WARGAMES. John Badham, dir. USA: MGM/United Artists, 1983.

Combines motifs of the computer tyrant and the Strangelovian doomsday concept, largely set in the NORAD missile command enclave. See for detailed computer operation sequences and listen for hacker jargon. Discussed by V. Sobchack in Screening Space[1], Chapter 4; also see Randy Lofficier, "WARGAMES," Space Voyager #6 (1984-85): 62-65.
