The Net: Good, Clean Psychopathic Fun

This week, we’re traveling back to the 90s, when the internet was relatively new and very slow and weird, for a dated thriller that feels oddly relevant today: The Net.

In it, Sandra Bullock plays an isolated computer programmer and Jeremy Northam a leader of the evil hacking syndicate that’s out to get her, via some particularly vicious and invasive identity theft. And since neither of us has seen it, we’ve brought in Emily Cureton to be our guide.

Be sure to watch before listening, since as always, spoilers abound. You can watch free with ads on Crackle, or rent or buy from the usual suspects: Vudu, iTunes, Amazon, and Google Play.
