Twitter hashtags can be downright awful, but when we saw that #NerdMovies was trending, we knew we had a winner.
What cinematic masterpieces do you think would benefit from the addition of something geeky? Dramas, comedies, indie darlings? We'd like to think the answer is "all of the above," and with that in mind, we've done our best to separate the wheat from the chaff in the #NerdMovies thread. There were lots of examples of people making fun of geeks, but that wasn't what we were after. We were looking for movie titles that reveled in nerd glory.
With that in mind, we've found 21 titles that we liked best.
