WarGames

'Or How We Learned to Stop Worrying, Because Nuclear Brinksmanship Is as Simple as Tick-Tack-Toe.' Badham's movie was one of the first to pick up on home computer power - with schoolboy whiz Broderick hacking into his school files, and later chancing across a new 'game': Global Thermonuclear War. The first half has a sardonic edge to it, but the more seriously the movie takes itself the sillier it gets.
