The Behind the Scenes Pic of the Day made a time machine… out of a Delorean?!?

Ahoy, squirts! Quint here with today’s Behind the Scenes pic! Growing up Robert Zemeckis’ Back to the Future films were on constant rotation. My parents loved them, I loved them… hell, everybody loves them. There’s something just right about the first movie, an effortlessly fun film with some brains. How often do we see that? I’m also a big fan of the second and third films as well. Back to the Future Part II is particularly awesome. Who didn’t want a hoverboard when they were kids? I remember having real arguments with friends about whether or not hoverboards existed. I had one dumb-ass buddy that was sure he saw one for sale in a catalog and wouldn’t let it go. And have you seen the WTF hidden craziness from the end of BTTF III? Click here and you'll have your mind blown. What the hell is going on there! The last time I sat down to watch the BTTF Trilogy with a girl we weren’t paying attention to the screen by the second movie if you catch my drift. If those movies can get a guy as ugly as me to second base they truly are works of genius! Case closed, your honor! I miss you live-action Robert Zemeckis! Come back to us! Your movies are magical! Now, I’m not sure if this picture is from the first or second film, but I’m thinking it’s the end of the first movie. Either way it’s a great example of the effects technology of the time at work. Hooray for miniatures! UPDATE: This pic is from the making of Back to the Future II and features ILM's Peter Daulton) Here’s the pic! Enjoy (and click to make bigable)!

If you have a pic you think should be included email me. I’m looking for the iconic, the rare or the just plain cool behind the scenes shots to feature here. We continue the time travel theme with one of cinema’s greatest pals in tomorrow’s Behind the Scenes pic! See ya’ then! -Quint Follow Me On Twitter

    This pic, re: creativity

    by kevred

    Great BTS pic. I just finished reading an old interview with jazz pianist Keith Jarrett, who had this to say about creativity: "It is some dark and deep work that has to be done and the lighter and the more technologically convenient our world gets, the less there are going to be people who even know that there's anything like that."<p>While it's true that what we see in this photo is technology, I think we all know there's a difference between this type of technology and our current software-saturated age. This pic shows a technology that's still directly grappling with reality - actual light, actual surfaces, actual movement - and actual object in physical space. Not simulations.<p>These photos are good reminders of what we're going to wake up and realize we've lost in a decade or so. And we'll be dealing with the resulting creative bankruptcy for some time thereafter. Things will be created, but far fewer great things.

    Practical model effects!! Boy those days are gone

    by skimn

    Read the recent interview in Empire with Spielberg, Cameron and Zemeckis and prepare to be frightened. These big 3 have embraced mocap as the next eventuality in cinema, so don't envision Zemeckis retaining the image of flesh and blood actors on film any time soon. They speculate on filming a Dirty Harry with a 1971 visual version of Clint Eastwood, and so forth. Yes, the technique works for films that need it for special effects like Benjamin Button and Avatar, and the "young" Jeff Bridges has yet to be seen in Tron Legacy, but the fact that it seems Zemeckis has totally embraced it is sad.

    As much as I love BTTF1, and as much as it is an enjoyable evergreen film, I personally have to rank the Goonies, Ferris Bueller's Day Off, and Beverly Hills Cop above it in the list of most enjoyable movies. But again, that's just my opinion and BTTF1 definitely makes the top 5 (BTTF 2&3, although likeable, wouldn't even crack my top 25, though).

    Claudia Wells - BTTF wiki trivia time!

    by fat_rancor_keeper

    Claudia Wells, who had played Marty McFly's girlfriend Jennifer Parker in the original Back to the Future was to reprise her role, but turned it down due to her mother's ill health. <P>The producers cast Elisabeth Shue instead, which required re-shooting the closing scenes of Back to the Future for the beginning of Back to the Future Part II. The re-shot sequence is a nearly shot-for-shot match with the original with only minor differences such as the dialogue scene where Doc Brown noticeably hesitates before reassuring Marty that his future self is fine - something he did not do in the original film.<P> It was nearly 10 years before Claudia Wells returned to Hollywood, with a starring role in the 1996 independent film Still Waters Burn. She is one of the few actors not to make an appearance during the 2002 "behind the scenes" documentaries on the Back to the Future trilogy documentaries on DVD.

