Super Technology of Superman III
Onscreen in this rather badly-done film is a lot of cutting edge tech from 1983: it's now an unfamiliar assortment of images of giant boxes and reel-to-reel tape that has only a distant relationship with today's shiny PDAs and desktop/flatscreen tormenters, that is if you're younger than say 40 or so. Christopher Reeve and Richard Pryor are the center-pieces of the film, but here I have screen-grabbed a handful of the shots of the computer technology which was meant to impress the audiences of that era. Consider: all that mammoth equipment is now eclipsed by the power of a single little laptop.
