Don't forget ...
.. all of them giving computers a soul, usually a very dark and sometimes irrational one.
Zero Cool! Its Hackers for me - great film. Had to renew my video with a DVD the other week. It was only about £4.00 including postage from Play.com. What a great investment. A young Angelina Jolie looking her best - and Johnny Lee Miller is good in this one too.
Sound track is brilliant - turn the surround up high and enjoy.
Crash and Burn!
Of the original list, only War Games appeals to me.... but that is just me. I think the house in War Games was the same one that was in Ferris Bueller's Day Off.....
I don't know if you can consider it as a movie about computer but Office Space is about IT and is very funny.
My version of this list:
1. The Matrix
2. Hackers 2 - Takedown
5. Pirates in Silicon Valley
I'm not sure I could come up with a solid five, but here's my best guess:
1.) The Matrix
And then maybe I would throw in Tron, cause it's awesome. =P
* Matrix, undisputed!!
* Wargames, defenitlly, a classic!
* Tron, another classic, lol
* A.I, actually, I like it, but first after seeing it a few times.
* Johnny Nmemonic, mabye not really about computers, but hey, the dolphin rocks!
1. The Matrix
2. 2001: A Space Odyssey
4. All those episodes of Lost where they have to keep pressing 'The Button'. Awsome!!(zzzzzzzzzz)
I have never seen Hackers 1 or 2.
Just thought of another one.
Spy Kids 3!!!! Go Sly.
You just made me want to go home and watch Hackers again. I haven't seen Hackers 2 is it really better than the first?
My top 5:
Italian Job(the new one) - Seth Green is awesome
Live Free or Die Hard
Oh, just thought about adding Swordfish. I love that movie.
I'm assuming this list of movies includes those about artificial intelligences. In that case, the Terminator trilogy probably rates a mention (although it's not exactly my favourite set of films) - after all, Skynet (and the Terminators themselves) are just self-aware computers....
I'd probably also include I, Robot - another case of self-aware machines.
For me A.I is probably top, because of its connotations about the unknown future.
1. Matrix trilogy
3. I, Robot
I think 2001: a space oddessy sucks. It ruined it's fame got in the book. Book rox
My top-5 Movies about Computers:
1. The Matrix Trilogy
2. Hackers 1,2
3. Pirates in Silicon Valley
4. I, Robot
5. Jonny Mnemonic
I cant say which are the best ones, but the worst movie is...
TRON ! made in the 80s, but thats no excuse
Was just gonna drop in Live Free or Die Hard on the list also
My other favourite would be Matrix, havent watched Hacker as yet.
Hackers and Anti Trust are both great movies!
Havent seen Hackers 2, cant find it at any video store! Is it as good as the original?
1. The Net (Sandra Bullock)
2. Disclosure (Michael Douglas and Demi Moore)
3. The Game (Michael Douglas)
4. Swordfish (Dominic Sena)
5. Spykids (Antonio Banderas)
