TOP movies for GEEKS-Entrepreneurs


Movies keep us engaged all the time, some movies inspire/ motivate and some of them just make us Happy! Being a Technology Enthusiast and a budding Entrepreneur, have seen a lot movies which depict technology, entrepreneurship and geekology :P! .... here comes the list...
The first one i.e POSV is about Bill Gates and Steve Jobs, How Microsoft and Apple Revolutionized this world?! ... Its definitely worth watching, for a start-up enthusiast.

August is about a startup called Lionshark! and how the CEO tackles all the challenges he comes across... i.e stocks, Venture Capitalists..... EGO! :P again, its a great movie for entrepreneurs!

The Secret of my Success is about a Village boy who dreams of becoming the next CEO of a BIG corporation in Newyork!...

Wargames,Hackers,Diehard, Eagle eye, Tron are real GEEK movies, If you are totally into Technology and just adore technology go ahead and watch it.... :-)

TRON is one really good 1982 movie..
Synopsis:
A hacker is literally abducted into the world of a computer and forced to participate in gladiatorial games where his only chance of escape is with the help of a heroic security program (source:IMDB,grace)


Holy Saint! How could I forget "Paycheck"!! I have seen this movie thrice... never got bored! Its about a freelancer who ends up getting 'ZERO' money with the Time Machine he just built! and he somehow manages to escape with a huge JackPot in the end... watch it people you will love this one, "Ben Afleck" at his best! Thanks a lot "Rajeev" for reminding me about this movie.

More movie reviews coming up....will update this post asap... :-)

If you have seen movies of similar kind do share it here...and add a comment ! :)

I feel that Into The Wild was a superb man... After the movie i learnt that "Happiness is only true, when it is shared" ... I totally agree with that... btw, the heroin was tall, so am in search of her.. :D
her name is Kristen Stewart, born on 9 April 1990... i cant believe tat !!

Other movie was Requiem for a dream, fantastic movie... Superb acting by Jennifer Connelly and others... In fact she has acted also in Blood Diamond and Hulk..
