On-screen code from the flicks, with its prop purpose compared to what the program actually does. Above, Julian Assange changes the world in The Fifth Estate by reading the source code of a disk usage utility. [via Waxy]
I know it's not like a big deal or anything, but I have a question: has a movie or TV show ever sweated this detail? How many examples are there of a screen moment showing code that was fit for the intended purpose, even if it's just superficial pseudo movie-code or somesuch? PASSWORD OVERRIDE and Trinity using NMAP are mere Ceasars to the cinematic code-Augustuses you will inform us of.
