    A Wondrously Bizarre 80's, B-Movie Comedy 4 1/2 Oscillation OverThruster Stars

    It is admittedly difficult to give a bizarre, flawed movie like THE ADVENTURES OF BUCKAROO BANZAI ACROSS THE EIGHTH DIMENSION 5 stars. I thought the same thing about Big Trouble In Little China which is another great 80's B-movie that W.D Richter also had a hand in creating. Richter wrote-adapted Big Trouble for John Carpenter's very belated cult hit (sounds familiar).But, W.D Richter Directed and produced BUCKAROO BANZAI; and if you get the Special Edition you should enjoy his interview where he talks like the Banzai Institute is real and "Buckaroo" is real and rather reclusive, etc...(actually in the commentary with Pepe Serna this "inside joke" that Buckaroo and his Hong Kong Cavaliers are "real" gets a little tiresome), but it all makes for a rather bizarre commentary that fits this uniquely funny sci-fi movie that is rather hip in its 'tude anyways.

    John Valuk is dead, he fell on his head

    If you are a fan of Peter Weller or John Lithgow, then this is pretty much required viewing; the performance by Jeff Goldblum was also outstanding. It's somewhat difficult to say what makes this film unique. Is it the quirky ensemble mini music video during the closing credits? Is it the tongue-in-cheek presentation of sci-fi? There have been some forgettable movies attempting to meld science fiction with comedy, but Buckaroo B. is absolutely not forgettable. Remarkably, the film provides more laughs during subsequent viewings, probably because the first viewing results in sheer bewilderment.Flaws: Ellen Barkin did fine in her role, but her character was the antithesis of Princess Leia and unfortunately the Banzai troupe is strictly a boys club. Honestly I can't think of any other flaws at the moment. However, it IS a bad film if you take it seriously, or if subtlety is lost on you.I first saw this as a high school student in the 1980s, and it made an indelible impression... 4/5 Frosty Cold One (Seattle, WA USA) - See all my reviews, February 15, 2013

    A Modern Day Doc Savage

    4/5 Michael Thompson - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: The Adventures Of Buckaroo Banzai (Amazon Video) Many reviews have compared Buckaroo Banzai to Doc Savage, or mentioned a connection, but few have spelled them out. Both are neurosurgeons, scientific geniuses and adventurers. Both travel the world with a band of men, but Buckaroo's men are a musical band. The men in both groups go by colorful nicknames. Both films performed poorly at the box office, and promoted an ambiguous sequel that was never made. However, Buckaroo gets involved with women and uses guns, where Doc does not, nor would Doc promote himself with Rock and Roll and comic books. There are also comparisons to Sherlock Holmes, such as Mrs. Johnson (Mrs. Hudson) and the Blue Blazer Regulars (Baker Street Irregulars). These are loving tributes or Easter Eggs, not rip-offs or satires. There is no other movie quite like Buckaroo Banzai, nor will there ever likely be another.

    A Tale of Two Women

    This is the seventh book in the Gray Man series by Mark Greaney.Now that Court has made peace with the CIA they send him out as a contract agent - but, as usual there are complications piled upon complications - but, that is the life of the Gray Man. Interesting story with plenty of twists and turns.What I found of interest were the stories around the two women that had major places in this book - Court's CIA handler Suzanne Brewer and SVR officer Zoya Zakharova. If one steps back from the action of the plot - one can see this as a tale of the two women - and their differences. Brewer is driven by a thirst for power and advancement within the CIA, while Zoya is driven by the same desire to do the right thing, and love of country, that drives the Gray Man (although the "country" in Zoya's case is Russia).Although there is plenty of shooting and plenty of weapons are used - there does not seem to be the fascination with weapons that we saw... 5/5 W.

    Riveting Chase and Battle Book; Modern Frustration and Futility

    Mark Greaney is a well-experienced writer who knows how to put riveting action plots together! I stayed up late and read this one in a single day. Readers who like stories with subtexts such as friendship, loyalty,patriotism and betrayal will find plenty of each of them beneath the covers of this single book. Readers who like 'modern' fiction where realities such as frustration and futility, even given heroic efforts will find this story both fantastic and believable. Mr. Greaney also has the gift of bringing many settings off the page and into your head: Hong Kong, a gritty triad bar, slick settings for international criminal networks, salty diesel-stinking cargo ships, Vietnamese rice paddys... The combat scenes and battle tactics are grounded and believable, including the part where luck sometimes plays and unexpected role. There are fighters in the field, bureaucrats in offices plotting and pulling strings, patriots and careerists: the whole package.Ace Chinese... 4/5 James Ellsworth (Charlottesville, VA) - See all my reviews, February 28, 2017

    Night School: A Jack Reacher Novel

    (3.9/5)
    Delacorte Press

    Lee Child's new book, "Night School" - a little less of the Jack Reacher we know and love, but still very good.

