I've been trying to remember the name of a movie I saw once, when I was younger. The movie takes place in a post-apocalyptic world. Water is rationed and the world is basically a desert. All the water in the world has been locked up in a building/bunker.

I remember there being some, I think kids, playing a hockey-like game with round balls. One of them finds a new ball the glows or something, in the end it turns out to be a comet.

I know it sounds weird, maybe I made it up and just think I watched it when I was a kid. It may well have been a made-for-tv movie. Anyone remember anything like this that can help describe it better than me? I'm looking for the title of the movie.

It would probably help if you can tell us when you saw that movie. –  System Down Jun 2 '12 at 7:08
    
@SystemDown - maybe early 1990s. I'm 35 now and I was in middle school or highschool when I saw it. –  Justin808 Jun 2 '12 at 7:16

It should be Solarbabies.

While searching for it, I also found this one that is on a similar topic and seems interesting.

EDIT:

Storyline

In a future in which most water has disappeared from the Earth, we find a group of children, mostly teenagers, who are living at an orphanage, run by the despotic rulers of the new Earth. The group in question plays a hockey based game on roller skates and is quite good. It has given them a unity that transcends the attempts to bring them to heel by the government. Finding an orb of special power, they find it has unusual effects on them. They escape from the orphanage (on skates) and try to cross the wasteland looking for a place they can live free as the stormtroopers search for them and the orb.

Which had the actors who played Michael and Star in "Lost Boys" which in turn was a marketing point because the film was 'a tad' on the weak side. –  Andrei Freeman Jun 2 '12 at 14:26

It is Solarbabies. How did you find it, I've searched IMDB many times. Tank Girl is a fun movie to, I remember watching that as a kid as well. –  Justin808 Jun 2 '12 at 18:41
    
Avio, please add a synopsis of the movie and why this is the answer to the question. –  DForck42 Jun 2 '12 at 19:29
