Are you ready for some Totally Awesome Video Games?!?

We head to the arcade this week to discuss Greydon Clark's teen comedy Joysticks (1983) wherein the local gaming establishment is threatened by Mr. Rutter (Joe Don Baker). The film includes an incredible cast, featuring Jon Gries as King Vidiot.
