Today we watched “WarGames“. It is rather old and outdated, but still is the one of the best movies about hackers. What makes it so good is that people who made this movie did their homework. There are real computers in the movie, real problems, and real solutions. People are displayed and behaved exactly as they should. There are different types of hackers too. Some techniques displayed are real, but somewhat outdated.

What is especially interesting is that most of the things are done right, although it was much more difficult to do them right in the beginning of the 80s (the movie is from 1983) than now. There was no common stereotype by that time since computers were pretty rare still. There are some things done right that are regularly messed up in modern films. That is awesome.

The story is blown out a bit, but still pretty good. 8 out of 10.
