Star Kid [DVD] [1998]

Manny Coto's family science-fiction film Star Kid comes to DVD with a pair of transfers. The widescreen transfer preserves the original theatrical aspect ratio of 1.85:1, and is preferable to the standard full-frame image. Spanish and French subtitles are accessible. Supplemental materials include a commentary track recorded by many of the people involved in the production, and the theatrical trailer. This is a fine release from Trimark.

Star Kid
Withdrawn, skinny seventh-grader Spencer Griffith (Joseph Mazzello), who spends recess avoiding class bully Turbo (Joey Simmrin), gets some encouragement from his teacher, Janet Holloway (Corinne Bohrer), but his life remains stuck at the starting gate. One night Spencer spots a meteor, checks it out, and discovers the android Cyborsuit (Alex Daniels, with the voice of Arthur Burghardt), a being that seeks an organic host to inhabit its interior. Spencer does just that, and once inside, he learns that he has superpowers. Obviously, Turbo will prove to be no match, but then Spencer finds he must defeat the outer-space arachnid Broodwarrior (Brian Simpson). Filmed under the working title The Warrior of Waverly Street. ~ Bhob Stewart, Rovi
