Guardians of the Galaxy hits theatres this week, and boy has it been a long time since we could laugh at any movie related to space or aliens (non-derisively at least).
The trailers seem to be setting us up for a fun romp through the stars full of thrills and spills, laughs and gasps. With a leading man best known for his comedic turns in movies and on TV (Chris Pratt), we’re keeping our fingers crossed that Marvel’s latest blockbuster will live up to the feel-good vibes it’s generating.
The Last Starfighter
This was movie that launched a thousand arcades, with thousands of teens hopelessly pouring their tokens into video game machines. Alex Rogan is a trailer park teen who’s only outstanding achievement is his proficiency at an arcade game called “Starfighter”. When he gets the high-score, the game’s inventor (who turns out to be an alien) comes and takes him away to be a fly a real starfighter in a real galactic war.
Yeah, we know, we’ve had that dream a lot of times too. Too bad getting the high score never got us anywhere.