    Is BTTF #1 the most beloved movie ever?

    by gooseud

    This is a serious question for the TB legions: is it the most beloved movie ever? I can find a few people who find the Godfather boring. I can find a few people who no longer love the Original Trilogy because of the shadow of Ep. 1,2 and 3. Terminator, Dark Knight, all these films have at least a few detractors. But NO ONE, and I mean NO ONE, I have ever met in person or seen on a website has ever NOT absolutely loved this movie. In fact, to most people ages 25-45, male OR female, all you have to do is just MENTION BTTF and they break out in a big cheesy goofball grin and start immediately quoting lines and talking about fave scenes. It helps that every single moment in the film, honestly, is flawless. I think Raiders is a close second, but this takes my trophy as the most widely beloved movie ever made.

    The Great Hoverboard Debate

    by Spyhunter

    All started because during a preview show that came on national TV before BTTF II was released, someone involved with the production (can't remember who) said "Hoverboards are real, but the parent groups are preventing them from being sold" (or something to that effect). Anytime a kid would mention there's no such thing as hoverboards, they would point to that guy. I mean, who would lie about that on national TV? Ah, to be young and gullible again. Or at least just young.

    Back to the Future trilogy is a lot like the Indy trilogy

    by Turd_Has_Risen_From_The_Grave

    Let's forget Crystal Skullfuckery exists. Anyway, for the sake of comparison, the first movies in both trilogies are stone cold classics, regarded as such at the time and still holding up today. However, there is a curious parallel in the sequels - both Doom and BTTF 2 were regarded as quite shitty when they came out, probably because they both veered away radically from their predecessors. Then, when Crusade and BTTF 3 came out - both much more linear films that rehashed the originals quite a bit - they were regarded as a return to form, and even in some quarters the very best of their respective series. Now as time has gone on, things have been reversed, with Doom and BTTF 2 regarded as the better and more daring films that actually took risks as sequels, and Crusade and BTTF 3 are now seen as by far the weakest of the trilogies, just watered down versions of the first parts. Just a thought.

    Quint - love that the camera's called "Vista Cruiser"...

    by GreatWhiteNoise

    That scripted badge on the side of the camera comes from an Oldsmobile Vista Cruiser, a '70s-era station wagon about the size of Kansas, one of which we proudly had when I was a kid. Went 275,000 miles and never had the valve covers off. 'She may not look like much, but she's got it where it counts, kid.'

    by Kraven Morehead

    1) BTTF - mega tight script. 2) Terminator - also very tight and arguably the best action movie ever. 3) Time After Time - very good premise for a movie that's executed well. It also stars Mary Steenburgen who has never stopped looking bangable. 4) Frequency - lots of stuff going on. It may have a few paradox problems but what're you gonna do. It's also moving so that's nice. 5) Idiocracy - because a pimp's love is very different from that of a square. numbers 3-5 are debatable but 1 and 2 are locks for that position.

    About the Stoltz footage.

    by Sailor Rip

    I agree, I didn't know they shot that many scenes with him but movies are shot out of sequence(for the most part). Just because he appears in pics from the beginning and middle of the film doesn't mean he shot half the film. It could easily have been two to four weeks of shooting.

    Mc Fly inbreeding!

    by PaddyIrishman

    Love the films. Used to watch the first one at least twice a week as a kid. There's just one thing that pisses me off about Bttf 3. How come Lea Thompson plays a Mc Fly in 1885? Surely Marty should be a 6 fingered banjo player in 1985.

