Blu-Ray Release Highlight: The Last Starfighter

thelaststarfighterNow here’s a release that tickes me, mainly because I grew up watching this movie: The Last Starfighter was released on Blu-Ray this week, and we’re pretty jazzed.

For those of you who haven’t seen it, it captures the adventure of Alex Rogan, a young kid at a trailer park bored with his life and feeling like there should be more out there. He gets his wish by becoming a galactic savior for an alien universe, and much explosions and mayhem ensue.

It’s funny, sad and interesting with layered characters and decent effects (for the time anyway). It captured that video game boom from the 80′s pretty well, and it’s now in HD for the first time. We can’t wait to grab it, and it comes out tomorrow at many retail locations.
