Sometimes the only way to win is not to play

It's been at least 10 years since I last saw this movie, but I still remember the tension: would Joshua discover the futility of war before beginning a massive world-wide annihilation? I admit, it was a lot funnier this time around: the old cars, the computer disks so large they looked like square records, the character who smoked everywhere, even in the infirmary. But still relevant is the theme of the whole movie, that war does not solve our problems. In today's society we are still fighting to learn this lesson. Just look at the genocide in Darfur, the holy wars in the middle east, the gang wars in downtown Chicago. Our broken human nature seeks to destroy that which is potentially stronger than us, before it can destroy us. But with our technological advances, we can each launch atom bombs, and both be destroyed. We can each fire a gun and both get shot through the heart. War Games is still a lighthearted approach to this idea--but it is a timeless warning just the same.

War Games 25th Anniversary

Well, it was great to see this old classic on the big screen. The print they made the digital from seems to have been missing a few frames here and there, and the movie twitched a bit. The digital projector failed at one point and was down for 5 minutes mid film. The worst part was the local theater ran the first 5 minutes of the "exclusive interviews" with no sound...

The best part was when the computer crashed during the movie and we had to wait five minutes for the theater to get it going again!!!!! Poetic justice!!!!

I never got to see this movie on the big screen and am glad I had my chance. The acting is very genuine and the actors seem like regular people. This is before Hollywood became stylized and I think it is the reason the high concept of a kid nearly starting WWIII works. I highly reccommend it--if not for the story, just to get a laugh at all of the antiquated electronics.
