The cult classic starring Robocop himself, Peter Weller, as Buckaroo Banzai is a fun science fiction adventure worthy of a view. There are so many stars in this film I don't know where to begin, but I will say the character names are by far the best to come out of the 80s.

" I tried real hard to like this movie, but nope. My feelings while watching this alternated between boredom and confusion, back and forth like ping pong balls cross a long and neverending table. Actually, I like the idea of the film. It's about a "rock-star/brain-surgeon/comic-book-hero/samurai/etc." who is trying to save the world from aliens or something or other, I can't even explain the nebulous plot. But it's carried out in such a cathartic and low-quality sort of fashion, with horrib"

Interesting film facts (389 movies items)

"When it came time to film the end titles sequence, where Buckaroo and pals are walking around a dry L.A. aqueduct in step to the music, the music wasn't ready. Composer 'Michael Boddicker' told the film crew to use "Uptown Girl" by Billy Joel as a placeholder because it was the exact same tempo. Those scenes were filmed with "Uptown Girl" blaring from a boom box tied to the back of the camera truck. The latitude and longitude recited by the technicians during the "alignment" of the Oscillation"
