The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension Podcast

Retroist Podcast – Episode 200 – The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension

On today show I talk about the film classic, The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension. I start off talking about how lucky I was to see the movie as a kid and then how difficult it was trying to convince everyone that the movie was amazing when I none of them could ever see it. Then I talk about the movies itself. First I mention one of the biggest inspirations for the film, Doc Savage. After that I discuss the people in front of and behind the camera, the plot, the music, the film’s reception and much more.

This is my 200th episode and I want to thank everyone who keeps listening to the show. Your continued interest helps make this a lot more enjoyable to do.
