The Social Network Movie Poster

I really enjoyed this, as a programmer myself, it was great to finally see a film where hacking was portrayed like hacking actually is in the real world! Without the bells, whistles, tin-foil hats, 3D visualizations or CGI we’d normally expect from Hollywood.

By comparison, here are some fine prime examples of ridiculous movie hacking sequences. If I took Hollywood as the basis for what hacking or coding actually looked like, I would be under the impression I’ve been doing it wrong all these years.

Oh! And another reason to see this movie, vi has finally made it to the big screen!! For a comprehensive, detailed review of The Social Network, check out

I highly recommend watching Primer, A sci-fi puzzle thriller, it explores the effects of an accidental invention on its two creators. Winner of two Sundance film festival awards it was shot with only $7000. Since joining the Amazon DVD rental service, Ive taken to renting things I wouldnt normally consider buying – but this is a great show. Thanks to petemc for the tip.
