The Future is NOW!: Happy Back to the Future Day!

Hey everyone. I know I have been terribly behind in my Horrorfest posting. The problem is that lately I have had a LOT going on, and trying to juggle means something usually falls behind. I promise that I WILL catch up and have those 31 posts completed!

I also decided that instead of working on Horrorfest or things for work, I would instead go to the Back to the Future trilogy showing at my local theater.

Backtothefuture

Well, not just decided. I had my tickets purchased months ago. It’s my absolute favorite movie so I had to see it!

Back to the future

For as long as I can remember, one of my dreams has been to see Back to the Future on the big screen. I am incandescently happy that I have achieved this and I am telling you, I will be riding this happiness high for a long time. It’s like I don’t even care what the rest of the year holds, my day was completely made this night.

Idon'tcareanymoreDeanWinchesterSupernatural

So Back to the Future was as awesome as always. Michel J. Fox was utter perfection, perfection that was beautifully magnified on the big screen.

Back to the future hey mcfly marty mcfly

And then to only increase the awesomeness, before they showed Back to the Future: Part II they had a fake ad for Hoverboards, and a teaser trailer for Jaws 19.

I have to say too, that when watching Back to the Future: Part II, there was actually quite a lot that is similar to our times today. Not everything, but quite a lot. The architecture of the new courthouse had the classic columns, but if you look at it closely it has a lot of glass, being similar to architecture made today.

Mal_huh Whoa Wow what

The clothes, while not being able to scrunch and fit you, dry off, etc; were not too far off. Definitely an ’80s vibe, and we all know the ’80s are totally back. And the short, peroxide blonde hair of the girl in the ’80s Cafe was the Miley Cyrus hairdo, before she was born. And look closely at those clothes again, aren’t there pieces that make you think of hipsters and Lady Gaga?

Backtothefuture2

Just not the stuff these guys are wearing.

Not to mention they had glasses that could watch TV and use to talk. Sound like anything we have today? Or the ability to take calls on their TV, video chatting? Pretty cool! And look at those giant flat screen TVs everywhere in the house.

No hoverboards, but someday.

No hoverboards like this, but someday.

And of course, the third film rounding it out quite nicely!

backtothefutureGoodBafDoc

It was an amazing film series, and an even more magical experience getting to see the films and have a lifelong dream fulfilled.

Now I got back from seeing this at 11pm. But as Marty, Jennifer, and Doc all go to October 21, 2015 4:29pm, I’m posting at that time.

Anyways, one is the Terminator T-800 Model 101, the cyborg assassin who is there to hunt down Sarah Connor and take her out before she can get pregnant and give birth to the father of the future resistance and the only threat to computer control. I just love this opening scene as you see how BA and hardcore the Terminator is.

Arnold Schwarzenegger originally wanted to play Kyle Reese. But James Cameron had a different idea and saw Schwarzenegger in the title role of The Terminator. After all as Cameron told Schwarzenegger, “This movie is not about the hero. It’s about The Terminator”. Just like Barney said:

The second person is Kyle Reese, sent by Sarah’s son to protect her. I love this actor as I just think he is so cute! And its funny, because everything I see him in I always think of him as Kyle Reese.

Anyways, so as Reese is tracking him down, the Terminator is looking for Sarah. He starts going through the telephone book and just mowing down every Sarah he runs into.

Arnold Schwarzenegger worked with guns everyday for a month to prepare for the role; the first two weeks of filming he practiced weapons stripping and reassembly blindfolded until the motions were automatic, like a machine. He spent hours at the shooting range, practicing with different weapons without blinking or looking at them when reloading or cocking; he also had to be ambidextrous. He practiced different moves up to 50 times.

Meanwhile, Sarah is unknowingly is going on with her normal life. She makes plans to go out to the club, while her friend is going to hang out at home with her boyfriend. When Sarah’s out she sees a news report on the TV about Sarah Conner’s being murdered and calls her friend at home to warn her. Unfortunately, she’s just missed her. She has already been terminated.

Couldn't resist

I know, i know

The Terminator hears her message and tracks her down there. Before he can kill her, Reese makes it in time and knocks the Terminator down.

Back off bot!

Back off bot!

Of course he hasn’t actually killed him, as that is extremely hard to do, but he has managed to buy him and Sarah enough time to take off.

