I forgot about Electric Dreams. What a fun movie (when I was 16).

Heading into movies, I expect any mention of computers, especially hacking, to be rife with jargon which together makes no sense and will require massive suspension of disbelief. Think: these are screen writers who need a plot point resolved in a clunky fashion and need to convey this to the audience who also have no technical knowledge. Rather, what we have to know is the hacker downloaded a virus into the defense mainframe with megabyte encryption which blocks the military firewall from tracing his IP address... The great scourge of reality as portrayed by movies are those passionate love scenes which all involve hours of missionary and a dabbling of cowgirl which are apparently euphoric experiences for both partners. Would think if these were soulmates one might have the courage to admit to other enjoying latex nurses or at least ask about anal.

Recently began watching again, and I forget how much I love them doing away with any sense of the appearance of being technically savvy and instead using... anthropomorphic jargon. Those games are often ridiculous without a semblance of basic control schemes with extremely advanced physics engines and inexplicable free world roaming and interaction which would exhaust the most dedicated pen and paper dungeon master, but that is what is amazing is all of them are just meant to be a new fantasy experience rather than honest interpretation of animate computer systems.

To be honest its still more believable dialog then cloud IT service vendor sales pitches.

That bit from Blade Runner was the only one that was prescient.  Well, I guess Bueller was too, since we've had plenty of stories about kids learning how to hack into their schools' absurdly under-protected systems.

I remember watching part of "Sneakers" once (it was much too stupid to sit through, and yes, I know it was '92 so not an 80's movie), and if I remember correctly, the computer genius was blind, but used a monitor.  Cause he was such a genius that he could, I don't know, sense the photons.  That and "Legal Eagles" were the two movies that convinced me that Redford had completely jumped the shark into the Joan Crawford Realm.

He had a mechanical braille teletype thing to read from. Been years since I saw that movie but I think you could see that setup in the van.
