Best, Worst Flicks About 'Net

Christopher Null, in PC World, has compiled his five best, and five worst, movies that are either about the Internet or use it as a plot device: The good:

The Matrix (1998): Keanu Reeves bends bullets.
Me and You and Everyone We Know (2005): Meeting people online equals comedic gold.
Hackers (1995): Campy cult classic that depicts hackers as heroic outlaws.
Startup.com (2001): Documentary about the rise and fall of dot-coms.
AntiTrust (2001): A "guilty nerd pleasure."
The bad:

The Net (1995): An unfathomably dated version of the Internet.
Swimfan (2002): Web killer stalks a swimmer.
You've Got Mail (1998): Feels like a two-hour America Online commercial.
The Chatroom (2002): Meeting people online doesn't equal comedic gold.
FearDotCom (2002): A site so scary it kills people.
