Gene Lyons probably will never enjoy the flattery of a biopic retelling his life, but "The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension" comes pretty damn close to depicting his life as a eccentric polymath. This 1984 box-office flop was either way ahead of its time or way too much of a mess for any sane person to comprehend.

In this edition of "Shat The Movies," Ash praises the spaceship designs and compares Buckaroo Banzai to Maverick. Big D points out the ridiculous dialogue; and Gene decides he's watching cinematic jazz. The Shat Crew also discusses John Lithgow, John Bigboote, and all the other Johns that make the movie great.
