If you aren’t a fan of The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension, WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?!? Go watch it. We’ll wait.
Ok, now that you’ve seen it, it’s awesome right? Of course, right. It’s certainly one of the best performances of an ensemble cast, maybe ever. Peter Weller, John Lithgow, Ellen Barkin, Jeff Goldblum, Christopher Lloyd, Clancy Brown, Robert Ito and Pepe Serna just to name a scant few.
Beating me to the punch, Topless Robot wrote this article. And it’s spot on in a lot of places. It also leaves out a lot. But I’m not surprised. You can’t expect one article to hold all of the awesome that is Buckaroo Banzai.
