Does anyone in here can tell me if there's more movies besides these
two? What about 7800 or Jag?

ET brief a 2600
Cloak&Dagger 5200

Thanks,
Mike

7800 and Jag weren't pop culture enough to get movies. You'll notice "The
Wizard" was the next videogame-centric movie to appear after those two, and
that featured the NES which had become pop culture's video game console at
the time.

Are you asking for movies in which an Atari console appeared? Offhand,
I can think of an Italian film called "Shark rosso nell'oceano"
(retitled "Devilfish" in the U.S.). There's a scene in it where a woman
is playing Seaquest on a 2600. I only know about it because it was
fodder for an MST3K episode. :)

There's a scene in "Revenge of the Nerds" where the youngest nerd is
playing what looks to be SpaceMaster X-7. I don't think the console is
visible though.

Not mentioned on site and some useless trivia....

One Dark Night... creepy little gem (still waiting for DVD release) has a
scene that will make up jump with Tempest (too bad they don't have arcades
like that anymore) the arcade also showed Hercules pinball I believe which
was Atari.

Didn't the remake of The Thing have an Atari 2600 by the pinball machine?

There was another movie that had something to do with a guy putting a
virtual reality thing on his head (I believe he was blind) and was playing
Super Breakout on Atari.. I forgot the name of the movie been long time.

One of the members of Marilyn Manson collects retro console systems.

I have seen movies/sit coms that use Atari 2600 sound effects when someone
is playing a game. (movies ALWAYS get the pinball sounds wrong... it will be
a solidstate machine with pre solidstate sounds... cheesy)

Also whats up with Happy Days with Nip It pinball machine... Happy Days was
supposed to be 50's that game didn't come out till late 60's early 70's?
Thats like hugely noticable and can't believe they could be that clueless on
the show!
