Flight of the Wayback Machine

I got together with a few work friends last night to watch the 1986 Disney movie Flight of the Navigator. It was funny because, while planning the get-together to watch it, everyone (and I mean everyone) had the exact same reaction: "OMG, I haven't seen that in forever!"

The movie, while somewhat cheesy by today's standards, and co-starring a very young Sarah Jessica Parker, was still entertaining. Sure, we hurled a few witty comments at the screen here and there, but overall it was enjoyable to watch. Trivia: Even though the voice of the spaceship is credited as "Paul Mall," it is actually Paul Reubens (Peewee Herman).

But we may have unleashed a monster. There is already talk of rockin' it old-school geek style with TRON, The Last Starfighter, and Wargames.

Oh man - those are all such great movies. I watch WarGames every time it is on TV. That's in my top 5 for sure.

I picked up Flight of the Navigator for $3.00 a few months ago and pretty much had the same reactions you reported. I also own Tron and Wargames, and I wouldn't mind picking up the Last Starfighter.

Those movies are fun.
