11 summer films for geeks and techies

Why geeks will want to head to the cinema this summer

It's summer movie time again, time for the movie studios to trot out blockbusters with explosions and all sorts of fun. We look at 11 films that tech fans and geeks will definitely want to see.

Scott Pilgrim vs the World (TBC)

At first, this movie seems like a typical 'teen' or romantic comedy. Scott Pilgrim (Michael Cera) meets a rollerblading delivery girl named Ramona Flowers.

Only problem? In order to win her heart, he has to defeat her 'seven evil exes' in all sorts of comic-book action and fighting.

Why geeks want to see it

What geek in us didn't want to secretly win the cool girl by 'defeating' all of her ex-boyfriends? This film takes it up a level with comic-book style words like 'THUD' and 'KAPOW' much like the old Batman TV show.