    Saw BTTF last summer at a midnight movie

    by mortsleam

    I've seen it countless times on video and cable since it first came out, but hadn't seen the FILM since '85. Goddamn what a fun movie. Especially gratifying to see it with a big group of people, some of whom were too young to have ever seen it on the big screen. Being a horrible cinema snob this movie doesn't quite make my top ten, but it was a helluva lotta fun to see again. This, Ghostbusters and Ferris Bueller are the triumvirate of flawlessly constructed high-concept 80's comedies.

    Anyone remember the cartoon?

    by BizarroJerry

    A few years after Part III, there was a BTTF Saturday morning cartoon. Anyone remember? Everyone had returned to the present, and the two Brown kids were main characters. Doc now had a time-traveling train and I think a new Delorean. If memory serves, a lot of plots were the kids or Marty taking unauthorized trips. Also, they would run into some Tannen relative in every episode. And that pimpin' kid's character actually the trouble maker.

    The hoverboards WEREN'T real...

    by HarryKnowlesNonExistentInceptionReview

The story was, they used real hoverboards that some company had invented but which were outlawed by the government because they were considered too dangerous to market or some such.

    Stoltz is a very funny dramatic actor

    by mortsleam

    In films like Pulp Fiction (as Lantz the drug dealer) and the original Kicking And Screaming (as the 30 year old college senior) his deadpan, understated delivery kills. Think of this exchange from PF: <p> Vincent: I gotta stab her three times? <p>Lance: No, you don't gotta fucking stab her three times! You gotta stab her once, but it's gotta be hard enough to break through her breastplate into her heart, and then once you do that, you press down on the plunger. <p>Vincent: What happens after that? <p>Lance: I'm kinda curious about that myself... <p>But, aside from taking the "tragedy" aspects of BTTF waaay too seriously, I think the general consensus was that he downplayed the character, played him straight, and tried to let the outrageousness around him cause humor. This can work sometimes, but it's obvious that Marty is a reactive character, and his reactions need to be big. He needs to be in a constant state of panic, needs to re-state the complicated exposition in a realistic, relatable manner, and needs to have a couple extra quirks and neuroses to make him more than a bland cipher. This is where Michael J. Fox wins hands down. He absolutely owned this role.

The kids have seen it (and love it) but I wanted to share the experience again for them on a big screen.<p> What impressed me seeing it again (for the Xth time) was the amount of product placement for Pepsi related stuff (Pepsi Free, Diet Pepsi) and Burger King (Whopper boxes in Doc's office, Dave McFly works there, etc). Also, I dug the XXX theater showing some kind of orgy movie. Look for the name on the marquee.

    Speaking of time travel movies

    by jim

    Watched a British film the other day called "Frequently Asked Questions About Time Travel". It's about 3 friends who, one night at the pub, find themselves travelling in time (to the future). It's a funny movie, although it does have its paradoxes. But it does have Anna Faris, so it all balances out.

    Was fascinated at the differences between American vs. Brit movies and humor. Anna Faris (what a cutey) as the time traveller because, in the future, everyone is American (according to the main character). Love how in Brit stuff, incredibly weird shit happens, but they just take it in stride as "Bloody hell, now what? Oh well, 'nuther lager, mate!"

    Back to the Future is the greatest incest movie of all time

    by Jehovahs_Witness

    People make the mistake of thinking the movie was about time travel, but time travel was merely the device to put Marty in the situation where he's making his Mom's pussy wet. Marty was into it, too, but he didn't want to admit it, but when it came time to come up with a plan to get his Mom and Dad back together, his first idea was to stage a date-rape. <p> I can think of at least 20 ideas off the top of my head to get Marty's Mom and Dad back together which don't involve Marty dateraping his mother. And for him to be convincing and make her think he's going to rape her, he knew he'd have to get somewhat intimate with her, at least to 3rd base. But then Biff broke in and tried to actually rape her. <p> Back to the future...the greatest incest and rape movie of all time. That's why the sequels sucked. They made the mistake on focusing on the time travel and that's why it always felt like something was missing....there was no incest or rape!!!

