As an old mainframe IT guy, I always cringe when I’m watching a movie or TV show and I hear the word “mainframe.” Invariably it is used in the wrong context or shows a screen that is definitely not a mainframe screen.

So when I came across this YouTube video of “mainframe” references in movies I just had to share it here.

I'm a data management strategist, researcher, and consultant with over three decades of experience in all facets of database systems development and implementation.
