The 1985 movie that started it all turned 30 this summer, but more importantly, Wednesday is Oct. 21, 2015 — a.k.a. the date that Marty McFly travels forward in time to in Back to the Future II. There are plenty of parties and a chance to relive the movie on the big screen, but it also seems like a great time for a little reflection, too. So we asked our Things to Do crew to look back and look forward because, after all, it’s Back to the Future.
This looks like it could be a great movie for the kids. 🙂
Could be the best movie of all time….
Kung Fury is an over-the-top 80’s action comedy that was crowd funded through Kickstarter. It features Kung Fury, a Kung Fu renegade cop who travels back in time to kill his Nemesis, Hitler. The film features nazis, dinosaurs, vikings and cheesy one-liners. The campaign that was launched in December 2013 was backed by more than 17 000 people who together gave more than $630 000.
This is a very cool atmospheric short film that pulls you into a paradox.

It is hard to believe that the movie Flatliners came out almost 25 Years ago. This movie messed with my head so much when I was 13. I wonder if Flatliners can stand the test of time. Special effects have come a long way since this was released, it will be interesting to revisit what I once thought was mind blowing special effects. Hopefully the movie stands up well enough that Hollywood doesn’t feel the need for a cheesy sequel or even worse, a dreaded reboot!
Dust off your VCR’s or fire up your Netflix, Flatliners is this weeks Shot1 Discussion Club movie of the week. Let’s see if this start studded cast can f’ with my head 24 years later.
For those of you without a VCR, or Netflix. There is a questionable link below to an online streaming version of the movie. Enjoy at your own risk.
If you don’t know the movie or want a refresher, the trailer is below.
I knew this movie when it was called, “I was a Teenage Sex Mutant”. This was a classic skinimax flick. I remember seeing it the first time through the blinking lines of the channel filters.
Wow, this is a movie? From the director of Gummo.
My buddy reccomends I watch this. Can’t wait.
