Wired.com has a listing out of the 10 all-time great geeky movies to raise kids on, and I actually haven't seen a couple of them.

1) Star Wars (the first one, people)
2) Harry Potter and the Sorceror's (Philosopher's) Stone
3) The Last Starfighter
4) My Neighbor Toroto
(Princess Mononoke, Howl's Moving Castle, and Spirited Away listed under this one as well, but for older kids.)
5) Time Bandits
6) The Dark Crystal
(They stuck Labyrinth under this one, along with Neverending Story)
7) War Games
8) Chitty-Chitty Bang-Bang
9) Goonies
10) Back to the Future

I've certainly seen 1,2,3,6,7,8,and 10
I suspect I've seen 9, or most of it.

Never seen 4 or 5. Should I someday (in order to be the ultimate geek)?

What else should have been on the list?

ETA: Suggested:
11. Willow ;o)
12: E.T. (schmaltzy, but I do agree)
13: Kiki's Delivery Service (huh?)
14: The Yellow Submarine? (weird choice there)
15: Willie Wonka and the Chocolate Factory (THE OLD ONE, NOT THE NEW ONE)
16: Clash of the Titans (cringingly added)
