The Wizard, unironically, is one of my favorite movies. Sure, it's a glorified ad for Nintendo, but it's basically Rain Man for kids. I love the chemistry between the cast, and I especially love Will Seltzer's performance as the antagonist, Putnam. That was the first movie character I can remember hating as a kid, what a great portrayal.

It has been watched at least once a year since it came out for me (many early years after its release, probably more often).

It's a really great movie and has a lot under the surface of that Nintendo ad.
