Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home (1986)

The computer that Scotty uses to show transparent aluminum was originally going to be an Amiga, but Commodore would only provide a computer if they bought it. Apple was willing to loan them the Mac.

I have already read most of these and the ones you posted above... it's not what this thread is about... it is about movies/tv shows etc where amigas can be spotted... it's not about what movies/tv shows etc where amiga were used for graphics... please clean this thread up by removing all text you posted that is not about amiga spottings.

Thanks.

Im not sure if its been mentioned yet, but in a kids gameshow here in Australia called "Now You See It" back in the early 90's, they used to have an Amiga 500 as the major prize for a school to win. It was the major prize for over a year i think and everyday it was mentioned on this show.

The Rachel Papers. 1989


Dexter Fletcher's character uses an A500 with an A590 to write and store information on the number of sexual encounters he's had and data on the women.

I'll try and get a picture.

Presumably you don't mean you'll get a picture of the sexual encounters he's had with women...?

I suppose I could try and screen gra...no...forget I even suggested it.

It's a class film as it goes and I highly recommend it.
Shame it didn't do that well.

Wow!

Screw you ALF and your god damned mainframe shite!

So this guy's supposed to be a manifestation of extraterrestrial intelligence and he doesn't use an Amiga, particularly in the late 80's - GO BACK TO YOUR PLANET YOUR SON OF A BITCH!

I remember in one of the Lethal Weapon movies, there was a computer with the Three Stooges on it. That pie fight sequence if I remember correctly.. was that game released for many other computers as well?

There's a really awesome new TV show going to come out soon that will feature an Amiga in every episode. I know because I'm going to make this show! But it'll probably be just a bunch of my mates trying to act, broadcast over YouTube or something.

Also, I forget which season, but one of the Red Dwarf DVD menus has an Amiga keyboard in it. And these menus were all digitally re-created specially for the DVDs, so whoever made the 3D models went to the trouble of using an Amiga keyboard in there instead of a PC keyboard.
