Somehow it’s still hard to fathom that Back to the Future Part II was set three years ago. For children of the ’80s and ’90s, the Robert Zemeckis sequel was the most popular and recognized vision of a future we might see when 2015 finally arrived. And while some of the technology imagined for the film never got made,…
We rarely think about the role food plays in our favorite TV shows or movies, but damned if it hasn’t been crucial. But what would Ghostbusters be without Twinkies? Twin Peaks without pie? Goonies without Baby Ruth? Pixar without Pizza Planet? One artist has decided to celebrate this crucial link in a very unique way.
The number one question I get asked about Mr. Robot isn’t “do you think Tyrell Wellick is dead?” or “What is Phase 2?” It’s “should I catch up, or just wait until it’s on Netflix?” This episode provides that answer in an hour of drama that shifts between reality and dream with every thrum of the background music.
Back to the Future fans know that Tom Wilson is the white whale of the franchise. Wilson played Biff, in multiple versions over three movies, but prefers not to talk about it or participate in any Back to the Future events. Instead, he channels his experiences into other outlets, including a new, pretty surprising one.
So far for Senior Week, we’ve already well established that I’m a freak. Cold Han Solo, waiting in lines for hours, but this is where I go over the edge. The fact that, as a compulsive poster collector, I have more posters in my flat file than I have on my walls. So I figured it was time to give some of those posters…
When people talk about the best, most perfect movies ever made, we all know the usual suspects: Citizen Kane, Chinatown, Casablanca. And I feel like Back to the Future should absolutely be on that list. The way this film is structured and feeds story to the audience is so seamless, it’s basically a clinic in how to…
We’re only a few days away from the day Marty and Doc arrived in 2015 and things are about to get very Back to the Future. Online, in stores, basically everywhere, fans will soon be celebrating the great film series.
Are you ready for October 21, 2015? That’s the date that Marty McFly arrives in the future — at least according to the second Back to the Future movie. But if you’re planning on watching the trilogy to celebrate, you’ll only have one streaming option: Amazon Prime.
It’s a huge year in the history of Back to the Future. It’s the 30th anniversary of the film’s 1985 release, as well as the year Marty McFly and Doc Brown travel to in Part II. That latter date, October 21, 2015, is fast approaching, and if you’re a fan of the franchise, there are some very cool events planned.
With Marty McFly’s arrival in 2015 fast approaching, things are sure to get very Back to the Future everywhere you look. That includes the Internet, where franchise co-creator, co-writer and producer Bob Gale has revealed has jaw-dropping and jealousy-inducing collection of props.
Back in January, Nike announced that it would release the self-lacing shoes from Back to the Future Part II by the end of the year. Well, it’s August already, and we’d just like to kindly remind Nike that the clock is ticking. No pressure.
One of the many things that makes the Back to the Future trilogy great is how tight the story is. There’s a beginning, middle, end and though the story weaves in and out of those moments, it’s incredibly self-contained. Which is why the idea of a Back to the Future comic book sounds so weird.
Back to the Future is one of those series I buy on every medium. I had the VHS, the DVD Box set and then the Blu-ray box set. We’re now coming up on the 30th anniversary and I might have to dip in again, because Universal just announced three special anniversary Blu-ray sets with a ton of bells and whistles.
Is the hoverboard just over the horizon? Not quite. But you’d be forgiven for thinking otherwise!
According to futurists of the 20th century, food of the future was supposed to be calorie-dense, inexpensive, and ready in a flash. And in many ways that future has arrived. But we're still waiting on one high-tech food prediction from the 1980s: The rehydrated pizza of the film Back to the Future: Part II.
2015 is both the 30th anniversary of Back to the Future and the year that Marty McFly traveled to in Back to the Future Part II. Which means that a lot of this year will be devoted to questions about whether or not the film's predictions have come true. Questions made easier by this new glut of concept art to go with…
Did you ever dream of having Marty McFly's Nike powerlace shoes from Back to the Future Part II? Well, if all goes according to plan you might get your chance to own a pair. Nike reportedly has plans to release some version of the MAG shoes sometime this year. But they're not saying precisely when.
People are understandably really excited about the latest hoverboard currently being crowdfunded at Kickstarter. It's called the Hendo and it's being developed by Greg and Jill Henderson for their company Arx Pax. Is it real? Yes. Has our Back to the Future hoverboard finally arrived? Sadly, no.
For those who simply can't hold out for power laces, the Halloween costume version of Marty McFly's Nikes from Back to the Future Part II are quite convincing. And unlike the limited-edition Air Mags that Nike produced in 2011, which are going for bajillions of dollars on eBay, these can be yours for only $99.
Back to the Future director Robert Zemeckis is a great fan of that alternate reality holiday classic It's a Wonderful Life, and he's never made a secret of the fact that the Biff-ruled Hill Valley of Back to the Future Part II is an homage to the neon-filled Pottersville George Bailey travels through. This video,…
