The Call Yourself A Geek Club

In discussing WarGames two days ago, my thoughts went to a list of films I started curating at work. I named it The Call Yourself A Geek Film Club.

The intention was to list films I and others felt were worthy additions in the celebration of Geek. Simon Pegg, of whom I’m a big fan of, has oft been heard defending and celebrating the concept of a nerd or geek. Here he is on BBC Four defining it

So here is the list in its current form. What do you agree with and what do you think is missing? What’s your percentage geek?
