    Taken from the film Hackers.

    I am trying to find a film where Tim Robbins plays a Software Developer (Looks a lot like Bill gates) I thought it was Hackers but it's not. Does anybody know the title of the film?

    What's your favourite Film with computers in it?

    Mines Hackers (excellent soundtrack)

    I got the remastered DVD, total class. The amazing thing is they did all those special effects without a single computer.

    Not a bad film. The second one was a bit of stinker though.:toilet

    My favourites would have to be War Games and The Net. Although it's almost painful watching The Net now I loved it at the time.

    I can't think of any film where what they do with computers is anywhere near accurate and The Net is a fine example. Swordfish is another one, when Hugh Jackman is programming that worm, it looks like he's playing a puzzle game.

    What he should have done was hold the gun to the womans head, now that would have been excruciating :)

    If you've got a Morrisons anywhere near you, have a look in there. Saw it on sale for about £3 on DVD last week.

    2nd page of this thread, and no one has mentioned 2001: A Space Odyssey ?? :blink

    Lest we forget HAL, the sinister AI-based supercomputer that almost outwitted those it was designed to serve. And you have to love the little touch that had a poke at the IT world of the time - add one letter to each letter in HAL's name ...8)

    aside from the fact that any computer in hollywood is totally unrealistic...

    sneakers was fun...
    and if the terminator doesn't count as a computer what does...
