So, Is 2015 Anything Like What 'Back To The Future' Predicted?


Michael J Fox Christopher Lloyd

Back in 1989, Marty McFly and Doc Brown made some bold predictions about how the future might look in 2015. In the hit film, starring Michael J Fox and Christopher Lloyd, the pair travelled to our current year to prevent Marty's future son from ending up in jail. But now as we begin to settle into the New Year it’s time to investigate, just how much did Back to the Future Part II get right about life in 2015?

Back to the FutureBack to the Future, an accurate representation of modern life?

Well surprisingly the film did manage to get a few things right about life in 2015. While the movie’s predictions might not have been 100% accurate, there’s still enough there that nearly hit the mark. One of the best examples is the film’s depiction of video calls, something which is now a reality for everyone, thanks to programs such as Skype and Face Time.

His investigations lead him to the mysterious Judge Doom who's own nature in the toon community is formidable with having found a way to destroy them.

Piranha 3DD Review


Unbearable
After the guilty-pleasure success of 2010's Piranha 3D, the quickly slapped-together trailer for this sequel looked like just as much fun. Sadly, more time and creativity was put into that teaser than the finished movie, which is a choppy, unfunny mess.

Maddy (Panabaker) is back home in Arizona from grad school, working in the water park she owns with her breast-obsessed stepdad Chet (Koechner). But after the Lake Victoria disaster, prehistoric piranhas have migrated here, drawn to the park's chlorine. After consulting with wild-haired expert Goodman (Lloyd), Maddy tries to avert disaster with the help of deputy Kyle (Zylka) and nice-guy Barry (Bush), who are rivals for her affections. But as the summer launch party nears, Chet refuses to close the park.

Piranha 3D Review


Good
A blast of black humour, much of it referring to other films, makes this riotously violent remake rather a lot of fun. And apart from the gleefully grisly 3D effects, the casting alone is a stroke of genius.

Arizona's Lake Victoria is being invaded by virtually naked young people during spring break, but teen Jake (McQueen) has to babysit his young siblings (Brooklynn Proulx and Sage Ryan) because his mother Julie (Shue) is especially busy as the town sheriff. As a sleazy filmmaker (O'Connell) hires Jake to show him the lake, Julie is investigating evidence that an underwater rift has released a school of voracious prehistoric piranhas. So not only must she get all of these drunken revellers out of the water, but she needs to make sure her kids are safe.

Fly Me to the Moon Review


Terrible
Of all the creatures in the animal kingdom capable of carrying a family film, the fly would be pretty low on the scale. Nothing against the garbage-picking pest, but Jeff Goldblum and David Cronenberg more or less ruined their run as anthropomorphized amusement. It's safe to say that not even a perfectly executing Pixar could salvage the meandering of Fly Me to the Moon. This 3D CGI effort about Apollo 11 -- and three young bugs who decided to hitch a rocket ride -- is so out of joint and jingoistic that you're not sure whether to stand and salute or simply hold your nose.

An intrepid trio of flies -- the corpulent Scooter, brainy IQ, and daring daydreamer Nat -- have longed to be part of some real life adventure. Spurred on by Nat's daredevil Grandpa (Christopher Lloyd) who claims to have accompanied Amelia Earhart on her Trans-Atlantic flight, they decide to stowaway on the upcoming Moon Mission. When the Russian flies find out that there are American insects onboard, they send operative Yegor (Tim Curry) to sabotage the flight. It will be a race between freedom and the forces of evil to ensure the USA places the first men -- and pests -- on the lunar surface.

To Be or Not to Be (1983) Review


OK
Over a decade after Mel Brooks envisioned a Nazi musical in The Producers, he got his chance to make one for real, in the remake of Ernst Lubitsch's 1942 film To Be or Not to Be. The movie itself is kind of a dud (Polish actor makes do during the Nazi invasion, impersonates the Germans to get out of trouble), but listen for the dirge theme, which was stolen e-x-a-c-t-l-y from the ominous tune periodically underlying Raiders of the Lost Ark. Listen for yourself!

Anastasia (1997) Review


OK
20th Century Fox tried to break the Disney stranglehold on kiddie animation with a retelling of the tragic story of Anastasia, the lost daughter of the Russian czar who some believed survived the family's assassination. I'm not sure there was this much singing in Mother Russia, but the film isn't overly wretched. Still, the Disney formula is aped to perfection here, even spawning a solo career for singing bat Bartok, in Bartok the Magnificent. Protect your children.

Back To The Future Review


Extraordinary
A classic adventure that holds up perfectly today aside from a few green-screen gaffes, Back to the Future is a quintessential '80s flick that combines science fiction, action, comedy, and romance all into a perfect little package that kids and adults will both devour. I know I did when I saw this film as a teenager, anxiously wishing I could zip back in time too to stand up to a bully, right some wrongs, and otherwise fix the mistakes that I made... never mind my parents. Michael J. Fox is perfect in the lead role (though the film was original half-shot with Eric Stoltz in the lead), but Christopher Lloyd ("Damn! Damn damn!") steals the show as Doc Brown, whose Delorean time machine enables all the madcap adventures that follow. Overall it's about as perfect as a summer blockbuster amusement can get. Check out the DVD set of all three Back to the Future movies, a huge bargain at under 20 bucks.

Back To The Future Part III Review


Good
Ah, this is the one you see on cable TV all the time. I'm not sure why, but I suppose it's because Back to the Future Part III holds up on its own as well as the original and much better than Part II, which kind of abruptly ends in the middle of the story. This is the old west part of the tale, which begins when Doc Brown (Christopher Lloyd) is inadvertently sucked back to 1885, and through a convolution of events, Marty (Michael J. Fox) heads back there as well to save Doc's life. Eventually there's another problem preventing the duo from returning to 1985: There's no gasoline for the Delorean in 1885 and they can't get the car up to the required 88 miles per hour. Whoops. Overall this is a good time, but the steampunk adventure doesn't thrill us quite as much as the original, which features a very similar arc. By now, old Biff (here as "Buford") has worn thin and comes off as primarily an excuse to add more conflict, and Mary Steenburgen's abrupt love interest is a no-show.
