Re: Who remembers the film 'The Last Starfighter'?

I don't need the link, mate; you are on about Battle Beyond The Stars, a space remake of The Magnificent Seven, if you read between the lines. Not a bad movie, but not great either....George Peppard was in it too...

I know that The Last Starfighter starred Robert Preston, but I would need to look up who the kid was.

Re: Who remembers the film 'The Last Starfighter'?

I also thought of Battle Beyond the Stars when I read the initial post, but then remembered what The Last Starfighter actually was. I've not seen it since the 80's though so can't really remember it. Will have to watch it again.

BTW, a bit off topic, but there was another film made that used all of the special effects from Battle Beyond the Stars, including all of the ships. Does anyone remember what that film was?

Thanks. I remember seeing it on TV after the original and thinking "hang on..."

It wasn't a good film either!

I LOVE LOVE LOVE this movie! It's extremely cheesy but very funny and just feels retro through and through. I actually bought the movie on DVD. Thanks for the links everyone! I can't wait to try out the game.

:D
