And of course, the DoD or FBI or whatever high-security thing it was could be hacked in 60 seconds.

I just sort of assume 'hackers' in movies are mages, or superheroes of some stripe.

Once you make that assumption movies are much more entertaining to watch, at least for me. It basically explains why the can do the flat out impossible, and why you get 'god among men' hackers. They are the magic adept, the arch Mage, etc.


The worst ever has to be that Die Hard movie (4th one? With I'm a Mac guy).

Savage Belief: I'm so sick of this "that couldn't have really happened that way because" bullshiat when it comes to movie plots. Who farking cares? It'a MOVIE. If you want reality, get a farking boring-ass job. Or go to Watts and have a coffee. Movies are an escape from reality. Not a window to it.


I dunno. Sometimes these moments can make the characters look really dumb and ruin suspension of disbelief. Skyfall was a great example of this for me. They capture Javier Bardem who, at this point, has been established as a master hacker. They take his laptop into the bowels of MI6 and plug it right in to their central network. Hell breaks loose.

It would have been equally as silly if they brought back a giant wooden horse from his secret hideout and parked it right inside Parliament.

We take a close look at 2001's Swordfish

Why? I mean, I think I liked it more than a lot of people. I still get a kick out of it, but it is in NO WAY a "close look" type of hacking movie, it's just a fun movie. Did you run out of mold on the cheese in your fridge to take a "close look" at, or something?

Apparently you can get shiatfaced drunk and still code advanced mathematics at a high level without referring to any reference libraries whatsoever.
