CNET published a list of ten tech tricks we're sick of seeing in movies. Here's one of them:
1. Copy the hacked data before you are found out scene
You've seen this scene more times than you've seen your weird uncle who stops by every other Thanksgiving. You know the one I'm talking about. The movie cliche, not the uncle. Some character is trying to copy information onto a disk inside an enemy lair (yawn).
"Mission: Impossible" has this scene. "Jumpin' Jack Flash" has this scene. Almost every movie made in the second half of the 20th century has this scene. Memo to Hollywood: this scene isn't interesting anymore. It's tired, just like my Uncle Pauly.
