The Social Network is Hollywood’s rendition of the story of Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg. We're pretty sure that Zuckerberg probably didn't snort cocaine off some college girl's ass.

Johnny Mnemonic

Another cult classic, this comedy took place in the 80's and showed the "Nerds" as your typical underdogs and how they got back at the people who bullied them.

Iron Man 2

Robert Downey Jr. plays Tony Stark, a bazillionaire genius who after being captured by some terrorists creates a kickass suite of armour and destroys all the douchebags that get in his way. The cool techy aspect to this story is that his character in the movie was based on some real-life people in the tech industry like Larry Ellison (CEO of Oracle) and Elon Musk (founder of Tesla Space-X and PayPal).


A movie about computer hackers starring Angelina Jolie, back when she didn't have 19 kids. The storyline involved a young hacker getting banned from computers for childhood digital misdeeds (he crashed the New York Stock Exchange) who then uses his skills for good when he turns 18. Jolie plays the sexy love interest and fellow hacker, and she's looking hot with short hair.


Now a two-part series, Tron and Tron-Legacy follows a computer programmer portrayed by Jeff Bridges, and the computer generated world that he originally got sucked into, and later created and got trapped within. The first movie, although cutting edge at the time looks a bit cheesy watching it in the present, but still is entertaining. The more recent film is full of eye-candy and extremely well done, with a kickass soundtrack too.


Starring Kevin Spacey, this movie is based on real life people, and tell the story of how a bunch of college kids from MIT and their professor (played by Spacey) used their brains and the power of statistics and counting cards to cheat at blackjack in Vegas casinos.
