1984, Universal, 101 min, USA, Dir: Nick Castle

Lance Guest plays a bored teenager who lives in a trailer park but dreams of something more. To pass the time, he becomes an expert video game player and eventually learns that his skill is the ticket to adventure that he's been looking for. It seems that the game has been placed on Earth by aliens who need soldiers to wage war in outer space! Robert Preston is a delight in his final role, as the alien who shows Guest the ropes, in this terrific adventure for all ages.
