    First, are there any movies about internet marketing? I can only think of one and its a bit of a stretch.

    there are 2 movies that just pump me up when it comes to IM. After I watch them I'm back on my computer and grinding like a mofo.

    the first one is wall street. not that sequel crap but the original. For some reason that movie just gets me pumped. something about a come-up to big bucks in the 80's is just exhilerating.

    the second is the only movie I can think of that is related to IM. Middle men. the guys that pioneered making purchases online and skyrocketed the biz with porn. I make money in the adult market so naturally those bastards are idols of mine.

    what about you guys?

    That thai movie.. 'the billionaire'..? not sure of the title.. + subtitles were crap, but someone recommended it here on BHW some time ago and it was really awesome, inspiring stuff (a 18yo who never gives up and becomes a billionaire from nothing)

    Man on Wire is a great movie, even thought it's 80% subtitles. It shows how if you're determined you can do anything.

    Also a lot of movies about hacking or the internet are usually dumbed down for the general public and then made totally unbelievable. eg. Swordfish

    I guess it wouldn't make for an exciting movie if it's just a fat guy sitting at home on the computer for 10 hours.

    hackers.jpg

    They just spoke gibberish, The hacking looked like some tron parody garbage, etc.

    I remember one scene where a kid hacked an ATM making it spit out money and his biggest concern was he didnt have a "handle" as in a cool name. "I need a handle Im nothing without a handle! waaah!" he can hack atms from his home desktop but cant come up with a cool screen name....his biggest concern LOL