    by Abominable Snowcone

    You have a point. Marty's plan assumed that at some point, his mother (young Lorainne) would resist his advances. Sure, she resisted Biff--but she didn't WANT Biff; she wanted Marty / Calvin and probably would have let him go all the way. But you are correct that the plan was problematic from the get-go; Lorainne makes the first move and Marty flinches back in the driver's seat. It's clear he couldn't go through with even making out with his hot young mom. What did he think would happen? <p> Still, the scene is expertly written, great comedy. With Lorrainne sneaking a drink, and Marty spitting out his own swig of liquor when mom fires up a smoke

    by Jehovahs_Witness

    But that's precisely the problem with his plan....if you have a girl who's really hot for you, and your plan is to have sex with her in a parked car, you have to factor in the chances that she's probably going to be into it...but since Marty knew that such Oedipal advances would be wrong, he repressed that knowledge while still acting on his impulses.

    Here's what Marty should have done: Just STAY in good ole '55 and bang his mom for a while. It doesn't matter if George and Loraine McFly EVER GET MARRIED. It only matters that Doc Brown will one day invent the time machine. Because then Marty can live from 1955-'85 and DO IT ALL AGAIN. Only catch I see there is Marty would have to hide from his "new self" born circa 1967-68, if in fact his parents do marry and he does get born. If he doesn't, no matter, just jump in the Delorean and go back to the start at Twin Pines mall, your fingers still smelling of Loraine's wet blossom

    It is an never ending Oedipal loop

    by Dirk_The_Amoeba

    Marty is literally born having with his momma having the hots for him and he grows up with a nagging sensation that his mother thinks he is the special one and gives him far more attention - especially at bath time. Then he is propelled into the past and sees her young and fuckable and it all falls into place, and he must seduce her or at least get her so worked up that George can jump in, but by getting her hot and randy he sets off a chain of events that will cascade into the future causing her to forever want/dream/lust after calvin/him (because we never get over that first unrequited lust) as well as the automatic male reaction of having a hot female want him, even though he knows it is wrong. That shit is really fucked up!

  • Aug. 25, 2010, 10:48 a.m. CST


    by Abominable Snowcone

    Yeah, I saw Timerider in theatres when I was like, eleven. The heirloom was kind of like Kirk's antique glasses in Star Trek IV. He pawns the glasses in San Francisco 1986 to get money, knowing full well Bones will again present it to him as a gift 200 years later (as seen in Star Trek II)<p> Yeah, maybe Marty would have started disappearing if he F'd his mom. But that's assuming you buy into the whole "erased from existence" theory at all. In my mind, time travel and probability theory or not, if I have a photo of myself and my siblings in my hand, NOTHING will ever change the context of that photo.<p> But it was good for dramatic effect in the movie, as was Marty's disappearing guitar-playing hand. Might have been even funnier if he'd ran into the gymnasium bathroom to rub one out after getting cozy with his hot young mom, and his jerkoff hand starts to vanish.

    BTTF 2 & 3

    by darthvedder81

    After the flawless original those were absolutely the best possible sequels. They each do something a little differently than the first but retain the same humor and spirit. Part 2 is especially unique in that it's literally showing you scenes from the original but from a totally different perspective. Zemeckis and Gale knew they had a unique opportunity there and they didn't waste it.

  • Aug. 25, 2010, 10:58 a.m. CST

    I wonder what marty would have done...

    by Abominable Snowcone

    ...if Loraine hadn't been so taken by him. I mean, his entire date-rape plan was premised on his knowledge that he knew his mom had the hots for him. Had she been indifferent, how do you suppose Marty would have gotten Lorain to turn her attentions (favorably) to George? <p> Then again, the whole date-rape plan still might have worked, after all rape is supposed to be unwanted. So Marty's plan still could have worked if he, say, got Loraine (who in my scenario does NOT have the hots for him) alone behind the school and tried to screw her, THEN have George come in and be the hero.<p> Either way, the point is that everything in BTTF revolves around Lea Thompson's sweet wet apple blossom

