And because we were fooled into thinking that what happened in the film was all real.

That wasn’t a spoiler. That was the entire marketing of the film. I remember a few of my friends thinking that the entire film was for real.

Wow, really good lineup. I was on tour in Spaceport America today in New Mex so I couldn’t join. Great tour, history in the making.

Damn it, I know, but still, it’s cool to bring in Val, Jaro and others we’ve invited for that. Speaking of which, who’s streaming WarGames, me or you?

You’ve got a Blu-ray rip of WarGames so it would be handy of you to screen it for Tuesday.

Aww, thanks. It’s also a film I saw in theaters, which hasn’t happened so far with the previous film screenings (the films we viewed so far were from the '60s).
