The Last Starfighter was the story of a guy who escaped trailer park life by becoming really good at an arcade game- his epic high score got the attention of aliens who were in need of a hero, and a generation of kids who grew up loving video games were officially hooked by this dream come true premise.
When The Last Starfighter came out in 1984 arcade obsessed kids just couldn't get enough, but most of us knew very little about the movie except for what we saw on the screen, and the fact that Atari promised us a Last Starfighter arcade game but never delivered.
Now that io9 has revealed Everything You Never Knew About The Making of Last Starfighter it's time to dust off the VCR and rewatch this fun 80s flick, if only to remind ourselves why we were so obsessed with it as kids!
