Geek Out: What's Your Favorite Vintage Geek Movie?

A few weeks ago I heard the line "wouldn't you prefer a nice game of chess?" while clicking through the channels, and I had to stop and watch WarGames in its entirety. The flick ranked 26 on my Must-See Geeky Movies list and with good reason — it's amazing. If you haven't had the pleasure of watching it 100 times, it features a young Matthew Broderick tapping into a military computer that confuses war games with reality. The computers are epically clunky, and each line is dweebier than the next. And did I mention baby Broderick is pretty dreamy?

Talk geeky to me: what's your favorite vintage geek movie you simply can't resist watching when it's on?