    by Abominable Snowcone

    I agree. Retracing some of the high school dance events in Part II was pretty fuckin' inventive. The best is at the very end, when we see Doc sending Marty I back to the future, but then Marty II comes running around the corner again in his leather jacket saying I'm back...FROM the future.<p> Now, every time I see the original, I expect Marty II to come darting around the courthouse corner after Marty I is sent home<p> What would be wild is to have a scenario where someone travels to the past and encounters themselves on ANOTHER time-travel trip, only it's one they HAVEN'T TAKEN YET, and therefore, unlike Marty, they don't know what that other self is going to do and therefore it's hard to avoid encountering him and creating paradox. The only trick here is to also find a way to get Lea's moist crotchflower involved

  • Aug. 25, 2010, 11:06 a.m. CST

    If his Mom didn't have the hots for him....

    by Jehovahs_Witness

    ...his plan might have made a little more sense. But since she did, it just shows that Marty had the same hidden desire. George at one point brings this to Marty's attention.."You mean you're going to touch her on her...." Yet Marty persists with this plan, knowing what precisely he plans to touch. <p> Why not just have Doc show up wearing a ski mask and a rubber gun and rob her at gun point, and then George comes to the rescue while Marty plays the coward? That works. But nooooooooo, Marty insisted on the date rape.

  • Aug. 25, 2010, 11:07 a.m. CST

    In other words

    by Abominable Snowcone

    Given my above hypothetical, and rewording it differently...imagine the dance sequence in BTTF2 and think about, what would happen if original Marty (say, onstage) spotted Marty 2 (in the leather jacket) but Marty 2 WASN'T AWARE he'd been spotted?<p> Now, I'm guessing Marty 1 would be surprised--but he shouldn't be THAT freaked out, because after all, he DOES know time travel exists--that's what got HIM there. I can imagine Marty 1 approaching Marty 2 and saying, "What the hell is this?" and Marty 2 saying something like, "Look, I know this is weird, but trust me, you've just got to stick to YOUR plan--I'm working on something else."

    by Abominable Snowcone

    Having doc pose as a robber seems like an okay idea until you realize that another objective to Marty's plan is cancel Biff out of the equation. Loraine doesn't like Biff, but Biff wants Loraine, and unless something or someone intervenes, his persistence just might pay off (as seen in BTTF2). So it's kinda crucial that Biff be the villain, no? Granted he was NOT involved in Marty's original plan--Marty himself was gonna be the "rapist." Biff just happened to come along. But when you think about it, that kind of HAD to happen, no?

  • Aug. 25, 2010, 11:28 a.m. CST

    It occurs to me now

    by Abominable Snowcone

    That the trip to 2015 (the first act of BTTF2) was completely unnecessary. After all, Doc Brown came BACK to 1985 (end of BTTF) with knowledge that Marty's kid would grow up and get in trouble. All Doc had to do was relay that info to Marty. Marty and Jennifer could then let things progress naturally. Then, in the future, when they DO have a doofus of a son, simply impress on him the importance of just saying "no" to Griff's crime spree. Middle-aged Marty could even assist his son at THAT time. It wasn't worth the risk for young Marty to venture into the future to try and undo things preemptively on his son's behalf.<p. Moreover, it's got nothing at all to do with his mother's pussy.

  • Aug. 25, 2010, 11:35 a.m. CST

    Biff was an unintentional part of the plan

    by Jehovahs_Witness

    The importance of the "nobody calls me chicken" thing

    by Abominable Snowcone

    The reason why the "nobody calls me chicken" thing is introduced in BTTF2 is because it is precisely Marty's unwillingness to back down from a challenge that causes his future-family (2015)to turn out less than idea. We learn in BTTF2 when young Jennifer is brought by the police to her future home that older Marty's career--and their entire family life--went sour after Marty's car crash. In other words, he got in the wreck because he wouldn't back down.<p> But over the course of events in BTTF2 Marty learns his lesson, and by the time the end of BTTF3 rolls around, he refuses to engage needles in the drag race that would have culminated in the life-altering car wreck.

    by Abominable Snowcone

    In BTTF2 after young Jennifer sees her older self and faints, Doc and Marty take her back to 1985--what they THINK is their 1985--but it's the alternate "bad" 1985. As we know, Marty is able to undo the events that made Biff so powerful, and this dystopic '85 is essentially erased. My question is, how the hell does Jennifer end up on her front porch in "normal/improved" 1985 at the end of BTTF3 if the alternate '85 was essentially wiped clean? It's as if her sleeping body jumped from one timeline to another. She didn't TRAVEL there with Doc and Marty; they arrive back in '85 vis-a-vis their trip to the 1885 west.

