Buckaroo Banzai






The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension is currently available to stream on Hulu. I haven't watched it in years, so I gave it a viewing over the weekend...only to promptly remember why it had been years since I've seen it.

I know this film has a cult following and I know a lot of geeks love it but I just don't get it. I really do not understand it at all. In fact, not only do I not get it, but I think it might be one of the few movies that I actively dislike. The film has a great cast and promises to be the adventures of this 80's-version of Doc Savage where the Man of Bronze and his Fabulous Five fight aliens when they're not rocking out in a band. Instead, the film delivers something dull, boring, frustrating, and all-together unfunny.

Honestly, it's probably also one of the few movies I wish they would actually remake. Or that they'd just hand the property over entirely to someone else.
