Last night I watched The Matrix: Revolutions and The Last Starfighter. They are both pretty shitty science fiction movies, but each had their good points. For example, Neo’s line about continuing to fight because he chooses to do so was the high point of the movie for me since I wrote something sort of about that back in the day and cited a similar example from the Tao. The rest of the movie sucked.
The Last Starfighter was pretty fucken dumb too. I was 3 when it was released. I do think they need to bring back those short sport shorts that Catherine Mary Stewart was wearing. I can live without the plasticene alien prosthetics, though. Oh yeah, and the evil alien antagonist? Least. Intimidating. Ever. Someone call the intergalactic wahmbulance on that dumbass.
Don’t watch either of these. This has been a public service announcement. Tonight I watch Grand Illusion.
