We discuss 10 Movies like BlackBerry you must watch. Add these well-recommended and highly-rated films to your watch list.

There is an art to the process of making a film that is probably more suited to being a business documentary.

Taking a subject that may at first appear more suited for viewing in a classroom and somehow making it an entertaining and enjoyable movie is more complex than you might think, and the writers and directors of such projects have to find a way of getting the information across without sending the audience to sleep.

BlackBerry follows the rise and fall of the world’s first smartphone and handles the subject with a wry look at the world of innovation, investment, and workplace relationships.

It manages to win over viewers with humor and style, and we hope that this article will adopt a similar theme as we provide you with ten films like Blackberry you must watch.

10 Movies like BlackBerry

Air (2023)

Hollywood’s very own Batman and Robin, Matt Damon and Ben Affleck get back together to embrace everything 80’s and give us the background on probably the world’s greatest training shoe.

The film follows Damon in pursuing Michael Jordan as Nike struggles against Adidas and Converse to sign the up-and-coming superstar for a new line of sneakers.

Pirates of Silicon Valley (1999)

Steve Jobs and Bill Gates are under the filmic microscope in a biopic that looks at the birth of Apple and Microsoft.

Noah Wylie plays Jobs, and ex-Breakfast Club geek Anthony Michael Hall is Gates in this story of two companies that changed the world.

Tetris (2023)

The world was taken by storm by Tetris, the video game, and this movie traces the story of how Henk Rogers embarks on a quest to gain the rights to the game from its Russian creator at the height of the Cold War.

Although technically different products, this is another fascinating look at the lengths people go to to get their products out there.

The Founder (2016)

Recently resurrected classic Batman, Michael Keaton, plays Ray Kroc, whom many of you will not immediately recognize.

However, Kroc is the original entrepreneur behind MacDonald’s, and this almost bitter-sweet entry on the list follows an extraordinary tale of ambition and corporate greed.

The Social Network (2010)

More associated with films such as Gone Girl and Fight Club, David Fincher must have seen a way to turn this tale of the origin of Facebook into something more than its basic premise.

The behind-the-scenes story of robotic human impersonator Mark Zuckerberg, and his rise to power through Facebook, was a fascinating insight sparkled by Fincher’s darkly comic stylings.

Pinball: The Man Who Saved The Game (2022)

Set in New York in the ’70s, we follow struggling writer Roger Sharpe and his love of pinball machines.

However, as Roger starts to get his life on track, finding work writing for a magazine and meeting his future wife, he discovers that pinball is banned in New York as it was considered gambling.

Roger sets his sights on overturning the ban and finds his work-life balance in trouble.

Radioactive (2019)

Similarly themed but more philanthropic is Radioactive, the story of the amazing and world-changing work done by Marie Sklodowska-Curie.

Although the work and research done are all based on fact, this narrative borrows heavily from a graphic novel, Radioactive: Marie & Pierre Curie: A Tale of Love and Fallout, by Lauren Redniss.

Tesla (2020)

Perhaps playing fast and loose with some of the more historical accuracies of the story, Tesla stars safe pair of hands Ethan Hawke as the titular scientist, who was seemingly just beaten to the finish line by Thomas Edison in his quest for using electricity.

Still, he had the last laugh as Edison didn’t end up with his own line in electric cars.

The Big Short (2015)

An A-list cast, including gravelly American psychopath Christian Bale, brings this incredible film to life.

Set in 2006, the film highlights a gambit made by a group of investors who make a play against the US mortgage market.

Three separate but connected narratives show how thin the bubble skin of the economy in the US was, making this both scary and fascinating.

Glengarry Glen Ross (1992)

Along the theme of ambitious and driven individuals reaching for financial glory at the cost of anything else, you have to include this star-struck movie, adapted from the play of the same name.

Al Pacino, Jack Lemmon, Alec Baldwin, Alan Arkin, the list goes on in a tale of salespeople fighting for leads and desperate for bonuses at any cost.
