B-Movie Buffet: The Last Starfighter

Prologue:
  Spawned from an earlier outing to see “Hobo With a Shotgun” and enlivened by an intense bowl of noodles, I thought it was time to create my own dishes to go with a few hit flicks that stoked the bubbling cauldron of movies condemned to the mainstream masses shit-list. Dishes paired with the energy of the film- a taste of the action, a slurp of the sensational and a bite of the best B movies out there(or at least in my archive). Now there is great debate as to what makes a film a B movie. In my eyes it has to be a cult classic, something that was never a huge cinema hit, or in general was not highly regarded by the contemporary cinema going audience. Mainly a mixed bag of thrillers, sci-fi and horror, they are prized by a select awesome few. As the articles roll out you’ll get the idea.

The Movie: The Last Starfighter

Your sitting in your trailer tucking into a grilled cheese sandwich. It’s so satisfying after a hard days work being a general handyman around the park. The stars above so bright, the night calm. An evening where the bugs provide the concerto. The only other sound is the looped dialogue coming from the arcade at the general store. Why not you think to yourself, slide in a quarter and grab the joystick. You are the top ranked player on this machine. No one can touch your skills. Who knew that this arcade was a recruiting device for the Rylan Star League. There is some serious space battles going on in the stars above and Alex Rogan is about to be dragged into the conflict. Can he defeat the Ko-Dan Armada?
Will he make it back to Earth to see his family again… will he ever be able to taste a grilled cheese sandwich again.

Tune in and find out. Grab one of these to enjoy while watching the most beautiful of underrated feelgood sci-fi movies of the mid eighties:

Grilled Cheese, with the buttery pungent Ardrahan cheese. A perfect melter that knows its place is not all over the plate. Included inside is the cheese-pleaser- poblano chiles.  Instead of the usual pickle, a little selection of silver onions and the puckering cornichons contrast the cheesy sweet bread melt. Add potato chips of your choice – ketchup optional.