As the two are driving off, Kyle tells Sarah about the future. In the year 2015 (NEXT YEAR!!!), Skynet, a computer defense system, will become self aware and begin a nuclear war against the humans. Sarah’s unborn son, John, is the one who will lead the rebellion against the machines and is the only chance for humankind. With the resistance on the verge of victory, Skynet sent a terminator back. A Terminator is a being with a metal endoskeleton covered  by a layer of living tissue, so that he looks more humanlike and harder to determine as cyborg.

Sarah is so freaked out that she doesn’t know how to make heads or tails of the whole issue. She doesn’t have very much time, as the Terminator has caught up with them and is chasing them down in a truck. Their two cars crash and the police show up.

The Terminator goes off to heal himself, and it is an uber crazy scene!

They take Reese into custody as they think that he purposely killed a man (the Terminator). They interrogate him, but think that he is crazy as they cannot find any proof that the Terminator exists. While Sarah is making a statement, we have one of the best and most quoted scenes of all time. 🙂

The Terminator: I’ll be back.”–The Terminator (1984)

Sorry about that. I’m back on track now. So While the Terminator marches in and starts killing all sorts of people, Kyle and Sarah escape.

They flee to a cheap motel where Sarah questions Kyle more about why he was picked to go on this dangerous mission as he can never return home. Reese tells her he volunteered. John had a picture of her and Kyle fell in love looking at it and hearing about her. He didn’t care if he couldn’t go back as it was worth it to be with her. Sarah is touched by his words and the two have sex.

Look at that hunky man

Look at that hunky man

The next day Reese takes off to get supplies and leaves Sarah alone in the motel. She calls her mom to let her know she is okay. That would be great…except that her mom is already dead and the woman she is talking to is actually the Terminator mimicking the voice. Than Sarah does the stupidest thing, she gives her “mom” the phone number of the place she is at. Why would you do that when there is a killer on the loose Sarah? Why? You know he already knows who you and is hunting you down.Darcy P&P OMG Can't Even

So Kyle comes back and teaches Sarah everything she needs to know about creating her own weapons out of common products. While the two are having this sweet scene, the Terminator has tracked them down. Luckily, the dog belonging to the motel’s owner starts barking, warning Reese.

hear that?

The two get involved in a second car chase in which Kyle throws pipe bombs at the Terminator to try and stop him. Reese is wounded and the momentarily stop the Terminator, burning off all his flesh.

He chases the two into a nearby factory. This part is pretty cool, as Sarah takes control of the situation, giving us a preview to how BA she will be in the sequel.

Reese attacks the Terminator, but realizes he doesn’t have much time left, as he’s wounded too bad. He stuffs a bomb into the Terminator’s stomach, the explosion killing Reese and severely injuroing the Terminator. It continues to try and take Sarah down, who leads it to a hydraulic press and crushes it. The only thing that survives is an arm.

Sarah is later taken out of the factory by an ambulance as Kyle’s body is taken away and buried.

Months later a pregnant Sarah is traveling through Mexico and is recording audio tapes for John when he’s older. This is where we are introduced to the amazing Terminator paradox. John is 20 years older than his father. Sarah is like 45 years older than her child’s father. Plus John has to care for Kyle Reese and make sure he survives until he can send him back or else he won’t be born. Crazy! Makes your head spin.

Now even though I absolutely love this movie, I will say that How It Should Have Ended did a pretty good job.

So I work early Monday mornings in a music hall at school that doubles as a classroom and I love watching the clothing people wear as it can be really cute. For instance there is this motorcycle jacket that this guy wears that I absolutely love. I know it would look good on me and would fit perfectly as the guy is close to my size, he’s about a few inches taller than me.

But today we had some really interesting clothes. There is a girl that wears fluorescent clothes every time, and today had pj pants with feet on them.

There was this other woman who was wearing some Tron: Legacy-esque pants.

But the most interesting thing that was worn today was what the motorcycle jacket guy was wearing. He had on his jacket, black cowboy boots, and bright, red pants.

Now I know what you’re thinking, Marty tried the colored pants in Back to the Future III and it did not work out.

Back to the Future III

“Doc: Marty, you’re going to have to do something about those clothes. You walk around town dressed like that, you’re liable to get shot.

Marty McFly: Or hanged.

Doc: What idiot dressed you in that outfit?

Marty McFly: You did.”

Which incidentally I got to see in real life! ❤

Back to the Future III

Now, on the contrary, I think wearing colored pants shows that you have some confidence. It takes a lot of moxie and chutzpah to do so. And instead of looking horrible, he totally stalked in and as Ted would say:
