My cheesy but awesome 80’s movie theme continues with another one of my childhood faves, The Last Starfighter! A guy getting recruited to save the world because he’s so awesome at video games? That was like my dream as a kid. I was destined to love this movie. I’m sure the crappy Hollywood Reboot-o-tron will chew this movie up and spit it back out at us with a desaturated palette and a “grittier” take, thereby missing the entire point as Hollywood likes to do. But we will always have the original, complete with creepy beta unit and childhood crush Catherine Mary Stewart. And death blossom. Don’t forget death blossom.
