Thoughts from your host…



There was just no damned way I could let this date pass without marking it on-mic.

The film that gives this date its infamy is such a huge part of my filmgoing past (as I’ll explain on the show). It’s a date that has a certain lore in the pop culture sensibilities of an entire generation. Plus, if nothing else, it finally gave me an excuse to talk about one of the best film trilogies of all-time.

Of course, such a momentous occasion couldn’t come down to just one guest. We wouldn’t nearly be able to do the topic justice. So instead, I put out the call to some longtime friends of the show and a quorum was assembled to talk all things Zemeckis, DeLorean, Hill Valley, ’55, ’85, ’15, Stoltz, Fox, Shue, and Brown.

So pour yourself a Pepsi Free and pop in your Van Halen cassettes…”the future” has finally arrived.
