What the Past Got Right

The Back to the Future trilogy is one of the most iconic films of all time. Directed by Robert Zemeckis starring Michael J. Fox and Christopher Lloyd the trilogy quickly became classics starting with the first movie. The trilogy is truly one of the greatest and funniest sci-fi trilogies of all time.

This past wednesday October 21, 2015, was back to the future day. In back to the future part II marty traveled to the year 2015 to save his kids. The internet lit up with posts about “back to the future day” to compare what the movie predicted would happen with what actually happened.

The movie predicted we would have flying cars and hoverboards. While we do have the capabilities of creating them, they are not on a mass scale or even approved. If Marty had traveled to 2035, I think they would have gotten them right.

“We have to go back to the future!”

Another thing the movie predicted was the consumption of dehydrated food. All I can say is thank God they got this one wrong because that would have sucked. Even though you can buy dehydrated food no one eats it on a regular basis like the movie predicted.

One of the things the movie did get right was flat screen T.V.s. Most people nowadays have a flat screen T.V.if not two. Another innovation that the movie guessed correctly was  Drones. Drones are becoming more and more popular everyday and many people can afford to buy a drone and fly it around.

With October 21st coming and passing the Back to the Future Trilogy is officially in the past. Having said that the trilogy will always remain as one of the greatest, and one of my favorites.

Love For Movies

One of my favorite things to do in life is watch movies. They absolutely fascinate me, how a director and actor can make a script come to life. They influence my everyday life in so many ways from recommending movies to my friends to making jokes about movies and everything in between.

Just the other day my friend Avo and I watched the movie inception. I loved everything about the movie from the plot to the performance by the actors even the soundtrack was amazing. It was so good that after the movie was over my friend Avo started to pinch himself to see if he was in a dream or not! My favorite scene from the movie was the scene when the crew is trying to get back from all the dream layers .

Inception was great and all but it was not close to any of my favorites. My favorite movie of all time has to be Goodfellas. Martin Scorsese did an amazing job directing. Ray Liotta did a superb job as Henry Hill as well as Robert De Niro in his role Jimmy Conway. Both did an amazing job of keeping me glued to the screen. But I have to say, if there was one performance I would give an award too, it would be Joe Pesci’s role as Tommy Devito. His violent outbursts as well as the bits and pieces of comedy he contributed made the movie for me. I genuinely felt bad for Henry  when tommy was asking him if he was funny. He was that good.  

Here are some scenes from the movie that made it so memorable for me. Viewer discretion is advised.

Here Martin Scorsese puts his genius directing on display as he shoots one of the best long takes in cinematic history.

My favorite Joe Pesci scene of all time as he scares the living daylights out of Henry Hill.

Last but not least my favorite scene of all time, the aftermath of the Lufthansa Heist.

I would like to end by leaving you guys with a tip. When you watch a movie, do it without distractions, like phones or talking. If you really pay attention to all the lines and the way the actors portray their characters the movie will reach a whole new level of entertainment. Trust me when I say, It’ll be good.
