Looking for movies with a hacking/cracking theme to watch

I am a big fan of movies about hacking/cracking computers or networks. I've already seen these movies below:
  • Wargames
  • The Net
  • Net 2.0
  • Hackers
  • Swordfish
  • Sneakers
  • Live Free or Die Hard
  • Track Down
  • AntiTrust
  • Pirates of Silicon Valley

These are what I can remember now. Does anyone know anymore movies of this theme. I prefer the language of the movie to be USA English speaking or UK English.

It don't matter if the movie was a blockbuster hit or a flop.

Much obliged

Summer Wars.

The original language is not English, but this is a good one.

To a lesser extent, both of David Fincher's last two movies (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and The Social Network) include hacking themes. They are also excellent.

Thanks dugan. I just added the social network to my netflix queue.

The Millenium trilogy. I actually only wacthed the first two, and the original one, not the US version (I guess there are no many differences between them). It has some hacking/cracking component and the plot caught my attention from the beginning.

EDIT: Ahh, I see dugan also mentioned the film (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo).

Wargames II
The Code Conspiracy
Terminal Entry
Jumping Jack Flash (marginal)
The Recruit

meets sci-fi

The Forbin Project
The Matrix Trilogy
The Core

Depending on how loose the criteria is many more eg: 2001: A Apace Oddesy, Descent, Johnny Mnemonic, etc

Almost every Hollywood movie contains some scene where an unbreakable code is solved at the last second, one digit at a time.

Been busy for quite a spell, anyway thanks for the new replies and suggested titles.
