Examining both science fiction and realistic dramas, Tucker closely engages with films like The Net, Hackers, and The Matrix trilogy alongside more recent works like Tron: Legacy, The Social Network, The Amazing Spiderman, and Avatar.

In combination with film theory and close textual analysis, he balances a historical understanding of the development of the Internet with an explanation of how the technology works in order to explore the ways in which this technology, both as a new medium and as represented in popular film, has shaped contemporary versions of self-identity, memory, and the human body.
