    In many ways, it's
    The prototype for what should
    Be comic book films.

    In the show Steven Universe, Steven is obsessed with fry-bits, the crispy little ends of fries that are left in the fryer after all of the french fries have been taken out and eaten.

    It's amazing.

    This is such a feel-good, perfectly realized, distinctly envisioned movie that I am legitimately depressed there were never any sequels. I guess I'm glad that every single member of the cast went on to greater fame, though.

    The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai is not only an 80s cult classic that I would've adored growing up, it's an 80s cult classic I had no idea existed. That's how cult it is. When I heard Arrow Video were releasing it, the outlandish title sounded vaguely familiar to me. Then I read the cast list. Holy shit. Some of my favourite actors are all assembled here in a totally batshit crazy film that goes in all directions at the same…

    Review In A Nutshell:

    "Buckaroo Banzai" is a film that blends many of its desired genres, creating an atmosphere that many of us would now refer to as "very 80s". It pushes its absurdity to a point that is deeply unapologetic, a film that places its thoughtful intentions through deepened layering, to the point that it may not be even apparent in multiple viewings. Its primary motivation however is to entertain, and within that perspective, this is where the film…

    Perhaps the worst thing I've subjected myself to purely for Jeff Goldblum.

    "Richter's film is... enjoyable, often thanks to its comprehensively strong cast... Weller too is superb in the lead, carrying off the polymath protagonist with the right combination of machismo, intelligence and effortless cool.
