"A teenage kid discovers that the video game he has mastered is secretly a celestial training simulation program, when he is notified by an alien who reveals to him that he is a gunner/star-soldier in an intergalactic war between good and evil. So, to all you video gamers out there, don't listen to society when it tries to convince you that all those hours spent on your x-box, gameboy or psp will eventually accumulate into a vast amount of wasted life. For all anybody knows, you could very well b"

"Re-watch - Sept. 9th I picked this up from the library too, thinking that I'd either watch it with my daughter or watch it on my own. I definitely hadn't seen it since the '90s, and recall loving it when I was younger. And aside from the effects it's held up pretty well. I was surprised.