    I’ve read all 20 Jack Reacher novels, written by Lee Child. I jumped at the chance to evaluate copy of his newest book. You don’t read 20 of anything unless you really like the characters, and “Night School” is no different. Taking place back in the mid-90’s Military Police Major Jack Reacher is reassigned to go back to school – but it isn’t what anyone thinks. It’s really just a cover to investigate a possible act of treason and terrorism. Reacher teams up with his old colleague Sgt. Frances Neagley and a group of new folks representing the FBI, CIA and the national Security Council to find out what is happening and how to stop it. The best part of a mystery is finding out what happens, so I won’t spoil anything, but Jack Reacher does his usual thing and in the end prevails in the usual Reacher fashion. The interaction between Neagley and Reacher, along with the other team members is entertaining.That’s the good... 4/5 N. Caruso (Bloomfield, CT United States) - See all my reviews, July 31, 2016

    Not Your Usual Child

    3/5 essendubya (Bedford, TX) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Night School: A Jack Reacher Novel (Kindle Edition) I've been a Lee Child fan since reading my first Jack Reacher novel, so you can imagine my disappointment when I began Night School and discovered it wasn't the old ex-Army Reacher. Night School is set in the era before Reacher left the Army. The story itself is okay, good even, but not the independent Reacher we've come to know. To be sure, some of the elements are there such as his impeccable logic, but it just doesn't have the same Reacher feel. Does my disappointment mean I'll stop buying Child's novels? No, it just means I'll scrutinize them much closer and won't buy them on a pre-release basis. Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , November 8, 2016

    Reads like a daily travel log

    3/5 D. Isherwood (New Jersey) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: AWOL on the Appalachian Trail (Paperback) I kept waiting for some insight or even a glimpse into what the trip meant to Miller but it really reads like a trip log where he chronicled his daily hike with little to no description of his surroundings or emotions. It was interesting for a while - right up until I realized that every chapter was virtually the same as the last with a (slightly) different list of characters and states. The endless roll of hiker's trail names and the description of the rocks and mud on the trail all ran together by the end. I wasn't looking for another "Wild" but something besides a recounting of the daily mileage, blisters and other hikers would have been nice. It did get me motivated to try a long distance hike (not a thru hike) though. Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , December 3, 2015

    I got this and another AT book, because I wanted to understand the experience of a through hiker as closely as possible, to understand if it's something I want to undertake. I've recently gotten the bug, so to speak, and I just want to know - is this something I could possibly do? I live a pretty sheltered life, and I don't want to minimize this challenge - I want to understand it in depth so that if I do ever undertake it, I will have a good idea of what to expect and hopefully, not flame out.Of course there are a lot of choices of first-person AT through-hike testimonials. I chose this one because I could identify with the author in a couple of ways - my work life is one of corporate / office-centric work that feels restrictive and locked-in, and I am at an age where one might begin to question, do I still have the vigor to take on such a challenge (a bit older than the author was when he started)? Or might I five years from now?I did really enjoy the... 4/5 OneFreeMan (Atlanta, GA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    A strangely compelling read

    4/5 Rob V (North andover, MA USA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: AWOL on the Appalachian Trail (Paperback) Considering that this is basically a shelter-to-shelter, hostel-to-bunkhouse description of one person's hike from Georgia to Maine, I found this a very compelling read. There are no long, lyrical descriptive passages, no flashbacks to personal tragedies and recriminations, no delving into personal character flaws. For this sort of book I would refer you to Cheryl Strayed's "Wild", a much more literary, and highly recommended true story of hiking the Pacific Crest Trail. And yet David Miller's narrative pulled me right along with him, uphill, downhill, rained upon, blistered, and hungry. I am unlikely to follow in his footsteps, but I enjoyed my trip through David's eyes and words. Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , August 11, 2016

    2/5 GP - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Yukon Adventure (Amazon Video) Early on in this documentary he speaks of hot springs creating an oasis in the middle of this winter landscape attracting eagles and bison to come and feed there. Then he speaks of climate change relating to this which I find contradictory because hot springs are created by geothermal activity which is generated beneath the Earths crust and is in no way related to weather events above the surface.

    The Ultimate "Selfie" - Avoid!

    2/5 John Celick (Los Angeles, CA, US) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Yukon Adventure (Amazon Video) The ultimate "selfie," except it is obvious that he isn't alone treking along the Yukon river. I'm very tired of these sort of phony documentaries where somebody is supposed to be bravely going somewhere most of us wouldn't. It is obvious that he had a support team and a photographer shadowing his every move. Then there is the again and again obvious play to being alone and away from his family with periodic attempts to jerk some tears out of us upon the reunion...gag me.This show could have been somewhat redeemed with better pictures of the area, some history, and less focus on the self. That bit where he is very close, dangerously close, to the feeding bears gave me hope that it might be the last feature of this sort he produces. Alas, he survived unlike Steve Irwin.

    Same old wildlife videos

    2/5 Amazon Customer - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Yukon Adventure (Amazon Video) I was interested in this video to learn about the course of the Yukon River. I have visited the Yukon River in some of the places. The video doesn't follow the river and is just a mixture of wildlife videos. Very disappointed. Also the presenter gets too close to the wildlife for no apparent reason. Very bad example to all.
