Before Christmas
Current Mood: geekygeeky

Doh! Yeah, i knew i was forgetting at least a few important ones :)

I don't think if you've not seen these movies that it's a "you must turn in your geek card now" thing, it's a "we need to sit you down and make you watch these!" thing :)
