The Last Starfighter

This 1984 sci-fi fantasy is most noted for its video game-inspired plot and its pioneering use of computer-generated special effects. The effects look mighty primitive these days, but the film is still escapist fun. Largely forgotten actor Lance Guest stars as an unhappy teen who spends his days play a high-tech video game at a seedy trailer court. As luck would have it, though, the video game is a secret recruitment tool of space aliens who need help battling an evil empire. Soon our hero is using his joystick-waggling skills to pilot a real spaceship. At some point, he gets to kiss Catherine Mary Stewart as well. Not bad for a day's work. 101 minutes
