The Last (Fuzzy) Starfighter
Reedit by The Fuzzystar Organization, 2012, 60 min.
The Last Starfighter is one of the first films to use extensive computer-generated imagery (CGI). Although these graphics look cheesy now, the nearly 300 scenes containing computer graphics in the film which depict its many starships, environments and battle scenes were considered a great leap into the future compared to contemporary films such as 1983's Return of the Jedi, which still used static physical models shot by moving film cameras.
This reedit cuts out the soppy sub-plots and gets right into the thick of the CGI driven Starfighter scenes. Featuring new original scenes from the Fuzzystar crew, music videos, live action, and free popcorn!
