Perhaps some of you may remember this movie with some fondness. This is the one about the kid who lives in the trailer park and plays a videogame all the time. The game is about defeating some enemy and becoming a great starfighter pilot. Suddenly, the kid finds out that the game is really a training/recruitment tool of some kind of galactic federation that looks for pilots in unlikely places. Someone turns up to persuade him to come and join, even gives him a tour of the fighter facility on another planet. He turns them down--"It's not my war," and returns home only to find out the enemy won't leave him or earth alone unless he helps to defeat them. So he goes back to join up and defend earth and the galaxy.
Did anyone else like this movie, or am I silly for starting this thread? Can anyone remember who was in this flick? I can't remember offhand. Any comments?
