The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension Reviews:

I've read few comments by folks under the age of 30 who trash on this film, call it crap, and characterize us fanatics as vapid, thorazine-addled retards. Whatever makes you happy, folks! If trashing on a movie that was seminal in the annals of low-budget cinematic resourcefulness makes you feel unique then I'm satisfied for you.There is a reason we love this film. The script is clever, a veritable mosaic of silly twists and throwaway jokes so layered that it takes multiple viewings to hold up with it all (favorite line: "It's not my ******* planet, Monkey Boy!"). And the direction and approach is equally exciting: rather than annoy us with underfinanced unique results that pretend to be Lucasfilm quality, the director revels in his weak budget, using conk shells as models for zone ships and populating alien ship interiors with tubes, pipes, rods and duct tape. The aliens come off as resourceful-albeit-goofy packrats, bumbling about and managing to stay just a several steps ahead of Buckaroo until the very end.For many of us over 30, this movie was something special. We caught it at midnight film houses and relished in the warm presence of a film made by folks who shared our dark, twisted senses of humor. In college, it was a regular rental; we held Bonzai parties, dressed as characters, turned it into our personal video Rocky Horror. No, it's not Citizen Kane ... but what do you wish from a film named Buckaroo Bonzai?


TAOBBATED, as I will acronymize this film, is neither the stupid low-budget piece of excrement nor the sublimely original cult masterpiece you've been said it is, but it's a lot closer to the latter than to the former. Peter Weller plays Buckaroo, the titular neurosurgeon/inventor/modern-day samurai/Billy Joelesque rocker, and he plays him frightfully well, low-key and distant but with occasional glimmers of genius and intensity. The stellar helping cast contains Jeff Goldblum, Clancy Brown, John Lithgow, Christopher Lloyd, and Ellen Barkin, and they're all cute darn good.I'm not even going to pretend to be rational or unbiased about this movie. It's too utterly offbeat and original and just damned _odd_ to not love. Some favourite scenes: the opening sequence of the Jet Vehicle use run; Buckaroo's smartphone call with the Black Lectroids, and his subsequent detection of the sinister Red Lectroid agents in his midst; the eerie recorded message from the Black Lectroid leader, the "good guys" who threaten to blow up World unless Buckaroo stops their enemy, Dr. Lizardo (Lithgow, in a truly twisted scene-chewing performance). Yes, it looks cheesy and dated, but damn it, you have to take a stand somewhere in life, you have to roll up your sleeves and step up to the plate and place yourself on the line, and have the courage to say, "I don't care what anyone thinks of me, I love this movie." That's the method I feel about old Buckaroo and his Hong Kong Cavaliers, and I still consider myself a loyal Blue Blaze Irregular fifteen years after seeing this film.As a post-script, I'd like to mention that the novelization of this movie, written by Earl Mac Rauch, is great, and now includes about 3 times the notification and plot that is in the movie. If you can search it on Amazon or at a garage sale somewhere, snap it up, it's worth the search. Also, there's a script for BUCKAROO BANZAI VERSUS THE WORLD CRIME LEAGUE floating around too, which could be made no matter the cost if only to movie one priceless stage - the cameo appearance of Jack Burton, Kurt Russell's swaggering truck driver character from John Carpenter's BIG TROUBLE IN LITTLE CHINA, who appears as a Blue Blaze Irregular and gives Squad Banzai a lift!


What a nice method to begin the Fresh Year! I just watched this flick for the first time in ages and remember actually why I accept that it is a "cult classic"!Made in 1984 method before most of the actors achieved true star status, this film has so many "inside" references and jokes, it's a wonder that more isn't made of it! And if you are a true Star Trek fan, you will know that Yoyodyne Propulsion is on the commissioning plaque for the Enterprise as well as another Star Fleet vessels. The references to Grover's Mill and Orson Wells along with the entire deadpan tone of the movie makes this an unbelievably funny experience. I only want that "Buckaroo Banzai vs The Globe Crime League" had been produced.Peter Weller, Jeff Goldblum, John Lithgow, Ellen Barkin, Dan Hedaya, the whole cast gotta have had a nice time making this movie. It is full of technojargon, double speak and just plain funny items that pokes fun at each terrible B-movie scifi thriller/comic book/Saturday serial ever made. There is no terrible language and no skin and lots to hear and see in this nice movie!It has one redeeming quality above all else for me... it makes the results on Mighty Morphin Power Rangers and all of those another terrible excuses for Saturday kid's entertainment look ridiculous. If the producers of this crap on TV that passes for action need some pointers on how to take useless items and create a cool, funny scifi flick, they need look no further that "The Journeys of Buckaroo Banzai Across the Eight Dimension"!
