Top 10 Apple movie moments
Love it or hate it Macs have made some great scenes in Hollywood movies. Maclife.com has made an interesting compilation for some remarkable scenes where the involvement of a Mac has been crucial to the plot or just to make our hearts sink. Here are just 3 of the best.
3. Final Destination 2: This however is one of those ‘Oh! my God!’ moments in cinema when we realize how stupidly unlucky the character is. Right after purchasing a brand new Apple computer, lottery winner Evan Lewis sets off a fiery chain reaction by accidentally microwaving a refrigerator magnet with his leftover Chinese food. The scene ends with a fire-escape ladder impaling him through the right eye, but the real tragedy here is the unopened iMac G4 that burns in the fire.
2. Forrest Gump: One of the funniest lines of the movie “Lieutenant Dan got me invested in some kind of fruit company. So then I got a call from him, saying we don’t have to worry about money no more.” This is one of those oh my God moments in cinema when we realize how stupidly lucky the character is.
1. American Pie: Well not one of the most famous but raunchy scenes when Jim, Kevin and Paul spy on Nadia while she changes clothes after ballet practice, they are watching live video using NetBot, a fictional Classic app running on a very real Power Mac and what appears to be OS 8.5. NetBot? That wouldn’t be a Bot hacker would it?
