Ben Crandall, an alien-obsessed kid, dreams one night of a circuit board. Drawing out the circuit, he and his friends Wolfgang and Darren set it up, and discover they have been given the basis for a starship. Setting off in the ThunderRoad, as they name their ship, they find the aliens Ben hopes they would find... but are they what they seem?

Summer 2020 Viewings (30 movies items)

"Format: Streaming Viewing: 2nd (or 3rd) Thoughts: Great little 80s sci-fi flick from goofball director Joe Dante. Has all the 80s coming-of-age trappings: geeks and bullying, space exploration slash video gaming, playing outdoors and building things, and a group of friends taking on the world together. A classic from my childhood."

Moviewatcher122's 2016 Film Diary: April (28 movies items)

"April 15 "I've waited all my life to say this." "Be my guest." "We come in peace." This may not be Joe Dante's best work, but I still really enjoyed this movie. It's a really fun movie with a down to earth premise, good acting from our child starts especially a very young Ethan Hawke and like pretty much all of Joe Dante's movies they look really impressive on a visual level even though some of the effects look very cheesy and dated by todays standards, but even that isn't a problem as it ad"
