Thread: Mac in the Movies
10-07-2003, 01:16 PM #1dzinerGuestMac in the Movies
I posted a thread a while ago about the Cinima display and iSight looking camera in Vanilla Sky. I thought it would be cool to start a thread containing every movie (tv show) you can think of that has Apple products in it.
Friday I went to see Underworld and even though they were using a PC - it had an OS X like operating system.
Just rented Final Destination 2 and noticed the one kid bought an iMac and there was also a girl in the movie using an iBook.
Please add to the list.

Princess diaries my GF made me watch it the other day the girl was using one. The italian job LA heist the hacker kid was using one. In almost any high priced movie they use one as they come with a sort of status.

I forgot about the Zoolander scene. That was so funny. I'll have to check out Cold Creek Manor... poor flat panel.

Jason X - they have a coupple iMacs floating around on the ship, they keep using them when they are bringing that chick back to life and Jason is laying on that table (still frozen).
Those are the macs I saw, didn't finish the movie to see if there were any more.

I had the same idea for this thread after I saw the previous one...
The Recruit: somewhere in the beginning of the film the lead character (forgot the name) searches for files on a Mac.
Now I have a question. If a mac with one of those new flatscreen displays is in sleepmode, does it show a white 'breathing' light on the monitor? If so, than he was typing on a sleeping computer.

Just thought of some more. Office Space showed the Mac OS with a little bit of Windows added to it. I guess they have to do that kind of stuff in the movies. And in The Saint I think Val Kilmer was using a Mac that seemed to have Hi-Tech Kaleidescope running on it. May have to watch that again to make sure.

Just watched About A Boy last night with my girlfriend. Funny movie. Hugh Grant had a G4 cube and Apple Studio Display and there was a kid in the movie who had a grape iMac.

Was just watching The Forensic Files and saw a police officer using an old mac laptop with OS 7, 8, or 9 doing DNA testing/matching. So the Mac isn't just for designers.
