    So computers used to be cool? Weird.

    (two 80s software designers)
    Guy 1: what should we put in this UI to make it easy to use?
    Guy 2: how about a big-ass override security button
    Guy 1: GENIUS

    Wow, what a flashback! Back when I got my first modem, a 300 Baud, (yeah..) but then I upgraded to what was then bad ass. A full 2400 Baud, which would equal 240 cps (characters per second) if you took off the start and stop bit. To think of where were at now! And the funny thing is friends of mine can go further back. Great compilation of some of the hardware used though.

    THEY NEARLY STARTED WW3. IT'S NOT A GAME.

    3:46 that arcade game with the green spy is a real game. I played it and finished it. The spy, Mr. X is actually a pretty cool spy despite being super cliche and doesn't have a personality.

    Dude, that's uncle rico from napoleon dynamite!

    The worst part about hacking in film are the sound effects when text is entered or keys are pressed (tracking devices beep and blink too LOL). War Games had a great sound though, a very creepy sound as the text appeared on the screen because it was sorta the voice of the machine. I think Blade Runner did the computer stuff best, after all these years the voight kampff machine still looks futuristic. Nowadays they get cheap and lazy and just throw up a holographic type image in the air and people wave their hands around like they're playing a fucking xbox game. It looks really stupid. Archer uses those Lisa 2 type computers (somewhat) which is really neat.

    Two realistic movies:
    1) Wargames
    2) Matrix
    One tv series:
    1) Mr Robot.
    One mention of honor:
    1) Jurassic Park (really)

    Where's R2D2 hacking Cloud city?

  16. Random Guy From Texas September 26, 2017 at 6:41 pm

    Not much has changed. Today it's even worse…

  17. 97channel September 26, 2017 at 6:41 pm

    The fast track method to become an 80's computer hacker. You'll need…
    1) – A can of Pepsi
    2) – A poster of Michelle Pfeiffer on the wall
    3) – A pair of Walkman headphones around your neck
    4) – A nervous friend looking over your right shoulder
    5) – A desk lamp
    …Now type the words "Access database". Wait for the response "Access denied", and simply reply with "Override". Congratulations, the world is now your oyster.

    I laughed my arse off at these. OH MY GOD WHAT WAS THAT THING AT 01:13 HAHAHAHAHA

  19. TackyRackyComixNEO September 26, 2017 at 6:41 pm

    The best thing is, most of the effects used to make these scenes had to be created by people who would have, in theory, known enough about computers to know that this is nothing at all like it actually plays out.

  20. jemimus September 26, 2017 at 6:41 pm

    What, no Jumpin' Jack Flash? (1986)

  21. Peter Moody September 26, 2017 at 6:41 pm

    What movie/show is the first 13 seconds from?

  22. PyroTyger September 26, 2017 at 6:41 pm

    If you're not going to credit Com Truise's music in the video, at least put it in the description. Come on, guys.

  23. Adrian Luca September 26, 2017 at 6:41 pm

    The Voight-Kampff test from Blade Runner just didn't belong in this.

  24. Jason King September 26, 2017 at 6:41 pm

    Asshole, where is the list of movies included in this video…

  25. Terror Vizion September 26, 2017 at 6:41 pm

    wich movie is at around  4:22 where the tv explodes and the girls say "wow,excellent"?

  26. Jacob Swanson September 26, 2017 at 6:41 pm

    (3:30) Ok, I doubt destroying a satellite would do THAT.

    Hollywood is no more accurate when it comes to computer technology today.

    What is the song that plays on the intro? at like 15 seconds in…. it reminds me of com truise.

  30. YES10 September 26, 2017 at 6:41 pm

    scifi in those old movies, reality in 2015

    And sometimes two hacker share the same keyboard at the same time…

    "override all security"

  33. Clémentin September 26, 2017 at 6:41 pm

    You really think the hacking scenes have changed nowadays ? In 2014 films, screens continue to show the letters 1 by 1 like on a teletype, and even when nobody use the PC they keep showing scrolling lines of random data. In 2014 films, hackers continue to ignore what a mouse is, and they have mysterious interfaces which are nor Windows, nor Mac, nor Linux (and, of course, no menu and no button in their softwares).

  34. Darren Z September 26, 2017 at 6:41 pm

    This isn't true of just 80's movies.  Every movie that has ever depicted "hacking" is ridiculous.

  35. JohnnyBNerdy September 26, 2017 at 6:41 pm

    No scenes from "Sneakers"? C'mon, man!

  36. Xaotik Designs September 26, 2017 at 6:41 pm

    The Voight-Kamp test from Blade Runner wasn't hacking

  37. bradleypariah September 26, 2017 at 6:41 pm

    When I was little, I got my first Tandy-TDK computer. It spoke basic and played cartridge video games. I told people I was going to be able to turn on and off my light switches with it. Now I have two gaming PCs, I've studied for the LPIC,  and I still haven't figured out how to do that with code alone.

    Fucking awesome.  The 80s era of computers was so terrific.  Computers were still this wildly uncharted territory, being a programmer meant you could be a god and do anything.  It's like being a wizard in Middle Earth.  I love this.

  39. Hesusio September 26, 2017 at 6:41 pm

    Still more authentic than CSI.

  40. Blind Man September 26, 2017 at 6:41 pm

    We surely didn't have a clue what we were doing back then, fun times! What I would give to return back to the 80s.

  41. Yuri Ivanov September 26, 2017 at 6:41 pm

    I wonder if, in 30 years time, there's going to be a video called "2010s Computer Hacking: A Supercut"

  42. realar September 26, 2017 at 6:41 pm

    Oh, TRON, how I love you. When you understood the point of computers and not creating a world with glitches that somehow possess humanoid DNA that can pass between the computer world and the real world with next to no modifications.
