  1. We watched "WarGames" (1983) last night.  It wasn't as dated as I thought it would be.  It has good acting, a story that keeps moving, and some really cool 80's arcade scenes.  Yes, the technology shown is really old (8" floppies!  A phone coupler modem!), but it doesn't distract at all.

      If you stop and think about it, that movie kind of foreseen internet hacking long before the internet was born.  Really a good movie.

      I always enjoyed that movie! I also think Matthew Broderick works so well in "Ferris Bueller's Day Off" because of a bit of typecasting in that we've already accepted him as a brilliant hacker kid whose great with technology and gets in over his head. "Cloak and Dagger" is another movie from around the same time, maybe not quite as good but has a similar feel as "WarGames"
