^And sadly, the worst part of that scene is Jethro thinking he stopped the hack by pulling the plug on the PC they were using. Of course he had the excuse of being computer illiterate.

I'm sure the worst part of that scene is that it's written like Jethro stopped the hack by pulling the plug.

Missed that one.
Matt Lanter was in it? Then I assume the character was much more likable than Broderick, pomposity and incorrect line readings aside.

Colossus: The Forbin Project is a somewhat dystopian film that's similar to War Games in premise (a supercomputer is employed to take over the United States' national defense, but it has other plans)

Part 1

Dude, we're not your personal research department. How about this, go to Best Buy or something and start reading the back of DVD boxes.

Sometimes you seem as if you want to see scenes replicated down to the last detail. You may not find the exact same scene that looks the exact same way because each movie is a separate, independent piece of art or creation.

Having said that, here is a list of the 30 best hacker movies according to About.com

Re: Computer hacking or movies where we see innovative use of computer

A few more hacker movies that you may enjoy:

Real Genius
Antitrust
Takedown
Pump Up The Volume (ok, not really about computers, but..)

Wargames is still my favorite, as I was a teenager that was into dialup BBSs at the time, and it really captured the moment for me pretty well.

He is not trolling you, but you shoudl be leaving such evaluations to the forums' moderators anyway.

Considering you resurrected this thread with no content, I am shutting it down.
