The Last Starfighter

Stupidity: During the scene in which Grig and Alex share family photos, Alex goes to pull his wallet out of his back pocket while he's wearing his starfighter suit, which has no pockets, as can be seen when Alex walks towards Maggie after exiting the ship. (00:54:00)

Visible crew/equipment: When the Starcar lands for the second time, there is a shot where the car comes to a stop in front of the camera. In this shot, the wooden rafters of the sound stage can be seen. (Noted in the director's commentary).

Grig: Exactly! Xur thinks you're still on Earth. Classic military strategy, surprise attack.
Alex Rogan: It'll be a slaughter.
Grig: That's the spirit.
Alex Rogan: No, my slaughter! One ship against the whole Armada?
Grig: Yes, one Gunstar against the Armada. I've always wanted to fight a desperate battle against incredible odds.
