Back To The Future is one of the Choob’s top three all-time favourite films. It’s easily the movie I have watched more often than any other.
Now, here’s a thought. On July 3 this year, Back To The Future celebrates the 25th anniversary of its release.
Quarter of a century! Mull that over for a minute.
We are now only five years away from (what seemed at the time) the far-flung 2015 future that Marty McFly and Doc Brown visited in 1989’s Back To The Future Part II (the boffins better get a move on with the flying cars and hoverboards).
Even more scary, it means that the journey back in time from today to the film’s release in 1985 would only be five years shorter a trip than Marty’s original jaunt back to 1955. For those of us who grew up in the 1980s, the 1950s – and the people who grew up in them (i.e. our parents) – seemed like ancient history… so what does that make us look like to kids of the noughties?
On that depressing note, here, to cheer you up, is an excellent musical mash-up (scratch-up?) of the original film’s exceptionally excellent soundtrack, courtesy of Eclectic Method:
