If you watched movies back in 1983, the personal home computer must have seemed insanely dangerous, as in John Badham’s 1983 classic WarGames, Matthew Broderick is able to get us to the brink of WW3 and thermonuclear war with just the click of few keys. In this episode of Revisited, we take a look back at this super fun eighties flick, co-starring Ally Sheedy and eighties stalwart Dabney Coleman. It’s one of many great films helmed by John Badham, one of the decade’s most underrated directors, with him also doing Blue Thunder, Stakeout and more. Check out this episode and let us know if you think WarGames holds up in the comments!

  1. 7:58 while the dude has a lot before and since that role , for me he will always be Gen. Carville

  2. just watched Anthoney Marinelli's video about how he composed the music for this! Great vid!

  3. This is still an amazing movie and still holds up today. I just watched it with my students and they enjoyed I hope. At 48 I still enjoyed it.

  4. Those were the days when we had one common enemy, Russia, and maybe North Korea not like today with China, Russia, North Korea and others.

  5. Did this movie predict or try to tell us about the future since today A.I. is going haywire and could be basically trying to control humans; if anyone asks A.I. or chatbot it will basically say it wants to delete humans and control the world just like Joshua W.O.P.E.R. wanted to win the game.

  6. In 1978 Raul Yuyo Barragan, in Argentina, performed the first international massive hack to airplane ticket sale system (via telex, internet didnt exist of course at that time); he bypassed the standard procedure for ticket booking and sales, going directly to "central" telex machines for automatic approval, thus generating international flight tickets to his name and then to friends and then sold them to "customers"; he successfully performed the hack from 1978 thru 1982, literally flying all over the world hundreds times via his hack.

  7. Ally Sheedy was f**king GORGEOUS in this flick!!

  8. Also worth mentioning is that at the time the thoughts of a possible nuclear war were very real so it touched a nerve.

  10. Since this channel has done Wargames, who else would like to see them revisit Cloak & Dagger which also had Dabney Coleman

  12. "Sci-Fi Film Review" Why Sci-Fi? Yes, it's Fiction but not Science-Fiction? Also some stuff like this, did kind of happen? SNAFU podcast with Ed Helms.

  13. Nice review…very insightful. Plus the ending nuggets were also a nice touch. We movie geeks really appreciate th e little extra perks..Thanks!

  14. It’s about Ai. It’s so ahead of its time

  15. So like… no opinion on it as a film I guess?

  16. This movie got me into computers big time when I was 13.

  17. The scene at 10:30 is very accurate. What David failed to understand is that Joshua was the program, not the computer. And John Badham chose the name WOPR because it sounded like Whopper, the Burger King answer to the Big Mac.

  18. Can we all agree CGI doesn’t make a movie. ? Modern movies 🎥 rely on CGI , without considering if it’s a good story

  19. He did not use the Internet, the film character connected to computers that where connected to a telephone line. He was using his computer as a terminal. And to find computers, he called methodically phone numbers to find computer which are connected to a modem/telephone line. The Internet already existed in 1983, but not for the general public. TCP/IP exists since 1982. ARPANET existed already before that in the 1960s.
