Flick Pick: The Last Starfighter

The Last Starfighter
(Universal, 1984)

An enjoyable sci-fi riff on the success of Star Wars, and a pioneering film in its use of CGI. Robert Preston was a delight in his last onscreen role, a con man to the last, and it also featured the lovely and too seldom-seen Catherine Mary Stewart in her prime.

Prof. Harold Hill in Space. Fun movie. Have owned this since it came out on VHS. Soundtrack ain't half bad, either.
