No, i don't think many people ever heard it (except die hard genre fans i guess).

Shmups, the shortend term of Shoot'em ups, is much longer around than you think. Over 20 years. The shmups site is online since 1997. I've heard it before that, but don't know where exactly.

LOL, no. The movie was always fun (great soundtrack). A parody of the 80s action genre. The game, meh. Very generic action stuff, with technical issues. Like most movie licensed games.

If you want to code or maybe doing some music it's fine. But doing graphics and mostly gaming/demos doesn't look good in a stretched aspect. Well, some don't care anyway.

"Full Screen TV" scaling seems to work too. But anyway, far away from real pixel/aspect ratio.
