    ¡Qué boneeeeetooooo! Esto está como salido de la imaginación de un niño de 8 años.

    Debo buscarla con subtítulos porque no le entendí a varios diálogos, pero estoy casi seguro de que eran puro gibberish científico. Aún así la película no pierde nada. No puedes perder cuando tu protagonista es una estrella de rock/neurocirujano/héroe de cómics/científico loco combatiendo contra alienígenas y uno de sus secuaces es Jeff Goldblum vestido de vaquero y otro se llama Perfect Tommy.

    Quizá lo mejor…

    I love this movie. I want to turn it into a tv show.

    It is so out there -- but fully committed to being out there. Pulpy, sci-fi complete with watermelons stuck between presses. And boy, does it move. It never lets up in plot or action. All leading to the coolest end walk to music until Reservoir Dogs.

    Amusing but not the cult classic it appears to be.

    Una de las pelis más extrañas que verás en tu vida. La única explicación que me parecería lógica sería que en realidad lo de Buckaroo Banzai fue una trilogía que se rodó del tirón y que después, en pleno proceso de montaje, sufrió la desaparición de tres cuartas partes de material bruto en extrañas circunstancias.
    Narrar en unas líneas todos los acontecimientos personales de la vida del héroe sólo era, en efecto, el principio.
    Tan disfrutable como una fiesta loca…

    Que el fet desencadenant de 'The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across The 8th Dimension' sigui que la invasió alienígena que Orson Welles va retransmetre radiofònicament el 1938 no vas ser falsa, sinó l'inici del pas d'una facció militar exiliada i condemada del Planeta 10 a través de la 8ena dimensió, i que el mateix Welles no recorda degut a que els mateixos aliens el van hipnotitzar, és, senzillament, un argument magnífic, un homenatge grandiós, i una història que els de Bruguera haurien aplaudit amb les orelles. Com jo, vaja.

    Very silly adults, acknowledging the inspiration of Silver Age comics. Specifically--the building blocks of absurdity, fun with alliteration/neologisms/dumb misspellings, and the palpable connection felt through the kid surrogates, the "honorary members" who got to help and hang out with superheroes. Buckaroo's greatness as seen through Perfect Tommy's faith in Mr. Wizard: not nostalgia, not even comics for adults--but the child-at-seven axiom at work, the inspiration as undeterrable foundation, an early version of Grant Morrison's comprehension of history. It allows the…

    This needs a rewatch. Jeff Goldblum, Christopher Lloyd, John Lithgow and Peter Weller as a neurosurgeon/particle physicist/musician. Even the synopsis is convoluted.

    "Slow this sucker down. I'll handle these birds"...and many other quotables.

    I didn't really know what to expect from this. I like what I got though. The '80s may be the most outdated period in pop culture but the film benefits from the 80'sness: The synth score, the costumes, the young Jeff Goldblum, the 'cheap' special effects, the...the...
    In Buckaroo Banzai you've got one hell of a Renaissance man and all the other characters rock, too. What I love about…

    This didn't take for me the first time I gave it a shot in the early 00's, but I at least to some degree am on board now. Lithgow is what makes the whole movie for me, with Weller's titular protagonist not really all that interesting. There's enough charm in the production and score to merit another rematch down the road.

    Wow.... a movie that's as old as I am!! Made in my birth-year of 1984, The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension is a movie that I knew very little about... to be totally honest, the title itself comes across as if the movie were a Manga or some other Japanese inspired piece of film... I was expecting an animation of some sort when I put this to record off TV. I read a brief synopsis of it…
