8 tech movies to watch and rewatch this holiday season (while it lasts)

How're your holidays going devs? With just two days to go for 2020, let's spend some time off the regular keyboard smashing and watch a few good movies.

With our love for all things tech at heart, we're sharing EIGHT awesome movies we think every developer should (re)watch during holidays to get inspiration for their new year resolutions 😛

Disclaimer: We're not going to rank any movies above the other in this list.

The Internship (2013)

Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson are crashing Google this time!

The Internship is a story of two middle-aged salesmen who get coveted internships at Google, where they compete with young tech nerds for landing a full-time job.

Google let this movie be shot at Googleplex HQ for five days while the rest of the film was shot at Georgia Institute of Technology, where they made a replica of Google HQ.

The Social Network (2010)

One of the best movies on internet pop culture ever made, this David Fincher classic is an early biography of Facebook.

With Jesse Eisenberg playing Mark Zuckerberg,  the movie portrays how what he built in his Harvard dorm room soon became a global social network and a revolution in communication.

Though the story includes a lot of details that were added for kicks, most of the events portrayed were true.

The Imitation Game (2014)

Love algorithms? Love Cumberbatch? Love both?

This one has them both! The film tells the story of mathematical genius Alan Turing (Benedict) and his fellow mathematicians who built the world's first computer that cracked the German Enigma code.

Based on the real-life story of the computer scientist and cryptoanalyst, the movie brilliantly takes you on a tour of the dark days of war and how Britain eventually won the War for the Allies.

Jobs (2013)

There have been multiple movies made on Steve Jobs, co-founder, and the iconic face of Apple Inc., but Jobs stands way above the others due to its brilliant screenplay and, of course, for Ashton Kutcher's uncanny resemblance with the real Steve Jobs.

An inspiration for both youngsters and adults alike, this movie is a fascinating biography of how a college dropout worked his way through to become a pioneer in the tech industry, being well-known for his creativity and a passion for changing the world!

The Matrix (1999)

Keanu Reeves plays a stunt-loving computer genius. Period.

One of the BEST movies of all time, Neo (Keanu), plays an average computer programmer in the daytime and a hacker at night. He discovers the true nature of his reality, which is being controlled by machines and decides to wage war against them.

This movie has inspired many youngsters to choose programming as a career. With Keanu able to 'see' lines of code, concepts of loop and recursion are portrayed time and again in this movie.

WALL.E (2008)

How CUTE is this robot!!!

Set in a dystopian future, WALL-E is a garbage cleaning robot who's the only resident on a life-abandoned Earth along with a pet cockroach cleaning up the mess left over by the powerful multi-national 'Buy N Large' corporation.

He meets and falls in love with EVE, a robot sent to find proof that life is once again sustainable on Earth, and the movie revolves around their story.

Tron: Legacy (2010)

A very futuristic movie!

The story goes around how the son of a virtual world designer ends up trapped inside the corrupted world his very father designed and meets an unlikely ally.

The film depicts a thrilling life and death experience of the father-son duo as they try to destroy the malevolent program CLU, which plans to invade the real world.

Pirates of Silicon Valley (1999)

This one is quite humorous and highly underrated! The movie speaks about the founders of Apple and Microsoft Inc., Jobs, Wozniak, and Gates.

It's a must-watch to know how the founders struggled through their college days and ended up founding companies that made the world of technology what it is today!

There you go! We bet you've seen some of these movies already. But they're worth watching again, right? For the first-timers, grab a big bowl of popcorn, because you're in for a ride!

Happy holidays folks 🎉

Never stop building,
