The tech is now way outdated, but somehow there is still a core of th story that works. See it with "Dr. Strangelove." "Strange game. The only winning move is, not to play."

A classic both in the anti-nuke/war sense, and the hacker genre. An insanely great film, with a great start and colossal ending.

Falken: "Did you ever play 'tic-tac-toe'?" Jennifer: "Yeah, of course." Falken: "...but you don't anymore." Jennifer: "No." Falken: "Why?" Jennifer: "It's a boring game. It's always a tie." Falken: "Exactly! There's no way to win. The game itself is pointless."

Joshua; Greetings Professor Falken.
Falken; Hello, Joshua.
Joshua; A strange game. Only winning move is not to play. How about a nice game of chess?

Actually, that's "You are listening to a machine. Do the world a favor...".
