A physicist, a neurosurgeon, a martial artist, a rock musician and a comic book hero walk into a bar. His name is Buckaroo Banzai. The savior of the eighth dimension is multitalented and never boring. His team of assistants/rock and roll band, the Hong Kong Cavaliers, lives together in a think tank in New Jersey and spends its time saving the world, dressin' fancy and building a jet car that will drive through solid matter. Nerd alert: if you think the "oscillation overthruster" looks a lot like the "flux capacitor" from the Back to the Future trilogy, you're right. My theory is that it belongs to Christopher Lloyd, and he keeps his weed in it. Catch The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension at midnight Friday and Saturday at the Inwood Theatre, 5458 W. Lovers Lane. Tickets are $8.50. Call 214-764-9106.
