Welcome back to Movies that Make Us. This week we are going back into the archives to talk about one of the classic films of 1983, War Games.
High school student David Lightman (Matthew Broderick) unwittingly hacks into a military supercomputer while searching for new video games to play. After starting a game of Global Thermonuclear War, lightman accidentally has the supercomputer activate the nation’s nuclear arsenal in response to his simulated threat as the Soviet Union. Once he realizes the danger he’s created, Lightman must work with his girlfriend (Ally Sheedy) to alert the authorities and stop World War III from happening.
