Desk Set

Actually, this is a surprisingly good movie, if you're into the comedies of that era. If not, it's a comedy from that era.

That's quite a list, Modi... I'd put Real Genius at the top because, well, just because.

I supposed it entirely depends on what you take "Programmer movie" to mean. If you're going to have Matrix, you must have Johnny Mnemonic, though. There is no Matrix 2 or 3...

@baav - that list wasn't in any particular order.. just as they came to me.

.. yes there was a Matrix 2 and 3. I thoroughly enjoyed them.


Ah.. and:
The Net
Gamer
Paycheck
Nirvana
Last Starfighter
The Wizard
