...these films are;
Am I not geek enough?
A) In your DVD collection
B) ...considered, by you, to be the best films EVER
The movies are not in any particular order... except for number one... number one is number one I'm afraid!
You get every reference and find yourself having to explain them to your guests.
20) Fight Club 
You still talk about the ‘twist’ in the movie and regularly compare with acquaintances at what point you ‘clicked’ – or maybe, you’re one of those geeks who say ‘Oh... but the book was far superior’?
Oh yes... you love world cinema and regularly say (with a flourish of course) ‘Akira Kurosawa’s film, Seven Samurai, is really not only his greatest film, but... also his most widely known movie on our side of the planet... har-har!’
18) The Cabin in the Woods 
You make everyone you know watch this at least once and watch for their expressions... you then check at the end of the film to see if they ‘got it’.
17) Highlander 
Yes, it’s awful... you agree, but you love it. You love it because it’s about Scotsmen, swords, revenge and the modern world (oh and Sean Connery). You can’t help it... I get it.
16) Zombieland 
I’m afraid if this is on your shelf, there’s no hope for you now.
You sit with bated breath during the five minute overture at the opening, not allowing anybody to talk or even blow their noses (or like me you stare at the ‘iPad-like’ devices they have in the space ship and pause it to tell everybody about it).
14) Metropolis 
Conversations with you about this film are painful – as you’re convinced you’re the one who discovered it.
13) Shaun of the Dead 
You guffaw at all the right places like a Brit; whilst saying ‘there really is nothing quite like British humour’. You also point out all the foreshadowing in the film to the annoyance of other people.
Does the following sound familiar... ‘Ha, you liked The Hunger Games? You do know that she totally ripped it off from Battle Royale... a Japanese film from like the 2000s, which was also a manga!’
‘The themes in Gattacca are totally relevant to our very near future’ says you, whilst shaking your fist, convinced that future super-stars will be having their children genetically engineered in the womb etc etc
10) Batman [1989 onward]
All of them.
Argh... stop telling me that it used to be a TV Show (Firefly) and all the actors are pretty much up to start the show again and blah blah...
Post-Apoc is a genre that gets your juices flowing. This is required watching.
9) Idiocracy 
When you sit to watch it, you have to be alone... otherwise, your constant spouting of how people have already reached the level of stupidity in this movie distracts those watching with you.
Oh my. To initiate other people to your geekdom you force them to watch this... and the rest for good measure!
7) The Fifth Element 
Another Bruce Willis – you use the fact that he is in this movie, and 12 Monkeys to prove that Willis is just so flexible and one of the best actors of our age.
6) Back to the Future 
This is so geek it’s close to becoming main-stream... but your inner-geek can’t resist, even if you resent it a little.
The whole damn franchise
4) Dune 
This is another one of those films where you push up your glasses and tut at all the inconsistencies the film has with the novel.
3) Star Wars [1977 onwards]
‘The old ones please, none of those fandangled-fancy ones’, says you, gritting your teeth.
2) Stargate 
You not only love this, but own it... and the whole series too!
...and the number one place goes to...
1) Star Trek [1979 onward]
There is nothing left to be said
