War Games 2?

I just found an old posting for an event in July, where they were showing War Games in the theaters again across the country, for just one night/showtime as a 25th anniversary celebration. The subtext was that they would also show scenes from the making of the upcoming sequel. A little Google action, and I have the IMDB site and also a YouTube trailer for War Games: The Dead Code. It’s billed as a sequel, but from what I can see it’s just a remake. And a bad one, at that. Computers have advanced a lot since War Games came out, but Hollywood’s accuracy about computers has not. 😦

Hell… I watched the trailer for the original War Games again, and it *still* looks better than the new one, despite being 25 years old.

I just hope it doesn’t end with something as cheesey as a 0-player game of Tic Tac Toe. But I fear it will be worse than that, somehow.
