2010 is such an underappreciated movie. I mean it's terrible but it's wonderful. It's like the most vaporwave SF movie ever. Tanned Roy Scheider on the beach with an apple IIc and Omni magazine, dolphins, vector graphics, shrieking klaxons, digital watches, FM synth soundtrack, overalls, humorless sweaty Russian scientists at glowing red control panels, Dana Elcar with a fake Russian accent, Bob Balaban having concerned paternal conversations with AIs, John Lithgow having a panic attack. Yes.

Annoyed at myself for being annoyed by existence of jokes / puns / sarcasm. The Internet has ruined my sense of humor.

General Beringer is based on General Hartinger, the real life commander of Cheyenne Mountain at the time. He approved of the message of the movie; with regard to the idea of machines taking over, he told Lasker 'God damn, you're right! I sleep well at night knowing I'm in charge.’

Screenwriters Lawrence Lasker and Walter F. Parkes befriended several hackers while researching WarGames.

They would later write Sneakers together... @SetecAstrononomy :blobwave:
