Saturday Supercade: Electric Dreams (The Duel)

I almost feel like I should have kept this for Trailer Tuesday but the clip posted below is one of my favorite moments from this wonderful cult film. I mean how could you not love a movie where a man’s (Lenny von Dohlen) personal computer becomes sentient because he pours a bottle of champagne on it because it is overheating…then the computer falls in love with the man’s next door neighbor (Virginia Madsen) and engages in a musical duel with her as seen below. I dare you not to smile by the 2:18 mark.

It also has one of the greatest soundtracks for an 80’s film.
