Everybody’s got at least one film they can watch over and over again without getting bored. Mine is ‘Back To The Future.’ The concept of time travel has always intrigued me. Making the time machine out of a hot car was just the chilli on the fries. If I had to pinpoint a particular scene in the film that stood out to me the most, I might have to go with the escape sequence back to 1985. But after watching this video, I have come to better appreciate that long crane shot in the open.

Ever since Michael J. Fox made fools of us all and claimed in an ABC network special coinciding with the release of Back to the Future II that scientists were working on developing an actual hoverboard as seen in the film, it’s been difficult for me to trust anyone.

They’re still rolling out a feet-related product, just not one that flies. (more…)
