Johnny Mnemonic

Corrected entry: At the beginning of the movie Johnny goes to his meeting to get the 320Gb stored in his brain. Those 320Gb are stored in a disk the size of a mini-CD. So this has to be a new type of disk with about 100 times more the capacity of a recordable DVD. However at the end of the movie J-Bone goes live and tells the world to get their VCRs ready because the got the cure for the NAS. If there were such a disk with the capability of storing 320Gb why do they still use VCRs? Shouldn't there be some kind of DVD-Recorder using those disks?

Correction: Even people today still use the phrase "get your VCRs ready" to indicate that something worth noticing is about to happen. It is a popular cultural phrase.
