jaunch I think what's most impressive isn't the virus' full-video interface or the gibson's 3D virtual reality file explorer that works through a 28.8 baud modem. It's the fact that the bad guys don't need labels on all their single-function keys.
Old_Zircon I love that the VR file explorer is mostly practical effects and miniatures rather than CGI.
So much of it is obviously etched plexiglass with edge lighting and basic CGI text overlays.
Old_Zircon Forgot the stars. This movie always earns them.
Old_Zircon Less so in this scene actually, but starting at 1:12 specifically, that's a bunch of plexiglass.
StanleyPain These guys were amateurs. Didn't even make a GUI interface through the SCSI port using C++.
Nominal The 2 X-Files episodes written by Gibson were even sillier than this.
