So tonight I watched Wargames on the big screen. They had a special showing for the 25th anniversary and to promote a new "sequel" that is going straight to DVD. Apparently the guys running the distribution of the film (Fathom Events) must have barely left the 80s as the movie died with about 20 minutes left and revealed a Windows 98 machine on the screen that apparently had been running the movie. They did finally get things working again, but overall the presentation was lacking. They didn't even have the aspect ratio correct so the sides of the movie were chopped off.
