Peter Weller and John Lithgow each made memorable movies in the ‘80s. Why was their comic book styled project in 1984 a bust at the box office? JediShua and shazbazzar have a couple ideas after watching this cult-classic with their families this week.

PLUS: Batman on Amazon Prime, Lieutenant Uhura in space, Jim Henson makes the news in a Dark Crystal documentary and PBS special, Dune gets a deserved 3 hour fan edit, and holograms and hoverboards bring the future even closer to the present.
