Stephen Hawking is betting on war.

This 1984 cult classic introduces the idea of a rock star / physicist / neurosurgeon superhero, battling an alien invasion from another dimension.

Contribution to the meme: In this campy romp the Earth is caught in the middle of a war between two competing extra-dimensional groups. In one scene, the hero, Buckaroo Banzai, receives a shock and an extraterrestrial message over the telephone, similar to some accounts of strange phone calls allegedly from the aliens.

I introduced Jacques Vallee to Francis Ford Coppola in 1975 at a party with Uri Geller. Vallee became technical advisor to Spielberg's "Close Encounters of the Third Kind" as a result of that party at Francis's home in Pacific Heights. I met Francis through his wife Ellie during the 1975 April C Celebrity est Training that Werner Erhard paid me to attend.
