An Old Favorite For Many
This was an old favorite for many younger baby-boomers, who were teenagers and in their twenties at the dawn of the personal computer age.
This one was a bit more than amusing, though. It opened many eyes to both the potential and the dangers we faced while coming into the computer age. The government had these marvelous machines and the internet by which they communicated for decades before the public was given access from these ancient Commodore 64’s, Amigas, and Atari home computers via phone line, back in the late 1970’s.
While this work is entertaining, it also bears a valid warning, even today.
Broderick and Ally Sheedy both were 21, playing 17 year olds, competently.
It rates a 7.6/10 from…

How about a nice game of Chess?
“War Games” is for the eighties, what “Colossis: The Forbin Project” was for the seventies, and “Fail Safe” in the sixties. A glitch in a computer security system allows a brilliant but erratic high school student to accidentally cause the military’s war computer to begin a game which the military sees as real. Because of human errors in previous game scenarios, the human element was removed from the system and the computer given complete control. The mistakes begin to compound from there as the FBI decide that 16 year old David Lightman is a soviet agent. Meanwhile the command at NORAD is preparing for an inbound soviet missile attack that could come at any moment.
Matthew Broderickis excellent in an all star cast including Dabney Coleman, Ally Sheedy, Barry Corbin and John Woods with direction by John Badham. An excellent film all round.
