Lamest Computer Movie

Never saw most of these movies

...but War Games was LAME!

Good computer movies include "Collossus the Forbin Project"
and the incredibly goofy but enjoyable "The Computer Wore Tennis Shoes."

Antitrust

Seems more of a rehash of Opensource vs Microsoft in a subtle manner, but Hollywood-ised. (Tim Robbins playing an "evil" version of Bill Gates)...Would've been better if they had another character who lacked patience and threw chairs as a form of exercise. Wink

War Games

How about a nice game of chess?

Me neither. I don't have time to watch movies a lot. My favorite movie ever is 'the 300'. I really recommend you check it out.

As for computer related movies, these producers seem to think the audience is a bunch of people who have not idea what the word technology is.

All of the above?

I think the poll needed a "All of the above" option.

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).

Re: All of the above?

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.

Hackers

Unless I am mistaken, isn't this the movie with Angelina Jolie and the guy who tells his friends he got this book on "Unix Operating System"?

Re: Hackers

"Hack the planet! Hack the planet!"

re: Hackers

lolol!

re: hackers?

yeah, that's the one.

Nix This Innovative OS for Its Uninviting Complexity

I had to keep reminding myself that I was not dealing with an extreme case of Arch Linux instead of GNU/Linux. NixOS is more demanding and definitely not a distro for users with anything less than advanced skills. To say NixOS comes with a steep learning curve and lots of hands-on overhead is putting it mildly. If you are a typical Linux user who lacks sysadmin training, avoid NixOS like a malware attack hiding in plain sight. Read more
