1:49 you actually can if you're doing fixes at the same time and prevention of glitching off using strong codes, it just depends on the coder, FUN FACT, FR don't even look like that BRO

"A more accurate interface would be a console or terminal" Immediatly shows a text editor.

"Mess with the best and die like the rest" Sombra in Overwatch has this has a voice line. I guess as she's a hacker, it's a reference to this movie.

Hacking in movies almost instantly makes me lose interest in it, it's hardly ever realistic. You can clearly tell someone explained something and the producer or something took over and added bells and whistles to make it more exciting for people. Always makes me wonder how inaccurate things are that I don't have knowledge of. That's why these Wired series are so great, but at the same time will ruin a lot of movies for me!

A PDF with an executable (eg. Keylogger) embedded in it is real. You can go ahead and make one on Metasploit.

I remember overhearing a 'Scorpions' episode where they showed some amateur C code and tried to pass it off as a complex algorithm for generating pop music. Not quite hacking but an equal degree of eye bleeding cringe. Also his smile absolutely melts me. Marry me please.

Thanks for explaining what "gooey"/G.U.I., (Graphical User Interface) is after all these years. i'm a little stunned that this guy believes that AI will* happen, *but not with orbs* 😮😄. Not sure how you can't* pwn someone with an email address alone..my kid did it *via iPhone* at age 11. i don't get the Linux thing, so i'll google. ✌

I admire the actors in the movies ( except a few), doing utterly stupid things and act like the smartest men in the world =))

Are you serious???!!! In the beginning he says "You use text code in hackers utilites" and shows an HTML code! I mean ... Really? You just do the videos about what nobody should understand pretending he's an expert?

Wish they did the Jurassic Park scene with Samuel L. Jackson where he can’t access the MainFrame when the Power is off.

Mr Robot has the best hacking scenes....I've frozen frames to look at the syntax and it's always on point.

to say sshnuke isn't a "real tool" is odd. It could be a script the "hacker" created. I have TONS of scripts that I call up daily that aren't "real tools".

I was missing Track Down (known as Takedown outside the USA). But I guess it's more of a documentary than a (fictional) movie

The worst part of that NCIS clip is two people sharing one keyboard simultaneously typing on half the keyboard each.

Something that anyone who has used a computer can identify: When a character types just a few lines of code for a VERY complex action, or suddenly resulting in elaborate design rendering. (Ie Star Trek IV: Scotty hammering out the design matrix for transparent aluminium in just a few seconds.)
