Buckaroo Banzai

20th Century Fox

Having emerged from our Summer vacation, Cargill and I hit the ground running so fast that you’d think we had oscillation overthrusters strapped to our backs. In honor of my overwhelming crush on all that is Guardians of the Galaxy, we have curated our first ever ongoing series here at JFC. Over the next few weeks, we’ll be examining our favorite sci-fi comedies from years past.

First up, we go gallivanting into the 8th dimension with the likes of none other than Buckaroo Banzai himself. What is it about this weird cinematic goulash that has remained so indelible to cult audiences for decades? What behind-the-scenes circumstances may have affected the film’s acceptance by the mainstream? Where the hell is our sequel already?!

You should follow Brian (@Briguysalisbury), Cargill (@Massawyrm) and the show (@Junkfoodcinema).
