The Hollywood Net

Has there ever been a really accurate representation of the Internet in amainstream American movie? It seems like any computer in a movie has tohave an abnormally large font, make special clicking noises when you type,and frequently say “ACCESSING…”

Strangeland is one example of this, especially since it’s partiallybased around technology and the Internet, rather than just being a moviethat happens to have a computer in it. Perhaps the worst offender,though, is The Net (which somehow spawned a series). Has thereever been a movie where the computers used accurately representedcurrent technology? -ram
