In the new comic-to-screen flick Ghost World, several Macs are featured rather prominently and humourously in some cases.
-The summer school art course that Enid takes uses some older "legacy" PowerMacs (sorry, not too familiar with that lineage), as well as a Blueberry slot-loader iMac.
-The coffee shop that Enid's friend works in acts as a sort of home to a twisted and lazy old man in a wheelchair who scores a free coffee every day by answering trivia questions using his cheat-sheet: a Powerbook G3 (with what looked like a new-style side-up logo, I couldn't really see as I was darting back in from the washroom at the time)
Overall, it's not a bad movie, and while it's well made, it didn't exactly turn my crank in all the right or familiar places. It's very well written though, and friends tell me that it's a rather worthy adaptation of the comic book on which it's based. Steve Buscemi is good, and Thora Birch does a pretty nice job as well.
I'd recommend it, but don't expect TOO too much if you aren't a big fan of the comic.
