It's funny how the depiction of computers in movies has grown less glamorous as time goes on. I guess sort of how everyone in the 60s thought we'd be colonizing Jupiter by now.
80s: computers are gateways into alternate worlds, are sentient beings, and can create life.
90s: no longer magical Narnia portals (except virtual reality), but they control EVERYTHING! Hack the computers, control the world. Hacking via outlandish virtual reality graphics.
00s & beyond: tools to be hacked for mere real world info. Hacking is done via a lame 2D GUI now.
