The first film to employ true 3D graphics was The Last Starfighter from Universal Pictures.Â For the teenage target audience, this was a perfect film as it focused on following your dreams instead of being satisfied with what life handed you.
Alex Rogan is a small town teenager with big time dreams. Dreams of college… of success… of marrying his girlfriend, Maggie. He’s just like everybody else, except Alex has a very special talent… that no one on Earth can appreciate. But, tonight, a mysterious stranger has called on Alex. He’s come from a galaxy that’s under attack from an alien force. And Alex’s unique ability is their last hope.
The movie, filled with space ships, aliens, and video games, also had the bonus benefit of starring Catherine Mary Stewart.
This movie still ranks as one of my all time favorites.
