To say the 1995 movie The Net is a classic would be… an overstatement. The Irwin Winkler film starring Sandra Bullock, Jeremy Northam and Dennis Miller didn’t have the best reception when it came out, and over time it’s gotten a reputation as a very schlocky paranoid thriller (in reality, it’s probably become more realistic as the net’s reach has expanded).
Today, the movie’s technology is one of its most unique aspects — early web interfaces and fantastic webpages abound. We found every screenshot — webpage or otherwise — and captured it for fans of The Net around the world.
The screens are below, but first, some of the most important trivia about The Net (for a more technical overview, check out this security-minded post).
- Angela orders a large 20″ pizza from Pizza.net with regular crust, anchovies, garlic, and extra cheese.
- In the beginning of the movie, she plays an early Apple version of Wolfenstein 3D.
- She books her economy class plane tickets from “link.ias.com.”
- Though Angela uses the net extensively, she and her employer correspond through Fed-Exed floppy disks.
- The band whose website is a backdoor to the entire Internet is called Mozart’s Ghost.
- Angela lives at 407 Finley Street, Venice, CA. Her phone number? 310-853-3472. The real house is located here.
- Angela works at 2102 Montgomery St., San Franciso, CA (which, unfortunately, isn’t a real address).
