Press Quotes

I frankly can't imagine any fan of this film not being over the moon (no pun intended) about the uptick in clarity and detail levels across the board in this presentation when compared to the pretty lackluster video on the old Universal Blu-ray. All in all, this is another fantastic upgrade of a cult item by Arrow which should certainly be appreciated by most fans. Highly recommended

     —Blu-ray.com

The Last Starfighter (1984) is one of those great, escapist adventure films that so many kids saw on video and have a soft spot for to this day. Thanks to [Arrow Video's] new squeaky-clean 4K restoration, we know that the movie holds

     —Under the Radar

[Arrow Video's The Last Starfighter] is like a warm blanket-perfectly cozy and a much-needed shot of good ole positivity. With a nearly perfect presentation and a wonderful assortment extras new and old... Highly Recommended!

     —The Digital Bits

The Last Starfighter remains one of the quintessential films that demonstrates practically everything audiences loved about films from the 1980's. This release looks and sounds fantastic... Highest recommendation possible

     —Sci Fi History

The Last Starfighter is highly derivative of other sci-fi films, though it’s produced with such gumption and inspiration that you end up appreciating how it builds off of the popular sci-fi before it.

     —SAM COHEN, High-Def Digest

Of all of Hollywood’s attempts to cash in on the video game craze of the 1980s, The Last Starfighter trails only Tron as the decade’s most fondly nostalgized entry in the video game movie’s micro boom.

     —JAKE COLE, Slant Magazine

The film itself is like a warm blanket—perfectly cozy and a much-needed shot of good ole positivity. With a nearly perfect presentation and a wonderful assortment of extras new and old, this is definitely the kind of upgrade that fans of the film will appreciate. Highly recommended!

     —Tim Salmons, The Digital Bits

The Last Starfighter is a memorable 80s sci-fi adventure that has its place among the genre films of its era.

     —RALPH POTTS, AVS Forum

An 80’s sci-fi gem…
