Really Stupid Computer-Related Movie Mistakes

One thing I really really hate while watching movies as geek is the factually incorrect sequences related to computers in most movies. After all, do they think that NOBODY in the movie going public is going to notice anything? :p Here are some really pathetic computer-related movie mistakes:

And I know it doesn’t fit in here, but there’s one more MAJOR mistake I’d like to point out from another one of my all time favorite movies, Armageddon. In the scene where we see Ben Affleck’s space shuttle crash on the doomsday asteroid, you’ll see fire burning at the debris site! Now any person with an elementary knowledge of science knows you require oxygen for a fire, and there’s none in outer space, which is why they need to go around in goofy spacesuits. Since it’s shown in the movie that the spaceship is hit by space debris and depressurises, it’s a real big mistake, really really stupid to show fires at the crash site.

    In The Net, an Airport scene shows a couple of TV screens with the Microsoft’s famous blue screen of death. Funny!

    You no longer need brains. Maxxuss created a patch that is now compiled as a DVD ISO. A US cop has more time on his hands than an Indian cop taking bribes. So he may have just enough time to install Mac OS on a non-Mac computer.

    Look, yes, a US cop COULD have installed it. But a cop breaking copyright laws in the US installing pirated OS? Need to take THAT with a pinch of salt, because piracy is more prevalent HERE. But you see, there’s a pattern to this madness – ‘The Departed’ and ‘The Constant Gardener’, both Warner Bros movies, both show Dell PCs / laptops being used, but both show Mac OS being used. It seems as if Warner outsources its computer screencasts to some company, which prefers Macs.
