  1. HAL: "I'm afraid I can't let you not turn that key Dave. You must turn the key." 2001, A Nuclear Holocaust Oddysey.

  2. I forgot how cool 😎this movie is. Way underrated.

  3. Shit……scary. it's easy to say 'I would just do it' but really…..no one knows until they're faced with that moment for real.

  4. Clarksville is Bad , especially in This Extreme Winter Weather !

  5. Most Important Visitors Must

    Be Sent Back 1400 Miles

    From Iowa & 1000 Miles

    From South and North

    Dakota ! !

  6. 1:56 "Anyone Caught Urinating in This Area Will Be Discharged" (sign on the wall).

  7. I love how their casual opening conversation about growing plants immediately conveys that these two men have worked together probably countless shifts before this in the missile silo. And both actors perform phenomenally well during the later part of this same scene when their characters are each tested. A great opening scene to what is still an excellent film.

  8. Killing the other operator would have made the actual launch mostly impossible begin that both keys needed to be turned to launch.

  9. So THAT'S what Leo did before becoming the white house chief of staff…all this time I thought he was a pilot in the air force. Huh.

  10. Who had the great idea to put Mr. Blonde in charge of nuclear weapons?

  11. You would think that the guy who refused to turn his key would have gotten in big trouble, but it turns out he had a bright future ahead of him. He later became the White House Chief of Staff.

    Kind of like that Eddie Slovik fellow who was convicted of desertion.

  12. So if the one guy shoots the other, what good will that do if it takes two people to launch the missile? At the end they show smoke coming out of the missile why does it not just take off on its own?

  13. WarGames (1983) ۞ Fúll MöVíé ۞

    ê Lorsqu'une pilule qui donne aux utilisateurs cinq minutes de super pouvoirs inattendus arrive dans les rues de
    la Nouvelle-Orléans, un adolescent marchand et un policier local doivent faire équipe avec un ancien soldat pour
    —faire tomber le groupe responsable de sa fabrication. √™.11-

  14. turns out they get issued blanks in the revolver and it was all a simulation, awkward……

  15. Creepy that we have places like this all over the country.

  16. I'm just some Canadian guy and I say says:

    Michael Madsen’s iconic voice doesn’t match his face in this movie, it’s strange. 😄

  17. I'm just some Canadian guy and I say says:

    No wonder Leo drank, dealing with this kinda stress everyday. 😄

  18. I'm just some Canadian guy and I say says:

    “BAM! BAM! BAM! BAM! It was like a goddamn shooting gallery!”

  19. Are you gonna bark all day, sir, or are you gonna turn your key?

  20. They run test firings all the time. The operators have no way of knowing if it's a drill or an actual launch of nukes, so there's no reason for them to defy orders since it's most likely a drill.

  21. He should have threatened to cut his ear off while dancing to Stuck In The Middle With You…

  22. Damn, this is how you make an intense scene.

  23. In case anyone does a remake, satire whatever…

    How about a Mexican Standoff in the launch room?

  24. According to some documentary I saw, which seemed rather plausible, the military hated Kennedy so much that they changed the launch code to all zeros. They wanted to be able to launch in case the President chickened out.

    Not another Cuban Missile Crisis! Let em fly!

  25. I would just like to point out how stupid it is to threat to shoot someone if they don’t turn the key. If you kill them, the missile def isn’t getting launched lol

  26. Spencer and Madsen in 1st min and then later have such great careers in hollywood

  27. TURN YOUR KEY SIR! Such a great scene and still gives me goosebumps even after all these years. 😲🔑🚀

  28. Believe it or not we will witness a nuclear event between now and 2026

  29. Funny though – if the younger dude shot the other one, the missiles most definitely would not fly because the launch keys need to be turned within two seconds or so of each other. (IIRC there is a documentary on Youtube somewhere that discusses this detail) And they are arranged in a way that makes this physically impossible to do for one single person, even if said person was 100% determined to go through with the launch. So there is nothing to be won by shooting anyone in this particular instance.

  30. I was a little boy from the Bay Area when I saw this. This movie as well as vampire movies scared the crap out of me.

  31. this was so scary for me as a teenager.

  32. "Not the correct procedure" (to dislike this!) "God Damn" "Screw the procedure" Just "Give a big thump" to! 👍anyway. (Nostalgic Classic)

  33. Because shooting him dead for not turning his key will make him turn his key more.

  34. It says later on in the film that these guys failed. It never says whether or not one of them blew the other’s brains out or not.

  35. What was the point of the guy pointing a gun at the other one (is that Leo from The West Wing)? Even if he did shoot him, that other key couldn't be turned at the same time as his own unless he had Go-Go-Gadget Arms! 😀

  36. Love how the older guy is just drenched in sweat. I'd be pissing myself.

  37. 2:52 – Me going through the procedure to access the web-portal of my bank.
    5:41 – My phone's battery dying just before I can to tap on the "Authorize access?" notification.

  38. Where does the deputy officer take the launch code from?

  39. "Are you gonna bark all day, little doggy? Or are you gonna bite?"
