* Spoofed in ''Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000'' episode ''TimeChasers'': Near the end of the film, the protagonist is climbing down a tree to get away from a crashed light aircraft that's threatening to fall on him[[note]]Very reminiscent of ''Franchise/JurassicPark'', which is indeed [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]][[/note]].

* ''Series/BattlestarGalacticaReimagined'' has this as an explicit ongoing theme, with humans relying on chunky old-fashioned machines with a lot of manual controls. The Cylons, by contrast, are robots with incredibly sexy starships.
