Wow, do we have a special podcast for you today, well it’s special to Mysterious Mike and Amazing Matt. Today your two hosts discuss a film that basically changed their lives, Hackers. This film helped fuel them to the careers they now have and their deep passions for technology. The gents do talk about the movie but not as much as they should have. The talk mainly focuses on how Hackers helped influence Mike’s decision to go into computer programming, public pay-phones, and online gaming over dial-up, yes you read that right youngsters, dial-up online gaming!
Hackers is an amazing movie, Matt and Mike are biased as hell though. When you watch it today with all our technological advances it comes off extremely cheesy. It’s a 90’s movie through and through from the rollerblades to the EDM soundtrack, to the chain wallets. If you grew up in the ’90s like your hosts did this movie will take you back there. Just a friendly reminder that your hosts are super biased in favor of this film, they love it to death! Mike and Matt give Hackers 4 out of 5 Reels. Their freshman high school selves would have given it 5 out of 5 Reels in the ’90s but it’s not the ’90s anymore.
