Hackers - Panam Building, or Met Life Building?
At the beginning of the movie, when Dade and his mother are in the airplane, there is a bird's eye shot of New York City. We see the Panam building. (It's a huge, flat building that has PANAM in large, white letters on the top of it). The only problem is that the movie was made in 1995. In the late 1980's, (I forgot the precise year,) the PANAM building was changed to the MET LIFE building. Towards the end of the movie while Dade and Kate are rollerblading down Park Avenue trying to get to Grand Central Station to hack with the other's, we see what was the PANAM building at the beginning of the movie, except now it's the MET LIFE buildng. Can we all say together...re-used footage?

I'm not sure if this is a slip-up or not. When I went to New York and did the tourist thing, the guy on the double-decker bus said that MET LIFE wasn't allowed to change the PANAM sign because of a protected bird that had nested in the sign. I'm not sure when it was they were able to change it, but it wasn't entirely impossible for it to have happened during filming. Then again stock footage is used alot.
