The Rachael Papers, and I think he was using Memacs for typing.

Robocop 2, all the visual displays in the drugs laboratory trailer and the graphics used to animate Cain on the screen on the front of Robocop 2 were Amiga/Toaster.

All pre-production for Jurassic Park was done on Amiga/Toaster.

First two series of Babylon 5 were Amiga/Toaster.

USS Defiant design and implementation were done on Amiga/Toaster by Digital Domain and then transferred into ILM's systems.

A lot of movies have either used the Amiga/Toaster combo for creating onscreen graphics, or for pre-production work (i.e. to get something quickly onscreen so animators and actors know how to interact, and then they use SGI to finish off).

Lots and lots of TV and Cable companies still use Amiga/Toaster, as to the RAF.

A Pop show called The Chart Show used to use Amiga and a Genlock to overlay text and boxes.

Some Aussie film called Floor 13 or something similar had lots of Amiga's on screen.

Plenty of softcore porn films generally have an Amiga somewhere in the background.

As far as the Amiga/Toaster combination goes, the only reason it worked so well on the Amiga, is because the Amiga was perfectly syncronised for video input/output. If you've seen many news and tv documentaries, sometimes you will see a PC / MAc display in the background and they are flickering all over the place, but if you see an Amiga, it will never be seen flickering.
