Thanks to Photoshop, there’s always a funny debate about the times and dates Marty McFly travels to in the Back to the Future trilogy. No matter what you may read though, the first film starts on October 25 1985. That makes today the 28th anniversary and to commemorate the occasion, a bunch of fans are recreating the chronology of the film, in real time, on Twitter, under the name The Hill Valley Project.
As the story is now at the point where band auditions take place on the 25th, there’s currently a down time between dinner at the McFly’s and Marty waking up to go to Twin Pines Mall in the morning. So the event is currently in a break, but it should pick up again soon. To follow the event, which is comprised of 49 different Twitter accounts, visit this link.

Los Angeles residents are incredibly spoiled when it comes to pop culture art events. Most of that is because Jensen Karp and Katie Cromwell opened not one but two Gallery 1988 locations in the City of Angels. Every few weeks, a new art exhibit goes on the walls celebrating either an artist or subject, usually with a pop culture theme. Lost, Breaking Bad, Edgar Wright, Judd Apatow, the list of awesome Gallery 1988 subjects goes on and on. If you don’t live in Los Angeles, usually you can’t experience these for yourself.
That’s why, in 2011, Cromwell and Karp released a beautiful coffee table book called Crazy 4 Cult, based on the Gallery’s signature exhibit. Next week, they’re releasing the sequel, Crazy 4 Cult 2, and we got Karp to exclusively explain some of his favorite images in the book. They’re based on Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, Shaun of the Dead, Rushmore, Pee Wee’s Big Adventure, Donnie Darko, Willy Wonka, Coming to America, Back to the Future and Wet Hot American Summer.

Purchasing the Back to the Future Delorean Lego earlier this month made me feel 12 years old again. All of a sudden, I want to buy all these Legos. It’s not a good thing. Especially when Lego is more than happy to release an increasing number of awesome sets.
On the official front, the company recently announced that 2014 will bring a special set based on the hit TV show, The Simpsons. On the unofficial front, two very cool projects are up for consideration on Lego Cuusoo: the Hill Valley Courthouse from Back to the Future and the gate to Jurassic Park. See some images below.

Robert Zemeckis‘ classic 1985 film Back to the Future is almost 30 years old. That is, the same amount of time that passed in the time travel period in the movie, from 1955 to 1985. To make the jump believable, makeup was used to add thirty years to actors like Lea Thompson, Crispin Glover and Thomas Wilson as they played their characters in 1985.
Now, since nearly thirty actual years have passed since the film’s release, we can finally see how well the makeup department did. Do Thompson, Glover and Wilson look younger or older in reality than their fictional older versions in the film? Check out the photo below. Read More »

Back to the Future is one of those films we all have, and continue to make, great memories about. Whether it’s the first time we saw the film, a piece of merchandise we own, a new wrinkle about its production, on an almost weekly basis Robert Zemeckis and Bob Gale‘s 1985 masterpiece keeps reminding us of its cultural significance.
The film will be 30 years old in 2015 and Jason Aron has just created a Kickstarter to finish a movie celebrating that fact. It’s called Back in Time and it’ll explore the cultural significance of Back to the Future in a very unique way. It’ll use the Delorean automobile as the through line. Check out the trailer below.
