I would like to add two other examples, first is Sly Stallones film
"Demolition Man" for it's depiction of Cryonics as something very
likely to occur in the near future, as well as technologically

The second is one I've never seen mentioned in these discussions
before, the "garage-tech" cryonic suspension in an episode of
"Miami-Vice". Briefly, Crockett and Tubs break into an office where
they expect to find a drug lab, and instead find a garage-tech
cryonics lab containing a hollywood class dewar (complete with
viewing window) containing a missing regae star "Romilard Nevin".

They are told that Nevin died as the result of fugu poisioning
during his tour in Japan (Nihon) and has been in suspension ever
since. The interesting part comes as they reveal they have
discovered the cure for pufferfish toxin and are preparing to
revive Nevin. When asked if this is possible, the assistant says
"of course" and holds up a large three ring binder, "it's all right

The rest is really to good to miss, so I won't spoil it.
