The Last Starfighter

Poster for the movie "The Last Starfighter"

The Last Starfighter brought us Rylans, the Kodan, Zando-Zans, Grig, Beta Units and whatever the hell Centauri was. It also delivered childhood dreams of video game supremacy that would carry us to the stars.

But does all that make up for hammy acting, eye-melting CGI and an alien race who look like balding boobs? That’s this week’s debate, and Shat The Movies’ three-man panel is split like never before.

So load up your meteor cannon, strap into your gunstar and get ready to discover a whole lot more about Roger’s sex life.
