A Visual History of Movie Computers
If action movies are to be believed, computers have the ability to pull up pretty much every single piece of information in just a few seconds and even the most impenetrable of high-security networks can be compromised with just a few skillful key strokes.

You can pull up immigration records for anyone you want:
You can even plan how you’re going to trade one man’s face for another:
The possibilities are endless.
The pictures above are just a few examples of the dozens and dozens of various computer screen shots assembled on the blog Access Main Computer File. The site is self-described as “A visual study of computer GUI (Graphical User Interface) in cinema.” It provides a pretty entertaining look at how far computers have come – and where computers never really were.
