How do people get paid for writing bullshiat about movies? Because I would be great at it.

Spielberg manages to seamlessly blend the obtuse world of advanced scientific theory with the familiar comfort of school and teenage angst

Spielberg didn't write or direct the film, he was a producer.

After freshman year of college, I worked in a movie theater for the summer. It was one of the old school huge, single screen theaters (Fairfax Circle in NoVA).

The *entire* summer, BttF played. There were lines and packed house the whole time. At one point in my life, I could recite the entire movie.

Haven't seen it since.

Steven Spielberg's Back to the Future was the highest grossing film in the year of its release.

Article sucks, right from paragraph number 1. No point in reading any further.

And the title "Back To The Future" makes perfect sense because Marty accidentally travels through time and wants to go, well, back to the future.

The writers' idea was that if a modern teen traveled to the past, they'd hate it because lots of things would be different than what they're accustomed to and would want to get back to their own time.

I believe the writer saw an old yearbook from his dad's HS days and idly wondered if they would have been friends. And apparently, somewhere deep down, idly wondered if he would have wanted to fark his mom.

We can only guess what she did while he was unconscious, but you don't tell someone "quick, put your pants back on" unless they're expected to still be wearing pants.

I remember the first time I saw this it was a VHS recording of a showing on the BBC that edited all the swears out. Holy shiat was Holy Jeez. Assholes became jerks or bastards (a lesser curse). It wasn't until I imported the Aussie DVD release (3 months before the UK release) did I realise how mush of a potty-mouth Marty was

Surely if you're dissecting it, it's already dead? Cutting up a living frog would be vivisection.

The documentary "Back in Time" is on Hulu and is absolutely incredible...they really get into all aspects of the film and the fan base that has arisen around it. Highest recommendation.

You got me curious enough to look up the girl I went to that movie with. She's back to her maiden name... so single?
 
2020-07-03 7:13:23 PM  
I forget their wording but I liked The Rewatchables talking about Claudia Wells being a top draft pick. Not Wells' fault that life unfortunately intervened but yeah, couldn't blame a GM for using a top five pick or a financial advisor telling a client to buy all the Wells stock they could safely afford.

Going through photos of her and sure, she is purdy and everything but stills don't do her justice. She isn't like some true knockout but some people just seem while better in motion than in pics.

ZAZ: You got me curious enough to look up the girl I went to that movie with. She's back to her maiden name... so single?


Straight-up: you have the perfect excuse, don't kick yourself later for not trying.

"So I saw something about this being the 35th anniversary of Back to the Future and I remembered that we went to see it together. I'm just sitting here and laughing at the good times we had together, figured I'd send something your way. No rush but just let me know how you're doing sometime, I hope all is well with you and yours."

Feel free to throw an unsolicited dick pic in there, ladies absolutely love that. They'll deny it, almost always, but that really means they're simply being shy so send more to seal the deal.

If it's possible, send them a dick pic of your father so they know what to look forward to...

Sorry but I think with Mulaney's delivery it could have been just as funny as "So this kid Marty goes back in time, meets his mom when she was a teenager, and she tries to BANG him!" and it would have been accurate to boot.

Because you insist on reporting the facts.  That's why you can't be great at this.  You can't be a part of the illusion.
