8 Movies About Software Ex to Watch When You’re Bored at Home

Software engineers are constantly working on something, and it’s easy to get burned out. When you work all day long, sometimes all you want to do is sit at home and watch a movie. This list includes 8 movies about software engineering that will keep your mind off of work for a couple hours!

Spirited Away: This is a Japanese movie about a young girl who wanders into an abandoned amusement park and gets turned into a giant pig. The plot is not strictly tied to software engineering, but the animation style of this film will make your mind wander from work for hours!

As a Japanese anime and live action movie about the use of psychotropics or dream inducing drugs in therapy that enter someone’s brain via surgical implantation, this is an interesting take on what can happen when we play with our minds through technology instead of just letting it be as something pure or untouched.

 As an anime with groundbreaking visuals this takes us into something new that was just waiting to be discovered by our technology-driven society: another world inside computers and gaming systems for people who want more than mere entertainment from their leisure time.

 One of the best movies about everything, John Travolta stars as an expert hacker who gets his hands on a security system for banks and corporations that he uses to steal millions from them with no problem whatsoever.

 This is another movie in which there are some questions we must raise: Is it immoral to take advantage of someone’s ignorance? And should we be able to hack into anything if I can’t see what might happen? It sure makes us think!

“The Matrix,” “Existenz,” and “Swordfish.” These three movies give us a glimpse into the world of computer hackers and how they take advantage of software engineers to steal thousands, if not millions, from banks all over the country.

*Swordfish_. One of the best movies about everything, John Travolta stars as an expert hacker who gets his hands on a security system for banks and corporations that he uses to steal millions from them with no problem whatsoever.

[Wikipedia]. This is another movie in which there are some questions we must raise: Is it immoral to take advantage of someone’s ignorance? And should we be able to hack into anything if I can’t see what might happen? It sure makes us think! “The Matrix,” “Existenz,” and “Swordfish.” These three movies are all about hacking in some way.

The Matrix is the best movie on this list, but it’s not just for hackers-it’s a story of deception and self-reflection that has inspired countless people around the world to think differently. In “Existenz,” we see how an artificial intelligence company starts to question its ethics when they create robots capable of feeling pain and fear, while in “Swordfish” John Travolta stars as one of the most elite computer hackers who can break into any system imaginable with no problem whatsoever–until he meets his match!
