Great kitschy 80's movie. Robert Preston's last screen performance, and he makes it memorable as basically the "Music Man from Space"

Never seen this one...tempted to add to my collection. Is it worth it?

@dmaz: Most definitely. This is one of the best '80s scifi movies.

@dmaz: Yes, if for no other reason than that this was the first movie to use CGI.

@rprebel @rbmcmjr: Thanks! I love retro-80's stuff and early CGI :)

Teriffic. I'm about to get killed a million miles from nowhere with a gung-ho iguana who tells me to relax.

This movie is chock-full of 80s cheesy goodness!

Unfortunately, like many old movies, the move to Blu-ray just isn't worth it. You'd be better off finding a cheap copy of the Widescreen Collector's Edition.

Definitely classic 80's Sci-Fi. I believe that this was one of the first movies that used CGI for much of the principal scenes. It looked amazing to me as a kid - and loving space battles, this was pretty fantastic.

Definitely worth adding to your collection if you like that type of movie!

@steelwells: Yup, they used a Cray super computer for the graphics, and even then it took days to render anything. Now I can get better graphics in real-time on my cellphone. Kind of makes me feel old.

@grimor: At < $10, it doesn't have to be a "perfect" Blu-Ray in my book. The wide-screen collector DVD isn't going to be much, if any cheaper.

We have the Blu-Ray and it's just fine...

@rbmcmjr: The first? TRON was earlier by 2 years.

@urchin1: Not sure it was the first, but one of the most extensive at the time. If I recall correctly, TRON was mainly wireframes, etc. Starfighter had more advanced rendering...
