The 1980s marked a significant decade in the movie industry. It was during this time that blockbuster films popped up almost every year. From sci-fi to horror to action and adventure to wars and drama, the 80s had them all.
I could never forget Drew Barrymore’s cute screams in E. T. The Extraterrestrial and E. T.’s sad refrain "E. T., phone home.” It was one of the best movies that I saw when I was a kid. Back to the Future with Michael J. Fox was also a fave, especially with the mad scientist played by Christopher Lloyd! Being a movie and a cartoon fan, I drooled over the crazy, but lovable Roger Rabbit in Who Framed Roger Rabbit? The sci-fi imagining of George Lucas in The Empire Strikes Back and The Return of the Jedi hooked me to the Star Wars Saga that even today, still entertains me. Ah, what a decade. It brought wonderful movies to all of us.
Why am I blabbing about 1980s films? It’s because WarGames starring Matthew Broderick, is having its 25th Anniversary and is showing for one night only on July 24, 2008 in selected theaters. This movie is a 1983 classic about computers and hacking. Although I only saw a part of this movie on Cable T.V., I would want to see it back on the big screen again. Not only will they be featuring never-before-seen interviews from cast and crew so this is one gig that you wouldn’t want to miss!
