No time to write more than this today!!!!! Happy 25th Buckaroo! Aug. 10th, 1984
Your title says “10th Anniversary”.
In the 8th dimension, it can be two anniversaries at once
In the 8th dimension, no one can hear you age. 🙂
thanks for the type-o correct
Not to keen on that poster art !! Great film though !!!
25 years later and we STILL don’t know why that watermelon was there! It wasn’t explained in the book either. One of the world’s great unsolved mysteries.
wow, it’s been that long ago. Great flick, too bad there weren’t any followups.
John Bigboote, John YaYA, John Smallberries and John Whorfin…
Buckaroo is a classic.
Huh? 25 years? Wha hop-pened…?
Laugh-a while you can, Monkey-Boy!
No matter where you go…
Ten years later you’ll still have been there.
Woot! Cult Classic Goodness 😀
This is one of my all time favorite movies. It was the first DVD I bought after my wife and I purchased our DVD player. If you have the DVD, make sure you watch the film at least once with the audio commentary turned on. Writer Earl Mac Rauch and director WD Richter go through the entire commentary speaking as if Buckaroo and all the other characters are real people, and the movie is just a dramatization of one of their adventures. They discuss whether or not Peter Weller actually looks like Buckaroo Banzai, and which scenes were taken from true events and which were “fictionalized” for the film. It’s probably the most unique audio commentary ever for a DVD and it’s a hoot. I highly recommend checking it out.
25th Anniversary screening of “The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai: Across the 8th Dimension!” at the Laurelhurst
Theater in Portland, OR. Saturday, Aug. 15th at 9:30 pm. Come and enjoy! laurelhursttheater.com
Thanks for that note! Now to see if the wife can endure it (as well as multiple other people saying the lines at the same time…)
I have always loved this movie ever since I saw a screening of it so long ago. I bought the dvd when it first came out. Good memories. Thanks.
History is made at night. Character is what you are in the dark!
I clearly remember my first words coming out of the theater:
Great movie! What happened?!?
Gah! I still need to see this movie! :: hangs head in shame ::
I saw it for the first time about three months ago because I just had to see what all of Doug’s hype was about! Strange but fun flick. 🙂
There are some followups finally, thanks to the good people at Moonstone Books. While I’d still love to have seen a proper sequel, reading comics with stories by BB’s creator, Earl Mac Rauch, is a great consolation prize.
That poster is so awful!!!! That doesn’t even look like John Lithgow! Ugh!
p.s. I just noticed that Buckaroo Banzai is playing on IFC tonight at 12:25am….
Hey, is that a Vorcha busting through that wall?
