Jokes aside, check out some new movies which will get you thinking:

Source Code derives its name from text written in computer programming language. While the movie probably doesn’t explore computer programming language in-depth, hopefully it will be a good influence on your watching experience. The movie allows the viewer to explore ideas of time travel and technology.

The Adjustment Bureau explores concepts of fate, free will, religion, and politics. Get your brain reeling with thoughts on current political patterns and thought processes behind reasoning.

Atlas Shrugged Part 1 is an adaptation of the first part of Ayn Rand’s magnum opus novel. It deals with philosophies of Objectivism as well as business ethics.

These are just some of the more recent or upcoming movies to delve into academia. Previous movies that deserve mention are Star Trek (2009), National Treasure, Shrek the Third, Pi, and many others. They range from exploring topics such as physics to mathematical proofs to code-breaking. Almost any good techno-thriller or sci-fi can provide some inkling of scientific truth and will hopefully provide you with enough interest to go find facts on your own. The newest one may be Inception which prompted a recent interest in areas of study such as lucid dreaming and the Penrose steps.
