  • One of my favorite 80s films. It really defines what 80s movies were all about.
    Nonsensical, fantasy storylines, great action and one liners galore!

  • Watch Futurama: "How Hermes got his Groove Back" one of the buildings guards resembles the creature. It also is similar to a demon in the Doom series.
  • Best. Movie. EVER. One of THE best parts of it, is the music video from the end credits. It was on the DVD. It's SO BAD that it's awesome.
  • Wow, I was hoping you would do this. I consider it part of the holy trinity of 80's movies for sheer silly goofiness. The other two are Repo Man and The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension. Thanks guys, love the shows.
  • One of the best movies of all time. The mix of camp, action and supernatural components is fantastic.
  • "What does that mean, huh? 'China is here.' I don't even know what the hell that means..." This movie was awesome when 9 year old me saw it and its even better when 34 year old me watches it.