  • Aug. 25, 2010, noon CST

    So while Marty couldn't have known it at the time, at the end of BTTF2, he could have STAYED PUT there in the corrected '85 and found Jennifer on her front porch, and Doc eventually could have come BACK FROM 1885 in his time-train for a visit.

Granted it IS the 1985 Doc stuck in 1885 who is doomed to be shot, but THAT Doc also has a delorean with him, right, so couldn't he escape if he chose?

    Marty figured he had to go back to 1885 to save Doc.


    Sure, you could argue that the 1955 Doc knowing his ultimate fate in 1885 might have meant that he could have avoided that death himself but over the course of the trilogy Marty never fully 'gets' the ins and outs of time travel and as far as he was concerned he had no choice but to go back and save him.

  • Aug. 25, 2010, 12:36 p.m. CST

    Tale of two letters

    by Abominable Snowcone

    So what we've learned here is that, apart from Loraine's fragrant shrubbery, the trilogy is about prevent Doc Brown from getting shot. Twice. And in both instances the thwarting of said shootings involve letters that were written in violation of Doc's "rules" of time travel.<p> The first letter is the one Marty writes in BTTF, to warn Doc that he'll be shot by Libyans in 1985. Doc rips this letter up in '55, but we learn later that he taped it back together and heeded the warning. The second letter is the Western Union message Doc wrote in 1885 and had held for Marty in 1955 to relay his situation. Based on THAT info, Marty again looks up Doc '55, and while researching Doc 1885, they learn he's gonna be shot. So a plan is hatched to save Doc once again, this time in the past. Where it's not Loraine's luscious mound that woos men, but Maggie McFlys.<p> Damn, what a fine movie trilogy.

  • Aug. 25, 2010, 12:39 p.m. CST

    Or three letters

    by Abominable Snowcone

    if you count the fax from 2015 telling Marty "You're fired." Because that also becomes a crucial piece of evidence, which Jennifer later references (end of BTTF3) to know everything is okay (the "fired" message is erased).<p> In that regard, the family photo with Marty and his bro and sister might also be considered a "letter," or crucial piece of evidence that acts as a physical signpost of whether Marty's actions are or aren't having an effect

  • Aug. 25, 2010, 12:43 p.m. CST

    Here's a theory I've always had.


    In the original movie, when the terrorists show up Doc grabs his pistol and tries to shoot at them, only there are no bullets in it. Could it be that the reason the gun was empty was because Doc fired the gun dry when he was sending Marty off to 1885 at the beginning of BTTF3? Doc doesn't strike me as being a gun nut and I think it's plausable that he might have simply put the gun in a drawer and not touched it again for 30 years.

If I remember correctly, Marty floated the board back to Doc and Clara so they could get clear. So I take it Doc held onto it? In the old west? And perhaps brought it with him on his travels on the time-train?

    by RPLocke

    I know that's fucked up to say, but the characters of Doc and Marty are so much better written in Part III. And the movie wraps up the other 2, so it works fine.

  • Aug. 25, 2010, 3:41 p.m. CST

    I love all three movies

    by Adelai Niska

    But I'm in that rare group who puts 3 above 2. I just think the future and alterna-1985 are less interesting than Doc in the Old West. Marty retracing scenes from bttf1 absolutely rules tho.

