The Last Starfighter (1984)
"The Last Starfighter" was a sci-fi action movie from the 1980s which featured a young Lance Guest (actor in Jaws 2 & Halloween 2) and as a video game player at a trailer park, who is recruited as a starship gunner for an alien defense force. I think Mike and the boys could really have fun with this one!

With Ernest Cline’s Armada coming this would be great, especially since I don’t think Mike has seen it
I watched that over and over when I was little. I'm from Las Vegas, so it cracked me up that the big excitement was a kid beating a high score at a video game. It felt slightly corny way back then. Now it is definitely corny, and I can't believe I watched it that much.
