Colossus: The Forbin Project

Colossus: The Forbin Project

I do love a good science-fiction thriller, and this 1970 film about a computer becoming sentient and deciding to take over the world, is a fine effort!. The computer, Colossus and its architect, Dr. Forbin, find themselves at odds when Colossus is handed control of all of the United States and Allied nuclear weapons systems. Deemed to be the perfect defense system, things start going awry when Colossus learns of another similar computer, Guardian, which has control over the nuclear systems from the USSR.

As you can see from the trailer, Colossus means business and even controls Forbin’s sex life at one point! 4 times a week? Agreed!
