Back to the Future Day 10/21/2015

Back to the Future Blu-ray

Before even noticing it was going to be a thing, I recently had the chance to sit through all three Back to the Future films. I had the chance to watch it with my girlfriend, who had never seen them before (GREAT SCOTT!). It was a bit of shocker because she is a big fan of sci-fi and especially time travel stories. We ran into it on TV a few weeks ago and she loved the first film, when she saw the commercial for the marathon, I knew we were in for the night.

It was really fun to sit through it again with her, not only because I liked seeing her happy, but it reminded me of when I was enjoying the first film at young age and how epic the trilogy was. What is even more epic is the fact that a lot of the technology in the film is around today. By the time you read this you probably have read about hover boards and video conferencing, so I won't bore you with that again. But, it is pretty cool that the film mostly predicted a lot of technology that is out today.

Although I don't think flying cars should ever be a thing, (and I live in Jersey!) the accidents would be horrendous. Anyway, the point of this is, if you're like my girl, and have never seen it or feel the need to see all three films, this week would be a good week to sit through it again, or for the first time. If not, pick up the 30th Anniversary Edition Blu-ray (click the above image), or just catch it on TV as I'm sure its on right now.
