I put together a list of movies that i would consider "Hacker Movies".
Tell me your Fav?

P.S. Honestly i could type out the whole big long description of this whole thing but what would be the point. If you are really interested in the movies then Google them.


Hackers(1995)
Image
This one i think is the movie that inspired me to become a hacker. Personally I love the movie i hope some of you can relate. I honestly just watched this 20 min ago.




The Matrix(1999)
Image
Another great movie. I believe i've seen it mentioned in the forums from time to time.


Tron(1982)
Image
This is a classic i'm not sure if you have all seen it or seen the newer version. but i for one will always like the original the most out of the two of them.


WarGames(1983)
Image
This movie is great. I think it shows just how much "Fun" we hackers can have and though this movie is very old i had to include because it was so fun to watch.


WarGames: The Dead Code (2008)
Image
This one is a sequel to WarGames. I myself haven't watched it. The reviews say it was an OK movie 4.5/10 rating.


Sneakers(1992)
Image
This one I have seen. Though I'm not sure why i didn't include it in the original post. This one is a pretty good movie with a rating of 7/10. I myself greatly liked the movie in fact i just watched it last night.


Antitrust(2001)
Image
I watched Antitrust quite a while ago and my memories of it are a bit vague though i remember it being a relativly good movie. This movie has a rating of 6/10.


Takedown(2000)
Image
I have watched this movie once before and i felt it was quite interesting. Great movie! Has a rating of 6.1/10. It is a movie based on the capture of a computer hacker by the name of Kevin Mitnick.

Pirates of Silicon Valley(1999)
Image
This is a really good movie. It is About the history of apple and Microsoft. This movie has a rating of 7.1/10.


Code 2600(2011)
Image
This movie documents the Info-Tech age. I'm told that some Hackers play a role of explaining what Tech has become in the sense of hacking and security in the movie. I have not seen but hope to very soon. This movie has a rating of 8.8/10.


Hackers in Wonderland(2000)
Image
This is a documentary about hackers in the U.K. It includes interviews about what drives them to hack. I have yet to watch it and will later include what i thought of it.


Hackers Wanted(2009)
Image
This also a documentary includes famous hacker Adrian Lamo and his hacking adventures. It got a rating of 6.8/10.
It was a pretty good movie from my point of view.

They actually made a 2nd one called "War games: The dead code" not as good as the first but was more recent.

Also, another old movie that might be able to fall into this category was the movie "Sneakers". Awesome movie even though it's somewhat dated now.

Definately on board with hackers, It got me interested in hacking as well.

Another movie that should be added to the list would be Antitrust.

Well, if you're going to keep adding to the list.... Check out "Takedown", it's the Kevin Mitnick story. Once again it's not like Limdis's favorite movie "Titanic" but it's still a good watch.

I'd vote for pirates of silicon valley
Its about the early years of apple and microsoft, although not so much about "hacking" and more about the business(selling blueboxes and stealing code/design should count for something)
+ I think we would all count the Steve Wozniak as a real hardware hacker.
