The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension

Buckaroo Banzai

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). Download Episode #19 Directly

It’s a thin week when it comes to DVD releases, so we’re reaching into the vault (which is like reaching into the back of the refrigerator for that last glorious beer). Because we have The Watch coming at the end of the week, we’ll be taking a look at a very different alien invasion comedy: The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension. Not everyone understands the awesomeness that comes in this adventure of the swashbuckling genius neurosurgeon, physicist and rock star that is Buckaroo Banzai. It was ahead of its time when it was released in 1984, and few people understood it back than. But who knows. With some alcohol in your system, you might just understand it a little bit more (or at least think you do).
