Actually about a year ago I bought "War Games" which I think is from circa 1984. It starred Matthew Broderick and I think we may even have discussed it here before.
It's quite good movie althought incredibly dated now in what as the cliche goes we now now that we din't know then.
He uses those telephone Modem (They actually used the handset placed on a pad!) connecting at maybe 2-3 kbs to hack into his schools computer and eventually The PENTAGON's or National Defense one.
Course the graphics displayed as he actually enters this hallowed top secret place are possibly the most far fetched part of the whole movie.
In any case it one checking out re computers pre the real Internet as we know it now.
Another two of course from my Teenage years are "Weird Science" which I have seen of late and is very far fetched but isn't meant to be really anything less and "Electric Dreams" which I haven't seen in years so I can't really comment.
Funny it must have been the title of the posting that reminded me of these two!!!
And if ya wanna check them out this is probably the best place to start.
