Huey Lewis, Michael J. Fox, Christopher Lloyd, and Lea Thompson attend the “Back to the Future” New York special anniversary screening at AMC Loews Lincoln Square, New York City.
Okay, we’re so basic that we watched the entire trilogy yesterday. We regret nothing. We hadn’t seen the originals in at least ten or fifteen years and were pleasantly surprised at how well the first two held up. Something else that surprised us: they did a shockingly good job of predicting what Christopher Lloyd and Michael J. Fox would look like in 30 years, but clearly dropped the ball entirely on Lea Thompson, who appears to have stopped aging roughly 20 years ago.
It’s so weird to think no part of the Back to the Future films actually take place in the future any more. For some reason, that makes us a little sad; as if there was still hope that we were going to get our hoverboards any day now. At least Nike finally perfected the self-lacing shoe, although we remain skeptical as to how well they work. Still, there were times watching the 2015 portion of the films where we actually forgot for a moment that we were looking at the ’80s version of 2015. The LED street lights and flatscreen TVs seemed so normal that we forgot they were actually predictions that came true.
Anyway, here’s to the old gang. It must be fun to have something of your work pass into legend status while you’re still around to appreciate it.
