So let’s get started.


STAR WARS

If you are looking for geek movies Star Wars come at the first number. Star Wars is divided into three trilogies and can be considered as ‘spacewalker saga’.

HARRY POTTER

This franchise is based on the fantasy magic novel by J.K. Rowling. It contains 8 fantasy films. The plot is the journey of a small boy whose fate faces the great sorcerer of all times, Lord Voldemort. This is the best movie for geeks. I have watched this series of films a dozen times and never get bored of it.

The one lesson I learned from it is “It’s okay if you stand out of the crowd, the fate has written great things for you to achieve.”

The list of films under this franchise is mentioned below:

● Harry Potter and the Chamber of secrets

● Harry Potter and the Prisoners of Azkaban
