Name: The Last Starfighter
Distributor: Universal Pictures
Director: Nick Castle
Country of origin: USA
Alex Rogan, a kid who gets discovered playing an arcade game and chosen to pilot a starship and fight in a Galactic war. What young boy seeing this in the 80s wouldn’t love it! I think it still holds up very well too. Great performance by Robert Preston as Centauri. Interesting titbit of information… the director, Nick Castle, was the first actor to portray Michael Myers in Halloween.
