Look like they are fecking with another classic film:
And you thought The Lost Boys direct-to-dvd sequel looked bad… take a look atÂ MGM’s direct to dvd sequel to one of my all-time favorite movies - the classic 1983 sci-fi hacker film WarGames. And sadly, NO, this is NOT an April Fools Day joke…
WarGames: The Dead Code stars Matt Lanter as a computer geek named Will Farmer who engages a government super-computer named R.I.P.L.E.Y. and enters in a game of online terrorist-attack simulation (yes, instead of global thermonuclear war from the original movie). But apparently the game is actually part of a sophisticated piece of government spyware designed to find potential terrorists. Homeland Security, now believing Farmer is a terrorist, sets out to apprehend him. And the computer, of course, forgets that it’s just playing a game.
I actually saw that film a few days ago, noticed it in a DVD stand and thought I would give it a chance. NOT a good idea I can tell you, the terrorist-attack simulation was absolutely ridiculous and the plot was about as solid as a bowl of jello.
