Awesome, wacky 80s cult classic. Great cast.

Buckaroo Banzai is one of those films I go back and watch again every few years. The eclectic plot line, characters and (by today's standards) hilarious special effects are a lot of fun. But what really makes this movie worth going back to is the cast. Peter Weller, John Lithgow, Jeff Goldblum and many others that were in this film saw their careers flourish in the following years.

This is a crazy film of a hard rocking scientist who saves the world from aliens recently escaped from their prison inside solid matter. This singer/leader of the Hong Kong Cavaliers must keep the escapees from stealing his oscillation overthruster, a device that will allow them to release more prisoners, or else face the wrath of the Lectroids who put them in prison in the first place! Can Buckaroo Banzai save the planet?? This is fun film notable for it's 80's fashion and dry wit. I highly recommend it. Remember, no matter where you... there you are!
