I was around ten years old when I first saw Weird Science. One of the benefits of being raised by divorced parents was I kinda picked my own stuff with little discourse. For those who don’t know, Weird Science was a movie written and directed by 80’s movie GOD (and I do not say that lightly, the man was a God), John Hughes. Yes, Ferris Bueller and Breakfast Club John Hughes. Weird Science was about two virginal geeks who get picked on and can’t get a girlfriend so they finally end up using their computer to make one. A thunder storm happens, some movie magic goes down, and bam, stunning, real woman comes to life and is their to do their bidding. Think Frankenstein with nicer tits and less corpse parts and you have a decent idea. Yes, insane, but don’t forget. This was the 80’s and this was John Hughes. The man could do no wrong and this insane movie proved it. And also, in this writer’s honest opinion, this flick files itself as one of the best geek movies ever made.
I will now proceed to tell you why this oft misinterpreted movie is the holy grail of nerd movies.
