Wanted Trailer 3 + Latest Google Cliche

It seems to be the latest movie and TV cliche to have characters demonstrate for us how much they don’t matter by googling themselves and finding nothing. Now while that’s a nice bit of digi existentialist crisis and all, it’s also silly. I remember back when movies routinely got the internet and computers wrong, there was at least an excuse, because the only people making movies and familiar with computers were on the technical or business end of things. That’s no longer the case and at some point in the production of a movie made in 2008, it should have been easy enough for someone to step forward and say that Google searches for common names will always come up with results, unless you get specific and use quotation marks.
