A good movie

Basically, it is one of those movies I have been hearing about for years and I was definitely eager to finally check it out. Eventually, it turned out to be a really solid thriller and probably the most convincing movie dealing with hacking that I have seen so far.

Total Film's 29 Films That Predicted The Future (29 movies items)

"What it predicted: Hacking / cyber warfare Back in 1983 a fresh-faced Matthew Broderick took a break from bunking off of school to show us what the future of hacking and cyber warfare might look like. The film's slightly light on actual details but given that it was released years before the Internet even became a ‘thing’ we're willing to cut it some slack."

25 From 83: My Favorite Films Of 1983 (25 movies items)

"WarGames is about the kind of troubles a slacking loner can get into when hacking into the government's military online systems. Especially when a part of it is because he's just trying to impress a girl. A teenage Cold War thriller back when computers were all dial-up, all screens were black with green fonts, & backdoors were the best kept secrets that computer hacking nerds had in their on-line arsenal. Shall. We. Play. A. Game?"

"6.5. Mysteeriprojekti #3 - 1/8 Idea on taas sama kuin ensimmäisessä ja toisessa osassa projektia. Tällä kertaa vaihtareissa mukana Nebb. Koska leffoja on nyt niin vähän, ja koska katselutahti on luultavasti aika satunnaisen hidas, en jaksa tehdä projektista omaa listaansa. WarGamesissa nähdään aivan huikeaa kasarin elokuvahakkerointia. Teinipoika hakkeroi vahingossa USA:n puolustusjärjestelmän, ja sitten ollaankin ydinsodan partaalla Neuvostoliiton kanssa.

"Re-watch - Dec. 26th Were it not for the fact I have a few vague impressions left from the first time I watched this, I'd call this a first viewing as I'd pretty much forgotten all of the movie as it turns out. Fortunately it's as solidly entertaining as I thought I'd remembered, and the plot was reasonable enough. I don't think it's a Great movie by any means, but it's definitely worth watching & I'd watch it again. Just a thought: I forget sometimes about Ally Sheedy."

A good movie

“Basically, it is one of those movies I have been hearing about for years and I was definitely eager to finally check it out. Eventually, it turned out to be a really solid thriller and probably the most convincing movie dealing with hacking that I have seen so far. You see, I have been working in the ICT branch for many years and even though I’m not a expert (the cause of so much frustrations for my dear colleagues…), it is always pretty neat to see a movie about this subject but it is always disappointing how ridiculous and unconvincing all the computer stuff turn out to be portrayed. This flick was however an exception. Indeed, even though I have no clue if what the main character did was actually possible, it seemed possible and what he did with his computer usually made sense.
