Wargames. The way Matthew Broderick's character "hacks" into the school's computer system is still the most realistic way it happens in real life.

Yep, exactly. I dunno, but I find most computer sequences in movies aside from ones in sci-fi, to be rather unrealistic, and it's interesting to note that it's one of the earlier movies that does get it right. Most of the time, they're laughably inaccurate. I'm talking about movies or TV shows set in present day when computers are being depicted. Sometimes the concepts are just too simplified.
