Is Hollywood Getting Better At Depicting Hackers?
from the slowly,-but-surely... dept
When the second Matrix movie came out earlier this year, it attracted a lot of attention in the geek world because of the accuracy of the hacking scene (which some feared was too accurate). While there are still some horrible hacking depictions (Swordfish anyone?), it appears that Hollywood is finally making something of an effort to get scenes involving computers and hackers correct. They're actually trying to hire advisors who know what they're talking about, and are getting rid of plot-lines that include computer viruses shown as cartoons on a screen "eating" other files. Geeks worldwide are applauding the better efforts.
