The Last Starfighter is the ultimate video game fantasy come true!

Fresh: Great fun, with some truly comical moments; a must for pulp-heads and video-junkies.
I can't believe they have this movie on here. Lol. The last star fighter is a great little movie. It has that child-like feeling where a kid playing games imagine's the ships and universe becoming reality. It's humorous at times, but a good clean flick as well. Not bad.
The Last Starfighter... who started it all!
Not so many people are aware that The Last Starfighter started it all... CGI for making movies. Dollar for dollar for both making the movie and paying to see it, this may be THE, or one of the best movies for entertainment ever made! It is one of my favorite movies of all time, and I've been a movie watching "nut" for fifty-five years or so! Thanks iTunes store for making it available for download!
80's pop movies at their best
It's thin on plot, the graphics and special effects are ancient by current standards, the characters are pretty one-dimentional. It's everything you expect from one of these old classics from the camp generation. I never fail to walk away from this movie feeling inspired to fight the Kodan armada and Zur or wishing for The Last Starfighter II.
