A forgotten classic

on 5/17/2012

This movie is a classic for people who can say they watched it when they were kids or at least during a time when computer generated effects were non-existent. This movie was one of the first to attempt it. It's definitely a movie. It has a very interesting plot. It plays sort of like a typical sci-fi movie, expect the sci-fi plot is in the background for most of the movie, and the highlighted plot is about this kid having to deal with the fact that he is really awesome at video games and they need him to be really awesome at saving a planet Read More

Editors Note
Note Teenager Alex Rogan lives and works in the trailer-park that his mother owns. His life consists of contemplating his rather bleak future, and waiting for word on his college loan application to arrive. One night all this changes forever. Alex possesses an extraordinary skill at video games, and when this skill attracts a space-travelling recruiter looking for pilots to protect the galaxy from outside forces, he suddenly finds himself on another planet in the middle of an inter-galactic war. It seems that his game-playing abilities are an invaluable military asset to the embattled "Star League of Planets."
