Cinema Remix: Flight of the Navigator

Cinema Remix is a new series featuring improvisational film scoring by Charlie Coffeen (Sidewalk Chalk) and Mike Handler (Push Beats).

Flight of the Navigator is about a 12-year-old, who while playing in the woods near his home in 1978, is knocked unconscious. He awakens and heads home, only to find strangers living there. He also finds that the year is 1986, and that he’s been missing for eight years. NASA officials determine that David was abducted by aliens, and scan the boy’s brain in order to unlock the secrets of the universe. Answering the call of a strange, unseen force, David boards a spaceship and takes off, guided by the wisecracking voice of a computer named MAX (voiced by none other than Paul Reubens, aka Pee-Wee Herman). Realizing that he can’t fit into 1986 so long as he’s a child of the ’70s, David hopes to retrace the steps of his alien abductors and get back to his own time.
