If you want to play something strange, who you gonna call? Well, if you’re playing LEGO Dimensions, pretty much anyone you want it seems. Fancy a batshit mashup with Doctors Who, Brown and Venkman? Sure! While you’re at it, why not throw in Doctor Harleen Frances Quinzel, MD aka Harley Quinn, for good measure? You may as well drop Marty McFly and The Joker in the street to look on as well.

Toyota is marking the October 21st 2015 Back to the Future date to introduce their new Toyota Mirai Hydrogen powered car. Michael J. Fox and Christopher Lloyd are back together to check out this new ride that basically runs on trash, much like the Mr. Fusion from Back to the Future. Check out the video below. (more…)
Puente Hills Mall in Industry, California was the mall parking lot used in the filming of Back to the Future. Director Robert Zemeckis renamed it Twin Pines Mall and the rest is history. Fans still make pilgrimages to the site, and you can still see black tape (scorch) marks in the parking lot that commemorate the firey path Doc Brown’s DeLoeran took into the past. This month the mall, and many BTTF fans are celebrating the 30th anniversary of the film’s release. Including the signage pictured above. (more…)
For those who are fans of the Back to the Future franchise, next month marks the exact day from Back to the Future Part II when Marty McFly and Doc Brown arrived in 2015. There’s a lot going on to celebrate the occasion around the world, all you have to do is Google “Back to the Future 2015 celebration” and you’ll hit a boatload of celerbations, but I must say that the following teaser trailer provided by Universal Pictures really gets me in the festive spirit.
Call me biased, but THIS is news about an ’80s property that isn’t out to bastardize or rebootmakeimagine the original, and I couldn’t be happier about that. Comic company IDW has announced that, later this year, they will be releasing a Back to the Future comic book series that will focus on the “origin story” of the meeting of the series’ two most major characters, teen-everyman Marty McFly and eccentric inventor Emmett “Doc” Brown.
Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment has kicked off their LEGO Dimensions marketing campaign with a blast from our Nerdy past. That’s right, everyone’s favorite time traveling scientist inventor Doc Brown (Christopher Lloyd) from Back to the Future is smack dab in the middle of the LEGO Dimensions mix. What happens when Doc Brown receives a mysterious glowing box? (more…)
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. It perfectly sets you up for what’s in store and tells a lot about two of the most memorable characters in the history of film. (more…)
Inconceivable! ‘Back to the Future’s Doc Brown Makes a Cameo in Seth MacFarlane’s ‘A Million Ways to Die in the West’
In an unexpected twist, Seth MacFarlane has pulled an incredible cameo for his latest comedy A Million Ways to Die in the West. It would have been easy to just slip in a few famous western actors here and there, but MacFarlane went a step further with a cameo that will warm the nerdiest of hearts. (more…)
I had forgotten that Epic Rap Battles in History was a thing, but then this rap-off between Doc Brown and Doctor Who comes a long… and totally reminds how nerdy (and clever) they can be.
Truth be told, this was the best match-up yet… and prolly the worst actual battle. This rap just didn’t have its usual catchiness compared to the ones in the past.
Regardless, it had it’s moments. The BttF and Whovian humor was obviously written by someone quite familiar with them both. Although, come to think of it, I don’t quite know why they switched from the 10th Doctor to 4th Doctor?
The line “Dalek my balls” played to my scatological/sexual sensibilities. I also thought it was a nice touch that all three doctors have noticeably different rapping styles.
Nerd Art Stock Pile: Rudolph the Red Nosed Tonton, Animated Comic Covers, Doctor Who Bookshelf, Batman Simpsonized and MOAR
The Interwebz is a great place for nerdy art and the like. A lot of the time it’s crazy things like Autobot anal, Star Whores, a bush shaved like the bat signal and shit like that. But there are a lot of awesome things that we see on a daily basis, and we’re lazy nerd bastards so we just round them all up once a week for your nerdgasm glory.
This is what the Empire Strikes Back would have looked like if it was released by stop motion animation pioneers Rankin Bass. Yea, it’s cute now, but that tauntaun is not going to live through the snowstorm.
