Welcome to the future
« on: October 21, 2015, 05:11:45 am »
-Chicago Cubs have finally made the playoffs again, something that no one thought that would ever happen again in the last 30 years.

-There is now a baseball team in Florida and it recently renamed itself to Miami Marlins.

-We now have Skype/Hangouts video conferencing

-We now have flat-panel TVs mounted on walls.

-We now have the Kinect.

-We now have Google Glass

-We now have tablets

-3D movies and sequels are now mainstream

-Drones are becoming more and more commons

-Many downtown districts that became run down hoods in the 70-80's are now revived and growing again. And in St-Roch district we even a retro arcade!

-We got a few robots, although most seems to be in Japan

-And we even have hoverboards, although very rare and most only works on conductive surfaces like metal.


Welcome to the future of 2015. October 21st 2015 is the date in which Marty McFly and Doc Brown traveled from 1985 to the future. However, it was an alternate future in which flying cars, self-lacing shoes, self-drying vests and the aforementioned hoverboards were mainstream. Also no, the Cubs didn't win the World series. Oh and as far as I know, fax machines and laserdiscs were last commonly used decades ago. :P

Anyway, I was wondering, since most of you guys were born several years after it was released: Have you watched Back to the Future trilogy? Because if you didn't, then it's a must, since it's a classic, and now that the real 2015 has arrived it's fun to look back at their 1989 depiction of 2015. :)

Also the first movie celebrated its 30th anniversary some time this year.

I would have done so, but I had a news to write and I already watched them twice a few months ago anyway. I'll probably watch them again soon, though. They played all three at the Quebec City movie festival last Summer.

The best is the first by far. I don't know why, but it always seemed to be the one I watched the most overall. But the other two are a must too.

Yes I have watched and enjoyed the first two parts. :)
I was actually aware of that day and kept track of time until the future officially began here in Germany too ;)

So welcome to the future!

I've head that the third movie sucked for some reason. I still plan on watching it but yeah.

Does someone know, what timezone the display actually uses? Because as a scientist like Doc Brown I'd actually prefer UTC.

It's more likely to be the local time zone since it's only a time machine, not a spatial travel machine.

It's actually good but not as much. I think it is because it's different. For example it's a western movie rather than your conventional action movie and it seemed more rushed overall.

The second one was great, I loved the time travel shenanigans.
The third one was fun, but it didn't have the same impact as the first two.

There was a film festival in my town about a month ago, they installed a big screen in a popular public place in the town and they put the 3 movies there in 3 consecutive nights, that was pretty fun. The host put some Marty clothes on and a fan even brought his 1:1 replica of the DeLorean as shown in the movies. Well, that was pretty fun.

Of course the movies were pretty good, they're classics now, I liked how the second one went back to the first one, but yeah the third one didn't got the same impact, probably because it didn't went back to the other movies.

I have seen all three multiple times, and the first is the best entry in the series. I think it is worth watching the entire trilogy, though.
Did you know that the original plan for Part II was for Biff to go back to the 1960s, when he actually would have been old enough to gamble?
