    Lightbulb What did you think of the movie Hackers?

    This is one of my favourite movies - want to hear everyone's comments.

    P.S. sorry but, you asked..........

    Discount the imaging of what the "hacker" sees on the screen and it was very true to what a cracker does (reference to the documentation needed, social engineering, dumpster diving ...etc).

    I am something of a geek and collect movies that I think make a good attempt at portraying the industry. Antitrust, Wargames, Hackers, might pickup the cable movie about Gates and Jobs.

    Cheers,

    1: you do not hack through phone booths with fancy laptops.

    2: you do not hack through phone booths with fancy laptops with 5 of your friends doing the same thing in the same phone booth row.

    3: you do not have graphical filesystems like you see in Hackers or Jurassic Park (..."I know unix"...yeah right).

    Overall, it's an "ok" movie worth watching just to see 1 second of AJ's naked cleavage bouncing around, but for technical expertise, you've got to be joking. I hate the way they make technology look like. It is NOT as glorified or good-looking as they portray it.
    We the willing, led by the unknowing, have been doing the impossible for the ungrateful. We have done so much with so little for so long that we are now qualified to do just about anything with almost nothing.

    The movie was the shyt. I thought it was badass cause i had never seen a movie about computer hackers. hell all i had seen was telnet and tellix. I thought it was wierd that these guys had graphics. But You have to relise this is not a technical movie. A movie about rebellion, and fighting the system. I gave it a 8
