4.0 out of 5 stars A great value, considering the used prices. May 22, 2012
Verified Purchase
Astronomy 101 collects three movies from the 80's in a single case. What you're essentially getting is a re-packaging of some DVDs, which is nice, as the DVD releases for Killer Klowns and Buckaroo Banzai are loaded with extras, and those extras are all retained in this set.

As for the movies themselves, you get two excellent cult classics and one Mel Brooks movie that hasn't held up as well as some of his others. Here's the breakdown:

Killer Klowns From Outer Space: As the title might suggest, this is hardly high art. This film is a fun throwback to 50's monster/alien invasion movies (with plenty of plot points in common with the Blob). The title pretty much sums it up, aliens that look like clowns come to earth and capture/kill people for the purpose of eating them. What makes this very silly concept succeed (and what makes this movie a genuine cult classic) is the complete commitment to and thoroughness of the idea. Its not just aliens that look like clowns chasing and capturing people, its that these clowns shoot heat seeking pop corn, have balloon animal tracking dogs, wrap people in cotton candy, and drink their blood with crazy straws. It also helps that the actors basically play it straight. Its mostly funny, but does serve up a chill or two. If you dig old B-movies, you'll like what they did here.

Buckaroo Banzai (I'm not typing the full title): This one is a love it or hate it film, though the first time you see it you'll probably just be really confused. Here's the plot summary from Amazon's page for the DVD... "Peter Weller stars as Buckaroo, an acclaimed neurosurgeon, particle physicist, and, of course, rock star. He travels with the Hong Kong Cavaliers, a band of hard-rocking scientists who are also really good dressers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good value, if you like the movies December 2, 2010
This package gets you three films (Spaceballs, Killer Klowns from Outer Space, and The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai) for less than it takes to buy two of them separately. Spaceballs is the funniest movie on the disc, and the best known. The other two are reasonably amusing as well. If you're looking to get a hold of these movies, it's a really good deal.

I was looking for Buckaroo BonZai, but it is prohibitively expensive by itself. I found this collection, including Buckaroo, and it was much, much cheaper. Sweet!

5.0 out of 5 stars Laugh til you Cry April 1, 2013
Verified Purchase
These are some of the funniest, without meaning to be, movies of the science fiction style. The Killer Klowns with all the slapstick humor is great. It makes you think twice about cotton candy. Buckaroo Banzai saving the world from the aliens that landed for War of the Worlds radio broadcast is a laugh riot, even when it's supposed to be sad. Spaceballs is the funniest Mel Brooks movie ever, and a family favorite. The quotes are unforgettable, with a short, clutzy version of Darth Vader and veiled references to other movies that will have you watching it again and again. It has become a classic. You won't be sorry to have this when you hear the "nothing's on TV" from your family.
