The Last Starfighter Reviews

    This is a very entertaining movie. Great story and a fun adventure. This movie screams a remake since it is still relevant today. The effects are a little dated but beyond that it is a great rags to riches story.

    This very entertaining bit of 80s nostalgia is worth the watch just for the music, and the Music Man in space. The special effects might be dated, but it's such a fantastic movie. If you missed it back in the day, go back now. It's worth it.

    Too much fun for one movie, with its spirit, tone, effects, action, and heart transcending any egotistical notions of being "dated". Safan's timeless score it one for the ages.

    Lance Guest plays Alex Rogan, trailer park resident and arcade game aficionado.  Once he hits high score, he is recruited by Centauri to help with a fight in space.  Soaked in 80's looks and atmosphere, this one is always more fun to revisit than I remember liking it as a kid.

    This was my READY PLAYER ONE / ENDER'S GAME of the 1980s. As a kid, one would always dream about being able to use video game skills to save the planet. For the first time in 1984, somebody took this concept and made it into a reality. A delightful sci-fi revisit that's theme song characters brought back many nostalgic memories for myself.

    The Last Starfighter is an interesting movie made by Nick Castle aka Michael Myers. I like the special effects, the characters, the story and the cast. It may be a ripoff of both Star Wars and Star Trek but at least Nick Castle has made his film into a original science fiction movie. I do have some issues with the effects because it didn't age well. Nevertheless, I give the visuals a pass because it was made at the time. Overall, The Last Starfighter is a unique science fiction movie to see.

    Love me some 80s sci-fi. Classic a must watch if you like space and 80s style films. Remake?
