Nice choices, and a good frame to pick for "War Games" there's an Altail 8800 in the background.  I really think of it as the first hacker movie, for a while vendors were even calling automated dialing software a "War Games Dialer".

 

Great inclusion for "Sneakers", when I saw the title of your article I thought of "Sneakers" first.

Good catch, tekochip. I didn't realize that was an Altair 8800 in the background. Hard to believe that 30 years have gone by since that movie, and 40 years have gone by since the creation of the 8800.

Rob, we can't forget Independence Day - one of the most awesome movies ever...or Jumpin' Jack Flash if for nothing else then for the great Stones song it is named after. My favorite from the list is Live Free or Die Hard - now that was intense! With the older movies it is amazing to see how fiction has become reality...

Nice list Rob. Loved to see The Italian Job in the list, it's my all-time favorite movie.
In my view The Matrix really was a next step into the hacker movies, as from then onwards this genre has expanded very quickly. The Lawnmower Man in the list reminded me of another movie "Field of Dreams", but that's more towards the fiction genre, maybe it will come in that list.
