BEWBS!

I've never been a fan of this movie but I do understand it's legacy. 
 
I however disagree that this holds up better then Tron as I dont think either hold up (while maintaining I personally would watch either one today but only because I lived through this era, anyone watching this now for the first time would probably find it silly).  
 
On a side note Roger Ebert loved both this and Tron although seemed to like Tron more as he considered it an overlooked film. As far as gross, this film was much more profitable. 
 
Also, I'm going to mention on every episode how I hope you do one of these for Cloak and Dagger. If you do this show without ever doing that movie I will be sad faced. Speaking of which, am I the only one who notices that  Dabney Coleman was in alot of gamer movies? Well anyway, I saw a bunch with him in them back then.  
Oh, and the legendary William Forsythe playing a computer/gaming nerd who runs a game store (in Cloak and Dagger)! Come on, doesnt get any better then that =P 
 
Oh well, anyway, I'll shut up now.

War Games was an excellent movie back in the day and still holds up pretty well today too. It still stands out as a classic in my eyes.

@Olivaw:

Agreed, Last JDB movie I recall seeing was the MST3k version of Mitchell where Joe Don Baker is sometimes called Mittens. Egads that movie still hurts my brain even now. Ryan might need more stuff from the bar in order to make it through that one for next week.

Does Joe Don Baker peel an orange in this one? He does in both his MST3K episodes...

The war games would end if you just gave him a tasty Whopper.

Posted by JackSukeru

I remember seeing this film a few years ago and liking it. I don't remember a lot of it, but I do remember the ending which I thought was pretty nice.

Posted by ProfessorZombie

I love this show.

We need it now!!!

Somehow I always hated WarGames....maybe it's just becuase I really dislike Broderick..maybe it's because of something else (like the dumb story - seriously)... the only thing I do like is the conclusion - that's really a classic.... 
 
WUTANG forever.

That girl is so fine at the end in a classical sorta way.  Annoying as shit though.

Posted by zeefoes

Ha just watched this movie .. pretty good. I have the sudden urge to play defcon now.

Posted by MetalGearFlaccid

Boooooobs.

Posted by zoozilla

The good old days, when Matthew Broderick being in a movie didn't mean that movie was doomed to fail...

I still love Wargames enjoyable review as always their Ryan So I take it Joysticks is the next movie you guys are gonna review?

Posted by fedorajay
@infestedandy: Not many people liked  eXinstenZ but if you forget that it was a full fledged theatrical release and view it as a longer episode of the newer The Outer Limits, it really is pretty cool. That gun, though. Everyone remembers that gun.
Posted by Sparky_Buzzsaw

It's a great movie.  The leads really help sell the dramatic tension, as does that ending sequence.  Nice review.

Great video. Sucks that John Spencer is no longer with us. He was great on West Wing.

Posted by SuperfluousMoniker

I'm a little surprised Ryan didn't make note of the whole "The only way to win the game is not to play" dichotomy of Tic Tac Toe, and competitive gaming as a whole.

Edited by Max_Hydrogen

Bit of a stingy review. Every night I pray to the Whiskey Media Gods that Ryan replace Mathew Rory and make screened.com worth my time.

I love that the whole plot of WarGames is that the WOPR is programmed to play chess, checkers, poker, oh and Global Thermonuclear War.

Posted by SBYM

<3 Wargames.

I just realized this abbreviates to WU-TANG

Posted by MachoFantastico

Lost count of how many times I've watched WarGames. Wonderful movie that still holds up today. 

Posted by CHIEFMEGADETH666

I liked Tron way more,but it was good...

Posted by cooljammer00

Kind of short for the amount of goodness we have this week. 
 
Also, what was that teaser for.

I still enjoy you're thoughtful script writing in this new video feature.  Wargames still plays!  WUTANG is great!  Make more videos!

Posted by Kraznor

I have fond memories of Wargames, should probably watch it again sometime soon.

Hope to see an episode of the movie "Stay Alive" from 2006
