THE ADVENTURES OF BUCKAROO BANZAI ACROSS THE 8TH DIMENSION (Theatrical Release USA 1984)


Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.5|5.0 Starsììì

The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai across the 8th Dimension breaks the speed record in its wild and crazy ride through the lands of weird and unclear. Read a plotline before you go to understand what the story is going to deliver. The movie will, undoubtedly become a cult classic if for no other reason than its outlandish title.

Storyline

Buckaroo Banzai works to keep 8th dimension aliens from doing harm to earth.

Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe?

Maybe. Interesting due to its unorthodox delivery, the film may deserve a watch just for its complete disconnect to anything familiar.
