- Movies that involve chat

Current mood:




Original post on
360(that’s why it’s orange)

We are trying to
think of movies that have 'chat ' in them, either the characters use chat to
interact or meet or they use the internet in some way to interact we can
think of
The Net(
Her driver's license. her credit cards. her bank accounts. her identity.
DELETED Sandra Bullock- 1998),

Strange Lands/Capt. Howdy,
Electric Dreams
(An artificially intelligent PC and his human owner find themselves in a
romantic rivalry over a woman made 1984) and

You Have Mail
(Tom Hanks, Meg Ryan - 1998), Warriors of the Net- 1999)

Can anyone think of

Well, this is

amazing; you guys came up with so many its marvelous what you can do with so
many heads puts together. The thing that got me was that most
of these I have seen but it just didn’t click that they used chat to
communicate .I had to be reminded

Now I remember LoL

Quite interesting
because even Mr. Photographic memory could only think of three (The Net,
Strangelands and Electric Dreams) I had to ask in the video shop what the
Meg Ryan Tom Hanks movie was (You have Mail)

One that we (Dandy
and myself) haven’t been able to remember the name of is
the one shown on Austar (pay TV) one of the “Hallmark” movies .The main
character is a mother who helps the police catch Pedophile’s online using
chat. It isn’t, Not without my Daughter with Sally Field, but the name is

Oh and if you want
to go TV series,
SouthPark– MAMDA episode, and Star Trek

Obviously the more
recent movies the chances of them using a computer to communicate is far
greater, wasn’t much you could do in the 80’s on 35meg of ram with a 286.

Even though he did

actually talk to Hal in 2001 a space Oddesy he wasn’t talking to another
person via the computer he was talking to the computer it’s self

Aliens!! I just had
a thought, don’t they use video links to talk to each other and talk to
people back home, same as they do on Star Trek

his friends back home. I swear!)
