Top-5 Movies about Computers





powerfusion66
So let's face it. Movies about Computers are so few...
At least there are some computer films out there, worth watching.

1. Anti-trust
2. Pirates in Silicon Valley
3. Hackers 2 - Takedown
4. Hackers
5. Wargames

Let's post our favourites, shall we?

Don't forget ...

  • a.i. (2001),
  • Dark Star (1974),
  • Demon Seed (a.k.a. Susan Harris) 1977,
  • 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968) and
  • Colossus (a.k.a. The Forbin Project) 1970

.. 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.

I'm not sure I could come up with a solid five, but here's my best guess:

1.) The Matrix
2.) A.I
3.) Hackers

And then maybe I would throw in Tron, cause it's awesome. =P

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:
The Matrix
Hackers
Office Space
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
2. AI
3. I, Robot

I think 2001: a space oddessy sucks. It ruined it's fame got in the book. Book rox Cool
