    Every bit as insane, terrible and great as the title suggests.

    Funny, stupid, cool, little weird, Sci-Fi comedy/parody with silly special effects and great actors - Peter Weller, John Lithgow, Jeff Goldblum...
    I gotta say I expected more, but it's ok.

    The cast is as unbelievable as the script! I don't know if I have stumbled upon a film remotely similar to this one, so unique in its weirdness and so naive in its pretension.

    Takes itself seriously enough to not be too over the top.

    Boasting a title so long you’re apt to doze off simply reading it, “The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the Eighth Dimension” is a hodgepodge homage whose chances of hooking the hoi polloi were somehow less than hopeless.

    “Buckaroo” purported to zip along on the zappy, manic energy “Ghostbusters” showed earlier in the summer of 1984. (“Buckaroo” bailed on an original release of June 8 — a date on which, astoundingly, both “Ghostbusters” and “Gremlins” opened in a rare same-week…

    I can see why this is a cult film but to me it has the feeling of a kid telling you a story and making it up as they go along. "So there is this guy, and his name is Buckaroo Banzai and he is a surgeon and he drives a rocket car that goes through a mountain and oh AND he is in the best rock group ever where a guy plays two saxophones annnnnd... his friend is Jeff Goldblum..."

    Got my new Umbrella Entertainment Blu-ray is the mail today. Movie has a nice bit rate and looks pretty good, lossless sound is as expected for a movie of its age and it's a region A/B disc. Good, good and good. It has all of the original MGM DVD special features, but they're in PAL so the PS3 had a slight fit when I tried to play them. Queue Price Is Right losing horn.

    Shortly after this was ordered it…

    Needs some major tightening up in the editing/pacing department (something about the frantic-yet-unfocused second half puts me to sleep every time), but it's got spirit, imagination, and creativity to spare, not to mention a fantastic cast.

    Also, possibly the most endearing closing credits sequence ever.
