I can actually picture myself watching a porno and going "Whoa, that's a Mega STe!!" *pause/rewind/replay* :lol: Not sure whether that means the film failed in its duties, or we're just a bunch of geeks.

In "The last Starfighter" a teenager used a Atari video game with a futuristic logo beside that looked very similar to the Atari logo. In "Moon 44" there are thanks to Atari Corp. that can be read after the film ends.

Was long time ago when I watched that film, but wasn't him playing on an arcade machine? I don't remember that he was playing on a computer at all.

Maybe I'm thinking of something else, but wasn't the "thumbprint" door-opener in
Back to the Future 2 (where jennifer is trapped in thier future home) supposed to be by Atari?

Roger plays an Atari Night Driver arcade machine in 'Dawn of the Dead'

attempts to eat the family car.
