In War Games I'm pretty sure his comoputer had green text on a black backround.

I can see some in my head, but I can't recall what movies they were from. Scour 80s movies if you're looking for green text on black backgrounds.

The TV show "Person of Interest" features a lot of hacking in every episode. Some of it more realistic (hacking wifi and web-cams), some of it less so (hacking cellphones via bluetooth). But it is one of my favorite new shows this year.

Saw that for the first time the other week while on vacation. I enjoyed it, but it hasn't been picked up here yet by the look of things

I'm not sure it counts as hacking, but I enjoyed the computer duel in Clear and Present Danger. That was more of a race to get a file printed before it could be deleted, though.
