    "Also Road Warrior and others..."

    Loved those movies. As I was filing through my mind(trying to think up some of my favorite movies) I somehow passed them by, action movies are truly riveting. Goes to show that fights, shooting, flaming cars, and a good jaw crunch never grows dull!

    wow...

    I can't believe it... noone said some of my favorite movies... The Last of the Mohicans, Entire James Bond Series(My Favorites: Goldfinger, Goldeneye), Alien Series(1 and 2 were the best), Gorillas in the Myst, The Hunt for Red October, The Fugitive and Congo(Even though the book was 100% BETTER).

    Edit: Oh and Indy Jones, Mission Impossible, Mothman Prophecies, Me Myself and Irene, Halloween and The Shining. There all done.

    It's possible, in fact, it's been done.

    In terms of "realistic fiction" computer movies, I think antitrust was one of the better and more realistic ones. That's not really saying much though considering its competition is movies like "The Net" and *cringes* "Hackers."

    oooooooooooooooooooooohhhh.... The Net, how could I forget this one on my list *g*

    Is it realistic ? Not quite, but better than most. Does it feature Sandra Bullock ? Yes. So what

    She was so Blonde, she spent 20 minutes looking at the orange juice can because it said "Concentrate."

    When in doubt, read the FAQ.
    Then ask a smart question.

    Uhh...yeah very realistic. I think some of the most reaistic parts were where the dude had secret cameras in every good programmer's bedroom, I liked the fact that the cameras enabled the viewer to pefectly read small letters from a computer screen at an angle of 45 degrees... Oh yeah, and I totally believed the part where the dude has cameras inside soda machines and that people were watching the cameras at the exact moment that the other dude was near it...

    I met him at MSU when he was making Evil Dead. If you like that one, check out Return of The Living Dead. Kind of a satire on the Night of the Living Dead. Had some great lines. In one scene, a bunch of punk rockers are walking down the street, and one says "Hey, where's Bill?" "Bill got a job." "A job!! What a d**k!"

    Ha, yeah, that's why I said "in comparison to other fictional computer movies"

    "Hackers" movie logic: "Let's hack into the school computer and make the sprinklers go off" [sarcasm]... Because we all know that they're hooked up to the internet...[/sarcasm] Or how about at the end when the guy is working with that 3D interface watching his code get hacked, at least I think that's what was happening, I forget. There were so many other stupid things, but I've tried to push that movie out out of my brain as it was taking a dump on my imagination.

    You know, I think the TV show "Alias" (the greatest show ever
    created) is the most accurate when dealing with computers.

    On tonight's episode (spoilers ahead) Marshall actually used "ping"
    to alert SD-6 to his position (he was captured, and his captors
    wanted him to write a program. Which he did, but when they
    started the program, it turned out he wrote PONG. Then he
    started laughing at them. Almost got killed. Very funny)..

    Anyway, the people at SD-6 traced the IP address to Mexico
    City (I think that's where it was) and rescued Marshal.

    Edit: Here's a thread on their forums that talks about the
    computer stuff.... http://sd-1.com/boards/index.php?act...64e2308c383766

    Yesterday, I saw Unusuall Suspects, it's a great movie...

    >>Hackers
    That's one of the worst movies I've ever seen...
    Even Sword Fish is better than Hackers...
    none...
