65 - Swordfish

Improbable Smarts VS Impossible Coolness: Dawn of Hackers. My god, the early 2000s were the coolest time to be alive. Need proof? Check out this untold tale of the X-men, where Wolverine and Storm form an uneasy alliance with John Travolta. Three incredibly attractive people helping each other crack codes, steal from the government and sunbathe in the nude. So how come critics hated it? Listen to Alex and Julio do their best to redeem this forgotten treasure from the beginning of the century! There are explosions! Computers! Vinnie Jones! Don Cheadle! And that Halle Berry scene EVERYONE knows.
