    Correct me if I'm wrong, but doesn't John Spencer (i.e. Leo McGarry) play the role of a fighter pilot in War Games? Or am I on crack again?

    No, he's one of the guys in the silo at the beginning who can't bring himself to turn the key, leading them to give the job to the computer and setting off the plot. The other guy in the silo, by the way, is Michael Madsen.

    Encore has all these channels . . . and they put this movie on the "mystery" channel?


    Joshua, what are you doing?

    Side note: Stupidest line of the movie --- "I told you not to play games with that thing." Armageddon is five minutes away, and Jennifer has to get in the "I told you so"????

    Side note II: Class president at one of our high schools recently got busted for trying to pull a Lightman by hacking into the school computer and changing grades.

    Yes indeed, he is in the beginning of the movie, but I didn't realize that until I'd already been watching WW for some time. It was one of those, "Hey, that's Leo!" moments.
  8. You guys are missing the best line. Barry Corbin, about halfway through the whole fiasco goes "I'd piss on a spark plug if I thought it would help."

    Sidebar: The chick that does the countdown totally nailed it. When she said "impact" in that cool, aloof voice my 10-year-old self was going "Man, we're screwed."

    Hate to do this in my own defense, but ... see post No. 8.

    I never really got into Ally...although she was a little quirky kind of cute in Short Circuit...
