Of course outside of documentaries, I think anyone would be hard pressed to name anything that is accurately portrayed in movies (or tv). It is after all entertainment for the masses (the mostly publicly educated masses).
exactly my thought, all of these movies are lame as heck, i think tron was the most entertaining though, swordfish most unrealistic, hackers has to be the stupidest and not just as a computer movie.

Good computer movies include "Collossus the Forbin Project"

Going forward, Tux Machines does not have ads. Instead it relies on readers' support and is run as a public service.
