The Last Starfighter (1984)
Greetings, Starfighter. It must be tough recruiting an ace pilot to take on Xur and the Ko-Dan armada – that's why the Star League cunningly planted arcade machines around the universe, in the hope that a hero would complete the game and jump into space for a taste of the real thing. That hero is whiney trailer-trash, Alex Rogan. Wonderfully cheesy.
