Ini rekomendasi untuk temen2 yang suka nonton film2 tentang hackers, berikut review nya...


==================================================================================================


22# The Net 2.0 (2006)



The life of a young computer systems analyst is thrown into turmoil
when, after arriving in Istanbul to start a new job, she finds her
credit cards useless, her bank account empty, and her identity stolen.


==================================================================================================


21# Firewall (2006)



Firewall stars Harrison Ford as bank security expert Jack
Stanfield, whose specialty is designing infallible theft-proof
financial computer systems. But there's a hidden vulnerability in the
system he didn't account for - himself. When a ruthless criminal
mastermind (Paul Bettany) kidnaps his family, Jack is forced to find a
flaw in his system and steal $100 million. With the lives of his wife
and children at stake and under constant surveillance, he has only
hours to find a loophole in the thief's own impenetrable system of
subterfuge and false identities to beat him at his own game.


==================================================================================================


20# The Net (1995)



Sandra Bullock plays a software engineer who loses her identity to
digital thieves. Filmed during the fanatic years of the then-novel
World Wide Web, this film is now cliched. Nevertheless, fans of Sandra
Bullock will still enjoy watching this B movie.


==================================================================================================


19# Track down (2000)



This is the sensationalized story of famous phone phreaker, Kevin
Mitnick. This is a cult classic that is very hard to find in rental
stores.


==================================================================================================


18# Pirates of Silicon Valley (1999)



This is the flawed storytelling of how Apple and Microsoft came to
be. While this movie got mixed reviews, many people have commented they
loved it. Three dollars at your video store, and you can decide for
yourself if this was a good film.


==================================================================================================


17# The Matrix (1999)



This was such a groundbreaking adventure in reality and
existentialism. No, you will not learn how to break into a Linux server
by watching Trinity port-scanning with "nmap". But this movie is
definitely cool, nonetheless.


==================================================================================================


16# Hackers (1995)



Well, this story was really weak, and the hacking scenes were
nowhere near reality. But you have to watch this just to say you did.
Plus: Angelina Jolie is reason enough for some males to rent this.


==================================================================================================


15# The Conversation (1974)



While you won't see computers in this classic film, the theme of
surveillance and the violation of people's privacy is so masterfully
explored here.


==================================================================================================


14# Antitrust (2001)



This movie has some strong points about it. Two idealistic computer
whiz kids graduate from Stanford, and one of them enters the world of
private sector programming. Sure enough, these two programmers find
themselves in the middle of cybercrime scandals. Definitely worth
renting for three bucks.


==================================================================================================


13# Real Genius (1985)



There is only about 5 minutes of actual "hacking" in this comedy,
where Laslo "brute-forces" his way into the defense network, and Kent
and Mitch do phone bugging. But there are laughs aplenty in this fun B
movie. Definite smile factor if you like playful and quirky humor
movies.


==================================================================================================


12# Mission Impossible (1996)



While many people no longer like Tom Cruise, his first MI movie did
have I.T. and computer hacking sequences. Some good action, too.


==================================================================================================


11# The Thirteenth Floor (1999)



A very extreme version of "The Sims", this movie is about
scientists who create a virtual world where participants plug in and
take over a computer character's life. The characters are unaware of
their puppet existence, but then a real life murder shakes the
foundation of the game.


==================================================================================================


10# Swordfish (2001)



Over-the-top violence, preposterous situations, sexy women, and
outstanding special effects make this a great popcorn rental. No, don't
bring your brain to watch this, but if you like techno-thrillers,
definitely rent this. John Travolta is the slimy villain, Hugh Jackman
is the studly hero hacker, and Halle Berry is the mysterious damsel.


==================================================================================================


09# The Italian Job (2003)



Modern heist movies always involve some sort of hacking. This
particular heist movie is extremely entertaining, especially when the
supposed true inventor of "Napster" is the main hacker.

At least 20 minutes of hacking footage in this actioner. Definitely worth renting if you haven't seen it.


==================================================================================================


08# Foolproof (2003)



A lower-budget movie about hobby bank robbers, this was a
delightful surprise to many viewers. Ryan Reynolds and his friends
"virtually" rob banks for fun, but are blackmailed into doing a heist
for real. This is a good action rental.


==================================================================================================


07# eXistenZ (1999)



A David Cronenberg film, this is the creepiest entry in the list. A
game designer creates an artificial reality game that plugs directly
into people's minds. The line between reality and game then blurs in a
violent and gruesome way. This is very much a powerful art film, and
not for everyone.


==================================================================================================


06# The Score (2001)



Edward Norton and Robert De Niro are fabulous in this heist flick.
In a clever plot to rob a Montreal customs house of some royal
artifacts, Norton and De Niro must break into the security systems with
the help of a socially-awkward hacker who lives in his mother's
basement. Ten minutes of hacking, and 100 minutes of phenomenal robbery
storytelling!


==================================================================================================


05# Sneakers (1992)



While dated, this movie was groundbreaking at the time, and is
still charming to this day. The story revolves around two college
buddies who take different paths in life. One becomes an ethical
hacker, and the other...well, he is not quite so noble. Some great plot
twists and comic scenes make this a good way to spend a Saturday
afternoon at home.


==================================================================================================


04# Revolution OS (2001)



This documentary tells the story about the Linux operating system,
and how it forwarded the philosophy of "open source" and free
intellectual property. Not an action movie, but definitely interesting
for people who want to learn more about why computer culture is the way
it is. If you can find a copy of this, definitely rent it.


==================================================================================================


03# Die Hard 4: Live Free or Die Hard (2007)



Leave it to Bruce Willis to save the world from uber hackers.
Macintosh advertising personality, Justin Long, plays the reluctant
programmer caught up in an digital terrorism scheme. Like Swordfish,
this movie has over-the-top violence and outrageous action sequences,
but if you liked the Die Hard series, definitely see this.


==================================================================================================


02# Wargames (1983)



Yes, this movie is very old, but it is still a pivotal film in many
viewers' minds. A young man finds a back door into a military computer
that is linked to the nuclear defense grid of the United States. A
preposterous plot, but a compelling commentary on nuclear war and the
destruction of the human race. You have to see this movie just to say
you have seen it.


==================================================================================================


01# Tron (1982)

[img]http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0449077/[img]
A classic! A hacker is transported into the digital universe inside
a computer, and must survive combat as a cyber gladiator in order to
stop the villanous Master Control. The imagination behind this movie
made big ripples in the science fiction world, and today, Tron is a
cult classic that every computer user should see at least once.
