I didn't quite know where to post this, but it has to do with movies, so...

Who is your favorite geek from a movie?

Mine are:
George McFly from "Back to the Future"
Seymour from "Ghost World"
Anthony Michael Hall's character in "The Breakfast Club"

Ok, not strictly-speaking 'movie', but....


Willow.

She's an uber-geek, and gets into hot girl-on-girl action.
That's about as good as it gets !

Gweneth Paltrow as Margot Tennenbaum. Moody theater geeks are the best. And for TFD there is some girl on girl action.

mmmmm..... Jordan!!! I had the biggest crush on her when I saw that movie. I was very disappointed that Michelle Meyrink was just a flash in the pan, and didn't make many more movies [Frown]

I have to agree with Druid, Willow is the best. With Winifred from Angel coming in second.

Hmm.. In actual movies, I think Jet from the movie Tank girl (Naomi Watts) is pretty hot.

John Crichton from Farscape (yeah, not a movie)

Buckaroo Banazai (need I really say the movie's name at that point?)

I think they may be loosely defined geeks, but I would say they fit the bill.

Well, I had to do a little thinking about this, such that I might actually have answer that was more my own, and I finally remembered this:
The Lone Gunmen, from the X-Files - especially Byers. They rock! Mulder & Sculley might make good runners up, for people from the X-Files, and oddly enough, I almost consider Sculley to be more of a geek, with her very cool, scientific manner.

Before coming to this realization, I was going to agree about Willow, because simply put - Willow is awesome (and I'm not saying that because she's a Wiccan lesbian [evil] ). Furthermore, I think I can grok her curious manner of speaking at times - it is more betterer [Big Grin] .

/me misses X-Files & Buffy, from back when they were *great* (the last seasons of both were just sad - and I don't know when I stopped watching Buffy/when it ended...if it ended).

Bored now

Of course, any list of best geeks must include that time-travelling uber-geek The Doctor.

/me needs a sonic screwdriver.

Phoebe Cates in Drop Dead Fred. She dressed like a bloody polygamist in that movie! She was so mousey, but she's a hottie, too.
Audrey Tatu in Amelie. Quiet, but always thinking. She was a total geek in that movie!
Chyler Leigh, Eric Jungmann, Cody McMaims, Samm Levine, and Sam Huntington in Not Another Teen Movie. Need I say more?

Movie geeks;
Seymour from Ghost World was cool, but that's Steve Busemey (spelling may be wrong) and he's usually good in whatever roles he plays.
The Doc in Back to the Future plays a great part, I especially like his models and how he always says 'they may not be to exact scale, i didn't have much time'
As far a TV goes, Willow is an awsome girl and makes a great geek. Fred also makes a good geek as she is very sciencey and often goes into rambles about physics and stuff like that. I may be a bit biast towards these characters though as I am a big fan of buffy and angel.
Also the trio from series six Buffy, Andrew, Warren and Jonathon, they were quite funny.
