I had forgotten how good this was!
What a great way to start the New Year! I just watched this flick for the first time in ages and remember now why I agree that it is a “cult classic”!
Made in 1984 way before most of the actors achieved real star status, this movie has so many “inside” references and jokes, it’s a wonder that more isn’t made of it! And if you are a real Star Trek fan, you will know that Yoyodyne Propulsion is on the commissioning plaque for the Enterprise as well as other Star Fleet vessels. The references to Grover’s Mill and Orson Wells along with the whole deadpan tone of the film makes this an unbelievably funny experience. I only wish that “Buckaroo Banzai versus The World Crime League” had been produced.
Peter Weller, Jeff Goldblum, John Lithgow, Ellen Barkin, Dan Hedaya, the entire cast must have had a great time making this movie. It is full of technojargon, double speak and just plain funny stuff that pokes fun at every bad B-movie scifi thriller/comic book/Saturday serial ever made. There is no bad language and no skin and lots to hear and see in this great movie!
It has one redeeming quality above all else for me… it makes the effects on Mighty Morphin Power Rangers and all of those other poor 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 stuff and make a cool, funny scifi flick, they need look no further that “The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the Eight Dimension”!
Cult movie or seminal?
There are, and always will be, differences of opinion about every movie. After reading the existing comments on this one I decided that one of the things causing those differences is the question of how many movies you’ve seen. I grew up in the 40s of the last century so I’ve seen an awful lot of movies. Maybe for that reason or maybe just because I’m a wacko, I tend to judge every movie at least partly for its relation to all the other movies I’ve seen.
Take “Buckaroo,” for example. It came out in 1984 containing some elements suggested by “Dr. Strangelove” (1964) and “Superman II” (1980).On the other hand, its driving force shows up again in “Men In Black” (1997). “Sneakers” (1992) shamelessly copies one of its principal sets, the background of one of the characters, its technological McGuffin and one scene right down to the dialog. One line by John Bigboote is hilariously adapted in every single episode of the BBC comedy series “Keeping Up Appearances.” Top that, “Citizen Kane!”
