It was great to see Wargames again! We haven't seen it since it appeared in the Theaters in 1983. My 10 year old son saw it for the first time and loved it. He loves computer games and got a real kick out of seeing what computers looked like 20 years ago. My son is asking for a DVD of the movie. My boyfriend is a "computer geek", as he calls himself, and he got a kick out of seeing how far technology has come.

Worst Screening I have ever been to!!!

I love War Games, one of the top Hacker films ever!!! However, the screening at the gateway theater was the worst experience ever. The image was beyond dim, you could barely see it. The house lights came on twice, the florescent lights came on once. The right channel of the audio went in and out. 3/4th's of the way through the movie "crashed" and there was a windows error on the theaters screen. We did all crack up when that happened. But to pay 11 bucks to go see a movie that is available on DVD and have it be a worse viewing experience then watching it at home is disappointing. I was surprised how the crowd weathered the movie (myself included). I think we all just kept thinking it would get better... Oh well...

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

Great to see this movie on the big screen again. A little technical difficulty and had a 1/2 hour of no movie, but that was no big deal really. Took my 9 year old son to see it. First time he had ever seen the movie. He loved it. I really liked the never before seen interviews at the start and the sneak peek at the sequel. I love these one night events. Keep them coming, especially the 80's movies!
