Video games/arcades in movies/TV

Postby Tron » May 9th, 2015, 1:45 am

Just watched {Brother From Another Planet 1984}. Movie was awful, but it had a few scenes with Arcade machines in it. That makes it worth seeing on fast forward just to see those scenes. I can't help but feel bad knowing that all those arcade games are probably in landfills or some dudes basement.

I loved the arcades in Karate Kid, Termenator 2 and of course Tron. Wish I could go back in time & visit them.

I thought that was a pretty good film.

For me the most memorable arcade scene in a film was in Death Wish 4, where Charles Bronson mows down tons of bad guys in an arcade, that was pretty neat.

There is also a great scene in Robocop 2 where the corrupt officer gets smashed around an arcade by our favourite cyborg.
