Daily Blog Post from Editor Peter Sciretta:

Back to the Future or Star Wars - Which One Do You Save From Being Erased From Existence?

Sometimes in life you need to make hard choices.

And sometimes you have to make hard hypothetical choices about things that could never actually happen.

Over the weekend I was sitting at a late brunch with my girlfriend Kitra and she asked me, "Back to the Future or Star Wars: One of these movies will be erased from existence and never happened, the other one you can save. Which film do you choose to save?" I froze. For those of you who have been following me for any length of time, you know Back to the Future is my favorite movie of all time. And you'd also know that I'm a Star Wars fanatic. So when I was asked this question I just froze.

Great Scott! Indeed, this is one heavy question. How can you possibly choose? Why would I want to live in a world without one of these franchises?

Lets rewind. This conversation started because earlier that morning I watched an interview by my friend Steve at Collider, which involved producer/screenwriter Damon Lindelof playing the game Save or Kill. Lindelof was asked about Star Wars vs. Star Trek and Scorsese vs. Spielberg. His answers are so quick and decisive, which you can tell must come from many years of having to "kill his darlings".

But when I was asked about Back to the Future vs. Star Wars, I found myself unable to even speak — sputters came out of my mouth. I decided to put this sophie's choice-caliber question on Twitter and the responses were split between the George Lucas and Robert Zemeckis classics.

One reader theorized that Back to the Future couldn't exist without Star Wars because of the "Darth Vader from Planet Vulcan" scene.

But in a universe without Star Wars, I'm sure the scene would have just been a Star Trek/Battlestar Galactica mash-up reference.

Another reader theorized that if Back to the Future never came out, Goonies would have gotten more play. I'm not sure I agree with that, as much as I love Goonies, I don't think it could ever be as appreciated as Back to the Future, which is almost a perfect screenplay.

Yet another reader said to save Back to the Future so that I could "create" Star Wars, but I must to remember to keep the merchandise rights like George did. Good call.

After some thought, I came to the conclusion:

I would probably have to save Star Wars.

But why would I save Star Wars over my favorite movie of all time?

My thought is that Star Wars is more than one movie or a trilogy of films. Think about the many films, television shows and video games that have been influenced by George Lucas' creation that may not exist in its absence? Also, Star Wars has a huge legacy that is still expanding and providing me and others with new joy and excitement. And who knows what the future may bring and what would be missed in a universe without Star Wars?

Which one would you choose to save if you could only save one? Let me know in the comments below!

Okay, lets get to today's edition of Page 2.
