Movies with studying montages for end-of-term blues
May 23, 2015 2:45 PM   Subscribe

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.

IIRC, Legally Blonde has a good one.

Not all of them are studying, but TV Tropes has a list of hard work montages.

I don't have a link, but the first season or two of Felicity has a great finals season study montage. Also, maybe there's a relevant scene in Big Hero Six?

Also, check the Harry Potter movies.

Back to School has this in spades.

Apollo 13 has one of my favourite 'crazy people building things' scenes in ever. It's very tense overall but there's that great bit in the back half of the movie where the space geeks are presented with their requirements and available resources - it's beautiful. Good luck with your studies :)
