Movies with studying montages for end-of-term blues

Hey, my spring term is almost over, and its been kind of brutal! But I rewatched Real Genius last night and am feeling pretty okay about things again. What are some similar movies I can stockpile for future terms? Setting should be university, or maybe something post-university with a research/impossible-thing-to-build-but-hey-they-build-it-anyway angle.

Help, I've got a type-I hypersensitivity to studying

I've been studying full-time (and then some) for board exams. I am enjoying this study period and I think my schedule is pretty balanced and healthy, but the rest of my body doesn't agree. I'm breaking out in hives and feel like I'm an overall inflammed state (think general urticaria, hives, ulcers, 熱氣). Help me push through these next few weeks. [more inside]

Lacking academic motivation...

It's finals week. It's an hour before my calculus exam as I'm typing this out right now. I finished up my reviewing, written up my formula sheet (we're allowed to bring handwritten notes on one 8.5x11 piece of paper). Still, I feel like I'm going to fail the class. If I'm lucky enough, I'll pass the class with a C. [more inside]