  • Aug. 25, 2010, 5:02 p.m. CST has the best commentary on BTTF.

    by Royston Lodge

    They have several articles that touch on BTTF that are just brilliant. Not just the paradoxes, but also pointing out just how creepy the new version of 1985 really is after Marty gets back.<p> For example, if you were a relatively intelligent and clearly successful author, would you really give the bully who tried to RAPE your wife back in high school the keys to your house?

    BTW, BTTF Fans-

    by TedKordLives

    Anyone not familiar with howitshouldhaveendeddotcom should definitely bop over there and check out 'How Terminator Should Have Ended'. Yes, it's relevant to this Talkback and yes, it's probably the most awesome thing I've ever seen on the internet.

    Sorry man, I could have and should have shot you and email to let you know. Looks like you checked in right about when I took off for the day, however.<p> I rewatched BTTF2 last night, so intrigued by this TB was I; I wanted to re-scrutinize things from a fresh POV. Damn, it's a good sequel. Tight. Like Lea's warm sweet strawberry patch.

  • Aug. 26, 2010, 8:22 a.m. CST

    Yeah Con, that's exactly what the Kong thing is.

    You just sit there while they shake the tram. You get sprayed with dirty water mist as a capper. <p> Hell, in a few months I'll be begging for the dirty spray from Miley's of-age clam.

    I broke my nose smashing my face into Elisabeth Shue's mons.

    Speaking of Shue

    by Abominable Snowcone

    I sang her praises here yesterday, then got to admire her last night as Jennifer in BTTF2. She's too damn cute. "Hollow Man" got her in panties. Any other Shue films I should check out for maximum exposure?

  • Aug. 26, 2010, 10:55 a.m. CST

    I think Leaving Las Vegas was the dirtiest she ever got.

    by Stuntcock Mike

    "Cut my ass" <p> HEYOOOOOOH!

  • Aug. 26, 2010, 11:54 a.m. CST

    That was Shue?

    by Abominable Snowcone

    I thought Laura Dern was the chick. Did Shue play someone else?

  • Aug. 26, 2010, 11:56 a.m. CST


    by Abominable Snowcone

    Okay, I checked imdb, you're right she's in it, as someone named "Sera." Guess I'll have to revisit that one.<p> Lis was also Ali in the first Karate Kid. Got to makeout with Macchio. Ew.

  • Aug. 26, 2010, 12:58 p.m. CST


    by LaserPants

    And I remember seeing it in the theatre as a kid. Liked it then, but it doesn't hold up, and is kind of a crap movie. I'm eternally baffled by how much GENERATION SUCK loves the 80s so much. Aside from underground / indie music culture (which was AWESOME), and some cool stuff like Robocop and/or Road Warrior, it was a TERRIBLE decade for just about everything else. If you actually lived through it, you'd know.

  • Aug. 26, 2010, 1:24 p.m. CST


    by Abominable Snowcone

    But I DID live through it. And I think I've gotten to the point, 20 years later, that I'm able to be more objective about it and know what was good, and separate it from my own feelings of nostalgia. Because yeah, some stuff from the 80s was shit. I do love BTTF though. I'm engaged to marry Elisabeth Shue. She doesn't know that yet.

  • Aug. 26, 2010, 2:49 p.m. CST

    Elisabeth was SMOKING HOT in Palmetto

    by Nasty In The Pasty

    They tease on full-on nudity, but there's a scene with Woody Harrelson groping her ass and tits for a few minutes that's boner-city.

  • Aug. 26, 2010, 3:23 p.m. CST

    Definitely Feel You On The Elizabeth Shue Love!

    by LaserPants

    I was OBSESSED with her when I was younger and saw Adventures and Babysitting. Isn't it weird how she doesn't seem to have aged at all? That movie came out, like, 20 + years ago? She looks almost exactly the same.

  • Aug. 26, 2010, 4:26 p.m. CST

    Ah crud. Had to thrown in on this.

    While I respect anyone's right to have an opinion, THIS Clockwork couldn't care less about telling others that something they obviously like is no good. Quint, some days this is the only reason I check the site. Good work.
