Mine used to be War Games. I also liked Sneakers. Hackers is fun and had a 
great soundtrack. I think a lot of it had to do with just seeing it and it 
being computer related, although the idea is a bit far fetched looking 

When I was young there were some other run-ups. Disney's B.R.A.T. Patrol 
had modified TRS-80 model 100s, that was a fun movie.

If you haven't seen it, check out Whiz Kids. It was a TV series that was 
good but unfortunately all of the copies in the wild are bad.

Of course there are other hacker movies. Laughted at The Net because it 
seemed silly, but it had the true heartthrob in it.. <3 The US Robotics 
Courier HST Dual Standard! Of course we laughed at Emojis but now that 
Slack has taken over many a workplace ... it's full of emjois. Guess it 
predicted the future.

Jumping Jack Flash is another often left out hacker movie. Dumb 
terminal/mainframe even!

Of course Real Genius is awesome, but I don't think of it as a computer 
movie. It involves another hobby of mine, laser show systems. But I think 
I'm sticking with War Games.
