Some movies age better than others, but one thing that always make it a little more difficult for a film to stand the test of time is a narrative that leans heavily on computer wizardry. Making it look real and timeless (as much as you can anyway) is a real tricky balance, and more often than not, it's hard to pull off (please see "The Net"). But the '80s, in particular, saw a number of movies in which keystrokes were a central component of the plot, and decades on, the results range from quaint to hilarious.

WarGames Ansel Elgort Tye Sheridan
Don't be too surprised that MGM, in their continuing string of remakes, is looking at rebooting the '80s nuclear fear classic "WarGames." A few years ago, "Horrible Bosses" helmer Seth Gordon was attached to direct, but then that went nowhere. But the project is kicking back up again, with a new filmmaker in place and a couple of young actors being eyed to be the next Matthew Broderick.

Exclusive: Director Seth Gordon, the man behind the cameras of "Four Christmases" and this weekend's "Horrible Bosses" still has people talking about his debut feature, the documentary "The King Of Kong: A Fistful Of Quarters" four years since it hit theaters. The sleeper sensation was an unlikely hit, tracking Billy Mitchell and Steve Wiebe as they slugged out to wear the crown as the champion players of Donkey Kong. As funny and at times absurd as that story was, it was also unexpectedly tender and moving, and it's no surprise that New Line snapped up the rights to remake it into a feature film. And even as Gordon has gone on to work both in film and television on a variety of projects, "King Of Kong" is still a movie people want to talk about and thought movement has slow, we recently caught up with the director who told is it's still definitely happening.

Reboot! That seems to be the buzzword over at MGM who have films like "Carrie," "The Idolmaker," "Poltergeist" and "RoboCop" all in various stages of development, and what the hell, might as well add one more.
