'The Last Starfighter'
What's the best way to test out someone's mad savior-of-the-galaxy skillz? With an 8-bit arcade game, of course! That's the premise of this 1984 flick, which took the high-scorer on the fake game 'Starfighter' and put him in the cockpit of an actual spacecraft. Cue the battles, the betrayals, and the bumbling android double wandering around a trailer park.
