The clip above may not perfectly sum up Big Trouble in Little China, but it doesn't perfectly not sum it up either.
What are we talking about? We truly have no idea, which is indicative of how disorienting it is to watch the film in question. In Episode 16 of The Throwback Show, we attempt to make some sense of this thing, while also discussing some of the top songs on the charts in 1986. As always, the episode is on iTunes (and embedded just below this paragraph), and you can scroll down beyond that for more links related to 1986...
