Angela Bennett: [dares Devlin to press the "Escape" button] Really?

Ruth Marx: [shocked] Goddamn it, you're in the mainframe. It's eating through Gregg's entire system. Do something!

The aliens in Independence Day used the old Mac OS. They could cross the galaxy but they couldn't invent a Pentium processor.

I think the thing that bugged me the most throughout the 80s and 90s and even in the 2000s and 2010s on both TV and in movies is that computers make a "beep" every time you press a key. If you're typing, they beep a lot. Every character you enter on the screen is accompanied by a speaker beep.

And the second worst thing is when every computer virus, program, and alert sounds like Atari 2600 Pac Man. Not just a single sound from the game, but the whole game- The opening tune, the dot-eating, the power pill eating, the ghost-eating, the dying... Everything.

Every kind of program made these sounds. Every virus. It was like foley artists had only one "computer sounds" recording, and it was Atari 2600 Pac Man.

What kind of sick fark would make their program sound like Atari 2600 Pac Man?!?!

I don't get why people bring up using the Mac to hack the alien ship. They make it clear early on, when they first get to Roswell, that ALL OUR TECHNOLOGY was taken from reverse-engineering the crashed ship's contents. Therefore, the Mac is based on the aliens' computers.

It's simple. It may be dumb, but it's a simple explanation that everyone ignores.

Thank you! That sound has been in everything ever! Wakka wakka wakka no matter what the game is, the program is, the virus is.

The bullshiat in movies:

1) there's some guy typing. No hacker types in the real world, everything's pull-down menus.

2) the hacker has a $5000 48-inch screen. In real life the guy who does the real work is stuck with a shiatty 17-inch CRT; his boss gets the big screen so he can do PowerPoint.

3) nobody ever has microtorrent downloading movies or porn in the background. Seriously? This is your hacker?

Holy crap, yes.  It was always 2600 Pac Man.  Except when it was 2600 Pac Man on the screen, then they used 2600 Donkey Kong.

My favorite is the license plate shot they took from space that's a white rectangle until they say "ENHANCE!" and it's a crisp picture with a crystal clear number.

/and FL license plates are on the back of the car, assholes!

That's an actual, real Unix shell called FSN. It's primarily meant for large industrial control applications - so it is even being used in the right application too.

Came here to mention this very thing. I know it's just a dramatic device but imagine how annoying that would be in real life.

Oh, Hollywood actually had it right for once.  My gripe with the scene was how it got presented.

It's a movie, dummy. They need an audio queue to tell you, the audience, what they're doing. They're trying to tell a farking story. It's the same principle behind why night scenes are brightly lit -- because you can't see the god damn characters if it were portrayed realistically.

If movie computers were lifelike, there'd be no indication that the user was doing anything and the camera doesn't want to focus on the monitor, it wants to focus on the user. Also, keyboards and command prompts make for more frenetic activity than folders and mouse clicks, so you rarely see a genuine GUI interface (unless its something futuristic like Jurassic Park).

Also: The aliens are a telepathic species so they would have no concept of firewalls or security (or viruses), hence why Goldblum could log onto their system so easily.

It's still ridiculously farfetched, but it's a neat and tidy explanation for something that doesn't really require that level of depth.
