    Hackers is by far the worst movie.

    Look its a virus. But it looks like pacman in the file manager.
    Since the beginning of time, Man has searched for the answers to the big questions: \'How did we get here?\' \'Is there life after death?\' \'Are we alone?\' But today, in this very theatre, you will be asked to answer the biggest question of them all...WHO LIVES IN A PINEAPPLE UNDER THE SEA?

    It's general chit-chat, designed for posts that nobody cares about. Remember the non sensical thread now...

    As for the worst hacker movies, there are others on the list that rank as a really bad hacker/computer movie:

    1. The Matrix (all three) for some reason, this movie is a favorite among geeks. I am geek, but never liked the movies. I sit through 1/2 hour and watch something else instead.

    2. I never seen Hackers. I heard a lot of bad press about it.

    3. Swordfish - Has a lot of action and a wet dream of the person who sits on IRC all day long hoping his quest for "rewt" and cracking programs will get him a chick like Halle Berry. In reality, most resort to pr0n from newsgroups and enpornium. Of course, we all want to be so good we are able to crack a password while somebody gives you head, but was the password MD5'd? I kinda doubt it. Some dude made a flash movie and made it look real. heh.

    4. Assasins- There was an interesting look at an Apple laptop where the lead character uses some strange IM program to talk about his contracts. I was worried the chat program was not over SSH or something. Now with Homeland Security, that would not work anymore.

    and the list goes on and on. The bottom line is, any movie based on a real hacker/cracker would be boring because the movie will be something like this:

    "Script Kiddies: The Real Deal"

    scene 1: Some kid is waking up, checks e-mail, fires his port scanner up and opens IRC to #kiddies. While he is waiting for hosts, he takes a **** and gets some cereal. A real breakfast will take time away from IRC. He scarfs his breakfast down and scans hosts for 2 hours. In that two hours, you see him do everything from chatting and whacking off to NNTP porn.

    scene 2: w00t! He finds serveral vulnerable hosts. After getting root on some servers, he changes some front pages to "I 0wn you" and whacks off to it. Cracking gets him excited.

    scene 3: He is so bored. Takes another **** and eats a snack. Scans some more and looks for warez on bittorrent.

    ahh forget it. I am getting bored already.

    well, as you all know movies are made for entertainment, not for their realism. personally i like all 3 movies.

    if you want a real hacker movie, then you should watch a documentary, but every movie that is created in hollywood is blown out of propertions to entertain the bigger audience.

    what would be nice about a movie about hackers if all you would see is some text on a screen , technical terms and a lot of research?? i think most people would not want to see it, so the moviemaker doesn't make money, so the moviemaker doesn't make the movie....

    regardless of if you are interested in real hacking, i doubt you would like to see a movie like that...
    i personally prefer a good action / comedy with Eddie Murphy or Jackie Chan, but movies like LOTR, Harry Potter and so many others are also nice to watch

    just my 2 dollar

    I liked Jurassic Park but that wasn't the only thing wrong with it..it got some flak for placing Cretaceous Period dinosaurs in the Jurassic period...apparently they chose the name Jurassic only because it sounded cooler.

    I liked Hackers too...but mostly because of Angelina Jolie.

    You forgot the one that started it all...the one with whats-his-name( from the movie Glory) who sets the missiles flying...and let's not forget the kid in Mercury Rising with Bruce Willis.
