Who would have guessed a movie about a computer nerd could be such a big deal? Now
that the tale of the world's youngest billionaire is receiving raves from critics
and audiences alike, we thought we'd put together a fun little feature to
celebrate David Fincher's The
Social Network. Here, from #15 to #1, are the results of our Fandango
user survey, asking all of you, who are the all-time movie computer geeks?
By Chuck Walton
where the eff is ryan phillipe for Anti trust!?
How about Justin Long's first film role as the ultimate fanboy geek, Brandon, in Galaxy Quest?
and what about HACKERS!
oops - sorry - I just saw the icon above....
Also in Jurassic Park was the guy who started all the mayhem when he sabotaged the security system--not cool or handsome, but definitely some degree of a "whiz," right?
You're talking about Wayne Knight.
The cool handsome one was Samuel L. Jackson.
What about that girl Lex from Jurassic Park?
What about Bruce in TRON way cooler than Jeff.
How about Gabriel Jarret's Mitch Taylor from "Real Genius"? I mean, sure he was the Luke Skywalker to Chris Knight's (Val Kilmer) Han Solo/Yoda, but without him Chris would have no one to play off of. Also, after Chris Knight finds out that his extra-cirricular work was being used to build a weapon, it was Mitch who pulled him out of his funk and convinced him to stop it and get sweet revenge on his double-crossing teacher at the same time.
What about Data from the Goonies? I know we don't see him use a computer, but with a name like that and all of his gadgets, what else could he be? Also, how did Justin Long and Sandra Bullock rank higher on the list than Anthony Michael Hall, Anthony Edwards, and all the other geeks from the 80s?
Take a look at some new and familiar faces in Peter Jackson's Lord of the Rings prequel.
