Movies have never been that good at accurately representing interfacing with computers, especially in the early days. But it's still a riot to watch what people thought it looked like.

Founditemclothing put together a montage of some of the cheesiest hacking and computer moments in 1980s cinema. Of course, a bunch of them involve Matthew Broderick, but all of them are stilted and silly in their attempt to make something so boring looking visually compelling. Who can blame them?
