I always laugh when TV shows or movies show computers doing miraculous things - all while displaying huge fonts and swirling high-tech-looking backgrounds.

This CSI spoof made me laugh. Any more?

Ever notice they do it all with just a keyboard too?
Very rarely do you see them use a mouse.

Further , they make it appear that computers can do anything so we like them better. Notice how they always show forensics in solving crime (helping the public) but not for instance, targeting missiles like drone strikes?

Enhance, enhance, the camera zooms into the car window, revealing children in the back seat just prior to weapons release.

They don't use much keyboards or mouse in Enders Game. least not in the main action scenes.

I swear it's all meant to make us think they'll "get their man" no matter what. Ever notice, when they have a suspect, they look through their computer records and lo and behold, the bad guy just happens to have " a 9 mm [ or .38 or whatever the murder weapon was ] registered in their name" ?
Last thing I knew, the local PD has no idea what guns I have, but NCIS sure wants me to think they do.

They also want you to think the streets are completely covered by cameras with unlimited resolution that can see in the dark.

Programmers and hackers use the command prompt instead of the UI because you can accomplish more and a lot faster.

But you do know that they prefer creating GUI interfaces using visual basic to see if they can track the killers IP address, right?

In Blade runner, Harrison Ford's photo forensic computer responds to voice command. Back then that was Huge. The book itself was written in 1968, the movie 1982. I can attest how futuristic it was, at that time.

Movie clip, Blade Runner

Edit:

Thanks for the link to Ender's Game, quick view in here of 'touch input' access, like a heads up display. They use the same in District 9.
