Back in the 1980s, it seemed like studios were a lot more willing to take risks on projects that’d never get made today. This is especially true when it comes to science fiction, which saw a really inventive and original period throughout the decade. Two of the best examples of this would have to be The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension and the Back to the Future trilogy.
With Buckaroo Banzai turning 35 this August and Back to the Future Part II turning 30, it’s worth pointing out a few instances where the two different sci-fi comedies had some crossover. Whether it was intentional or not, there’s just no denying the similarities at hand here. Not to mention, looking these over definitely makes you want to give each a revisit.
