This review is from: Wargames [VHS]  (VHS Tape)
This is one of those films that many of us grew up with in our youth - you know what i mean, it falls into the same category as The Goonies, BMX Bandits and the Indiana Jones and Star Wars trilogies. This was the first film that brought Matthew Broderick to the fore in a relatively simple role. A young computer nerd accidently hacks into the mainframe defence computer in charge of the Defending the USA - nearly beginning World War three. The story may be simple but in many ways like all great films that is what makes it effective. I unreservedly love this film and the scene where Matthew Brodericks dad uses bread to spread butter onto his corn on the cob is a priceless moment in cinema - if you would like a nice Sunday afternoon film then this is the film for you! Hope you enjoy.
