Why Are Hollywood Movies Always Picking on the Internet?

During a short span of time in the summer and early fall, I noticed that I was watching a handful of films in which the bad guy was always the Internet, be it in the form of social media or YouTube. So I started wondering why. For The Dissolve, I look at Men, Women & Children (pictured above), Chef and Birdman to compare/contrast their portrayals of the World Wide Web -- and why their attitudes toward the Internet say more about Hollywood than it does Twitter. I hope you enjoy.
