When we were young there were many movies that caught our imaginations. Star Wars made us all want to battle a galactic empire, Jurassic Park made us think that every bush the moved had a raptor hiding in it, Fast Times at Ridgemont High taught us about red bathing suits and The Last Starfighter made us belive that playing a video game could lead to an adventure in the stars.

We review The Last Starfighter this week on GMF. A fun movie that holds up despite very primitive special effects. While the effects look dated, at the time this movie was made the effects were not only state of the art, but they were ground breaking. This movie was the first time that cgi was used to show something other than visuals on  a computer screen.

Stay tuned for our question of the week based on the movie, what old movies could use a VFX upgrade? (what old movies would be made better if the effects were better)
