Top 10: Movies for Computer Geeks



 

10. Pirates of Silicon Valley (1999)

This is a semi-humorous biographical film about the men who made the world of technology what it is today, their struggles during college, the founding of their companies, and the ingenious actions they took to build up the global corporate empires of Apple Computer Corporation and Microsoft Inc.

Quote:

  • Steve Jobs: I don’t want you to think of this as just a film – some process of converting electrons and magnetic impulses into shapes and figures and sounds. No. Listen to me. We’re here to make a dent in the universe. Otherwise, why even be here? We’re creating a completely new consciousness, like an artist or poet. That’s how you have to think of this. We’re rewriting the history of human thought with what we’re doing.
  • Ridley Scott: Right. Well, Steven, at the moment I’m a touch more worried about getting light on the actress. Do you know what I mean?

IMDB Score: 7.2
