Back To The Future Part II (The 2015 Hilldale Scenes)

Join Scott and Hamish as they go back to the (um...very recent past?) and conclude their two part series, breaking down the 2015 scenes from the iconic film "Back To The Future Part II"! In part one, they discussed 2015 Hill Valley. Now, for part two, they delve deep into the scenes that take place at the home of the now married Marty and Jennifer McFly in 2015's Hilldale. From thumb pads to multi channel TV's to robot chefs, they'll discuss what innovations and devices the movie got right, and what still looks like the future today. They'll also talk about how Pepsi mishandled their "Pepsi Perfect" campaign, how the USA Today did everything right with their Back To The Future promotion, and why shoes like Nike MAGs may actually be closer to hitting the shelves than we think. So hydrate a pizza, put your video goggles on silent, and explore the amazing world of Wednesday, October 21, 2015 along with us! 

For part one, check out the 2015 Hill Valley episode of this podcast!

Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens (3rd Trailer)

Join Scott and Star Wars expert Paul as they breakdown every little detail of the third trailer for the most anticipated film of the year: Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens! Listen as they speculate on the motivations of Kylo Ren, what the Starkiller Base actually is, the origin story of Finn, and the mystery that is the absence of Luke Skywalker. They'll also address the questions: Who are the Knights of Ren? Why are stormtroopers burning homes? How did BB-8 land on Jakku? Do Finn and Poe Dameron dislike each other? Does Chewbacca die? And many more! They'll also discuss appearances by Han Solo (Harrison Ford) and Princess Leia (Carrie Fisher), Rey's (Daisy Ridley) life on Jakku, and the amazing work by J.J. Abrams. Then, using the other two trailers and official poster, they'll try to put together the pieces of the puzzle and guess the framework of the story. So much to discuss, so little time left! May the sequels be with you!

Back To The Future Part II (The 2015 Hill Valley Scenes)

Join Shawn, Scott, and Hamish (joining the show from "the future" AKA Australia) as they take a very special trip back to the present and discuss every little detail of the 2015 Hill Valley scene from the iconic 1989 film "Back To The Future Part II" to see just how close it was in predicting the world we now live in. And when we say every little detail, we mean EVERY LITTLE DETAIL! They'll discuss how the movie's predictions of products, movies, advertisements, cars, fashion, sports, and news stories hold up and other little details you may have missed. Listen as they review, among many other things, every news item from Doc's copy of the USA Today, the items in the antique store window, the Chicago Cubs winning the 2015 World Series, and of course the Hoverboard. Some predictions were dead-on, while others may require another 30-year DeLorean trip to actually see. So, c'mon all you bojos, ride your hoverboards into town, meet us in front of the Cafe 80's and explore with us the Wednesday, October 21, 2015 we've always dreamed about! 

This is only part one! For part two, we will discuss the 2015 McFly House scenes! Look for it...in the future!
