The early arcade video game, Computer Space, has a brief cameo in the utterly bleak and depressing Soylent Green. The early 70s had a bunch of these pessimistic films, like A Clockwork Orange. Vietnam really bummed out Hollywood.

Ah yes. I think that Computer Space cabinet became a stock prop, popping up in the backgrounds of several 70's movies. Jaws comes to mind. It does look futuristic. Is that the Rifleman at the end of the clip?

Early (the first?) Nintendo Famicom commercial. Note the square controller buttons:

That's right. They would've had to invent a switch box too. Never even thought about it.

Pac-Man VR

Virtuality could probably have their own topic. Till then, here's a video of one of their games.

KiddieMatinee.com used to have a good review of this film, but they're gone. I'd show you StompTokyo's review, but it's not coming up either. *Sigh*

Merry Christmas One and All.

Cheap, short feature starring Rin Tin Tin Jr, who's both the best actor and the smartest character. The bad guys make Marv and Harry look like geniuses.
