The 1990s Teen Movie You Are Based On Your Zodiac Sign | #predators | #childpredators | #kids


Often described as travelers or wanderers, individuals brought about when the planet is in its Sagittarius phase between November 22 and December 21 might be the type to jump on a plane and bounce to an adjacent continent at the drop of a hat. Then again, wanderlust can also take other forms: philosophical, spiritual, or perhaps even technological — and no teen movie wanders with technology quite like the 1995 techno-thriller “Hackers.” 

One could argue that most teen movies approach the ages between and including 13 and 19 from an essentially conservative, institutionalized ritual-oriented perspective; Characters worry about the prom, grades, graduation, who’s dating who, and who’s a member of which clique.  Meanwhile, the roster of cyberpunks running loose in “Hackers” – under aliases like Crash Override (Jonny Lee Miller) and Acid Burn (Angelina Jolie) — live very active existences largely disconnected from their secondary education. In this movie, high school is a time-consuming inconvenience, not a lifestyle. (The actual lifestyle, of course, is hacking.) 

The plot is hardly realistic, but ’90s kids who forged their own somewhat untraditional path might find themselves identifying with “Hackers,” even if they never unraveled a global corporate embezzlement conspiracy and prevented an ecological catastrophe…or called themselves anything as stupid as “Cereal Killer” (Matt Lillard).
