Ever since we started the Cult Film Club podcast we’ve enjoyed spending some time in each episode discussing the potential of the selected film in terms of where the story could go if it were ever furthered.

There are some films we cover here at the Cult Film Club that we really love, and others that we REALLY Freaking LOVE.  Hackers is undoubtedly one of the latter.  In fact we love this flick so much that we could have easily made this a list of 100 things we love about the flick, but we restrained ourselves.  So here are the 30 things that we…well, you get the...
