Alien Syndrome:
during this movie I saw what would have been an A500 on a desk in one of the lab rooms, and one embedded in the console of a particle accelerator, the KS 1.x Workbench screen with familiar blue background is also within view.

Miami Vice:
1. One episode in Miami Vice with a nutty ex-cop in it used Lorraine. Wasn't it the earlier Amiga-prototype or what?
2. Are you sure it was lorraine? Lorraine certainly does not look like a computer
3. It was called Lorraine in that episode. A pre-Amiga methinks. Doesn't look like a computer? Have a look here moran : http://www.floodgap.com/retrobits/ck.../lorraine.html
4. I remember in Miami Vice (season 1 or 2) that the bad guys stole police data from a computer at night, and there was Tubbs & Crockett watching an A1000 displaying just an empty standard blue CLI window, while the cops were telling that some 3,5" floppies from the box next to it were missing. 100% sure I saw this!

Hotshots:
In the late 80's a 6 part series called Hotshots was made in New Zealand. A group of teenage kids foiled the baddies by using radio controlled cars (Avante, Clod Buster etc) and helicopters fitted with cameras, and the baddies were using an Amiga 500 to counterfeit bank notes!

An American woman was kidnapped in the first episode because she was supposedly some expert, and she got the $20 note scanned in. An Amiga was present many times during the program. The end credits each episode also showed an Amiga with monitor in the background and they thanked CBM in the scroller.

Sledge Hammer:
In the season one final episode of "Sledge Hammer" (US TV comedy series in 1986/87, similar to "Police Squad") detective Dori Doreau uses an A1000 as a sketch artist to display and print out a picture of a girl in a bikini. (I've got it on DVD)

The Matrix:
I'm fairly certain that there's an A500 featured in The Matrix, when they free Neo from the Matrix after his meeting with Morpheus and it zooms in on Tank and the computer monitors, but I can't tell for sure.

The Last Seduction 2:
an A1000 is used to run the phone sex business operated by Troy Fenton. Bridget, the movie's main character, breaks into it to syphon off funds for her own use, the Amiga is clearly visible several times during the movie.
