[post transcribed from a paper journal]
I saw the movie “Hackers” on Saturday, and although it wasn’t as realistic as it could have been, I had decided to like it before I went instead of questioning it like so many others, so i thought it was a really good movie. (Cool sentence, eh?) I had been hoping to convince a lot of people to go see it with me, but things didn’t quite work out, and only one person went with me. Luckily, that one person was not only a close friend and hyped about the movie, but he is a fellow hacker. So, all through the film we had a grand time watching the characters doing things we had done, except they did it with all the glamour that Hollywood adds to a movie. Thus, we essentially turned a serious action movie into a comedy merely by pointing out such things as that the basic nature of computers is entirely different from the way it is depicted in the film. Overall, though every move was expected, the movie kept me entertained and was well worth the (Gag) $5.75 I paid for it.
