WarGames

  • Dan

    I have fond memories of WarGames from childhood. Haven’t seen it in quite a while.

  • How on Earth did you have time? Frankly I am quite jealous.

    Having seen Bill and Ted, Little Miss Sunshine, and Raise The Red Lantern for the first time is very cool. My three favorite films on this list.

    War Games is one I’ve been meaning to re-watch for the last six months. No one ever gets my quote when I go into the robot voice and say: Would You Like To Play A Game?

    Was there a reason for all the horror? Or are you simply a fan?

    • I’m a student, it’s summer and I couldn’t get anyone to hire me, so I just stayed home and watched movies all day.

      The horror thing is part of this marathon, which I’m trying to wrap up before going back to school. I’ll be going back to more artsy stuff in the fall. I do like horror, but I’m fairly selective in what I watch.

      • By all means, enjoy your movie watching. Work interrupting funsies is NOT choice at all.

        Ok, on the marathon, I like my horror in doses, but I can’t do that much, especially all at once unless Halloween is involved. I commend you on your commitment to it and hopefully you finish before school comes around!

  • Daaaaaaaaamn that’s a lot of movies. You had an interesting July. Amadeus was a movie I had to watch in class, but it’s so good I’ve watched it at least twice since then. I feel bad for the guy who played Amadeus; except for Parenthood, I’ve never seen him do anything else and that guy’s actually a good actor.

    Brick is one of my favorite movies of all-time, so enough said there.

    Seriously man, I wish I had the commitment to film watching like you have.

  • Quite a bunch of movies there. Glad to see you enjoyed Timecrimes, where are all the time-traveling movies??

    • In the ’80s, which I tend not to care for all that much. Case in point: Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure.
