    The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension

    ★★

    The heroic Buckaroo Banzai - a world famous neurosurgeon, rock n roll star, adventurer and all around awesome dude - has to save Earth from destruction by inter-dimensional aliens in this utterly bizarre cult sci-fi/action comedy.
    The last time I saw "B.B." was in the late '80s and I remembered next to nothing about it except for a vague feeling that it didn't make much sense. Re-visiting it today... it still doesn't.
    "Buckaroo" has a great cast incl. Peter "RoboCop"…

    Justice League Dark

    ★★½

    A series of violent deaths around the world seem to be caused by magic, so Batman enlists some of the DC universe's supernatural anti-heroes like John Constantine, Zatanna, The Demon, Deadman, and Swamp Thing to help solve the mystery. The usual blasting, zapping and ultra-violence ensues.
    Nicely animated as usual, and it's nice to see some different characters getting to play in one of these DC 'toon movies for a change, instead of the usual Superman/Batman/Wonder Woman triad.

    Awkward looking CGI toon with the famed cat accidentally stumbling out of the comic pages and into the "real" world, then trying to find his way back "home." The tone is shrill, the animation sucks and its loaded with annoyingly unfunny new characters. My 7 year old thought it was funny but sitting thru this one will be a chore for anyone older than that.

    The Fantastic Four

    ★★

    Roger Corman's ultra-cheap film version of the Marvel Comics series follows Reed, Johnny, Ben and Sue as they gain their super powers during a failed space mission, then battle the evil Doctor Doom and a subterranean villain called "The Jeweler."

    This flick was made on a shoestring budget and then was shelved permanently, merely so that the producers could maintain their film rights to the FF property. It's never been officially released and I've been wanting to see it for…
