Back To The Future Day 2015 Has Come and Gone


The popular 80’s movie Back To The Future II depicted a very different – yet similar – future of the year 2015. In the movie, Marty McFly and Doc Brown went to the future and emerged on 21st October 2015 – just a couple of days ago.

Imagine if they came to OUR 2015 instead:

Things they got ALMOST right: the Cubs winning the World Series (they ended up in the final).

The famous Hoverboard scene:

Things they got right or almost: Compost fuel (biogas) exists, though it’s not too popular ; flying cars like the Terrafugia but nobody uses them; the Hoverboard (it’s called a hoverboard but has two wheels and is more like a segway); Tablets; Wearable EyeGlass devices (think Google Glass); Self-tying shoes (Nike actually invented them); 3d Movies (not Jaws 19 but there are so many sequels) ; Holograms (the Michael Jackson hologram exists); Flat-Screen tv’s; Skype; Automated waiters (just think of iPlace in Malta).

There’s an amazing Parody version of a trailer of an imagined new BTTF movie:

Michael J Fox trying on the self-lacing shoes FOR REAL:

Toyota did a video reuniting the two stars Michael J. Fox and Christopher Lloyd.

Teens react to BTTF:

A video showing Marty McFly and Doc Brown ending up in OUR 2015 instead:

This video shows how Back to the Future predicted 9/11. Hmm, interesting coincidences.

Universal Pictures created a fake Jaws 19 trailer in time for Back to the Future Day too!

Reunion of Marty and Doc Brown for BTTF Day:

Thoughts of Doc on the Future on BTTF Day:

David Duchovny on The Talk, Talks about new X-Files




This is a really cool interview with David Duchovny on “THE TALK” which really made my day. The original post by CBS isn’t visible outside of the USA, but this YouTube version is. We can also see Sliders’ star Jerry O’Connell. David discussed the return (reboot?) of X-Files and his return to primetime in the upcoming drama “Aquarius”.

Star Trek Legion of Super-Heroes Crossover: Chekov’s Scotch Whiskey and the TARDIS


I was rereading the Star Trek Legion of Super-heroes crossover and was impressed on how well written and drawn it was.

Released by IDW and DC comics starting in October 2011, it features a six issue crossover between the original Enterprise team (TOS) and DC’s Legion of Super-heroes of the time.

Writer: Chris Roberson
Pencils: Jeffrey Moy
Inks: Philip Moy
Colours: Romulo Fajardo JR
Letters: Chris Mowry, Shawn Lee, Robbie Robbins
Series edits: Chris Ryall

There is a reference to Darkseid placing this after the Great Darkness Saga for LOSH, which is still in “New 52” continuity, thus it seems this story has still happened in the “New 52” continuity.

And there is the TARDIS too, together with the Back to the Future Delorean and a host of other time machines…

Besides that, I noticed a reference to Chekov’s “Russian Misconceptions”, when he makes the LSH people think that in his universe Russia invented Scotch Whiskey, when in fact it didn’t!

This video has some nice “Russian Misconceptions” by Chekov.


Watch Karen Gillan Shave Her Head


VIA Radio Times
Karen Gillan, known as “Amy Pond” and “Amelia” by many Doctor Who fans, shaved her head completely to star as the total bad-ass Nebula (Thanos’ daughter) in the hit Marvel Movie Guardians of the Galaxy.

Unfortunately her shaved hair was turned into a wig which isn’t in the new Star Wars.


Watch the video she shared and see her hair get shaved off..
