Jeff Goldblum in The Fly, pulling an all-nighter to write the code on how to deal with "skin".

As a controls guy, I thought the movie had a serious plot flaw.  So he gets teleported and inadvertently spliced at DNA level with the fly.  If you were building that machine, and could process that bandwidth of data, wouldn't you keep a copy?  And if you did, couldn't you go back and sort out fly from guy and reverse the process?

And we know Jeff G is brilliant...he wrote a virus to take down an alien ship, and even reprogrammed their displays. Fly DNA? Child's play!

Yeah, but smart aliens would have had a password on the WiFi. Probably in characters humans can't even pronounce.

I think they used EBCDIC, not ASCII.  Those aliens were definitely an IBM shop.

Plus, he was the first to figure out recreating dinosaurs might be a bad idea.  Smart guy!

Yeah...well...there were probably a few small plot issues. But admit it, Bill Pullman was an awesome president!

I think IBM was found to be the Nazgul (at least the lawyers cause they could darken the sky with them).  Do Nazgul count as aliens?

"Not long ago, the Black Gate of Armonk swung open. The lights went out, my skin crawled, and dogs began to howl. I asked my neighbor what it was and he said, 'Those are the nazgul. Once they were human, now they are IBM's lawyers.'" (IBM is headquartered in Armonk, New York).
