While Pepsi Perfect is currently working out how to salvage its dynamite promotion idea to sell the futuristic beverage of choice for Marty McFly on October 21, 2015, let’s celebrate the amazing franchise of Back to the Future. Directed by Robert Zemeckis, written by Bob Gale and starring Michael J. Fox, Christopher Lloyd, Crispin Glover, Thomas F. Wilson, Lea Thompson, Claudia Wells (and Elisabeth Shue), this time traveling science-fiction phenomenon and pop culture epic is the epitome of the best of what a “B-movie” can be. It’s original, has action, is funny, has heart and feels bigger than a something we see on a screen (like a 3-D Jaws…).
It aces every category!
Back to the Future captured our imaginations, our dreams and electrified the idea that anything is possible. We can choose to make our future bright and everything we want, just as long as we’re willing to stand-up to and battle the Biff Tannens of the world. When I was younger, my family and I visited Universal Studios and we rode in and experienced the Back to the Future ride in Orlando, Florida. Waiting in line was actually fun, especially when we got prepped about out mission in Doc Brown’s lab. And “experience” is the key word with this trilogy and it’s one of the reasons why this series remains so meaningful to us after all these years. It was so much more than just movies from the ’80s.
The Back to the Future trilogy really does underscore “the power of love.”
Now, the time has come to see the future…on October 21, 2015.
And Nike, the day has literally come to power-lace our heart strings!
