Movies As Code is a website that started by Ben Howdle that takes classic Hollywood movies and converts them into hilarious computer codes.

With movies like Inception, Batman Forever, Brokeback Mountain, Star Wars, Finding Nemo, Lord of the Rings, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy and many more, Howdle takes the memorable moments in the movies and writes them up as spoofed coded commentary. Though the codes seem text heavy, they're actually an easy read especially since they're color-coded and definitely worth the time. Movies As Code's mission, as displayed on its front page, is to "free your coding mind" and cites a famous quote from Morpheus in The Matrix: "No one can be told what the Matrix is. You have to see it for yourself." Stats for Encrypted Film Parody Blogs Trending: Older & Warm
