I got to see another movie in the theater! It doesn’t happen much, so excuse my giddiness.
That one. That’s the one I saw.
In one word, the movie was excellent. It relied heavily on CGI, which every movie does anymore. But, it had a few things that not every movie has.
Those of you who like to pick apart movies and over-analyze things already know that the Back To The Future series is full of plot holes and paradoxes. I did a very short search to find a list of what is most likely just some of those, and I haven’t seen the one I noticed yet, so I’m going to mention it here.
A list I really liked that keyed me in to some of those plot holes and paradoxes is on Den Of Geek, check it out.
Marty, Doc and company travel to October 21, 2015 in BTTF2, and that date happened a week ago, so naturally it was BTTF Day all over the net. That made me think how I hadn’t watched them in a while, and I was about due, so I got my trilogy out and watched the first movie. Tonight I decided to watch the second movie, and for the first time ever, I noticed something that stuck out so terribly that I can’t believe after all this time I just figured it out. I also know that out there somewhere, someone probably already figured this out a long time ago. In any case, here it is.
In the series, Doc constantly says how they shouldn’t mess with anything, they should just study the past and future. Otherwise, just let it ride. Of course they completely blow this in the very first movie, and that has been pointed out many times already.
I like how just as they end the conflict in the first one, just a minute later, Doc returns from 2015 to tell Jennifer and Marty they have to go with him to the future to save their kids from making a mistake.
That’s the plot for BTTF2. To go into the future and completely change the course of natural history. So much for don’t touch anything, take only pictures.
What movie do you think of when I lay it out like this…
Rich dude opens a theme park on an island to showcase cloned dinosaurs to the world. Experts say things will go horribly wrong, rich dude says whatevs, and then things go horribly wrong. Dinosaurs escape their fences and start eating people. Two kids are in the hands of a guy who is saving the entire park from the dinosaurs. In the end there’s an epic battle between Raptors and a Rex and the park is shut down.
Jurassic Park? Sure, and its current sequel, Jurassic World, which has broken worldwide records for money made. The two movies are basically the same damn story which has people calling this a reboot when it is clearly a sequel. Despite that, a lot of people are also calling it a crappy movie, which it was.
I really didn’t care for it at all.

No, it isn’t about pies.
Up until a week ago I had no idea this movie existed, but I saw it listed on Netflix, so I gave it a watch today. It stars Adam Sandler and Steve Buscemi. Have I ever mentioned how much I love Steve Buscemi?
Both of them make this movie great. I think it would work by itself with other actors, but because it was them, especially with their background and chemistry with one another, they made it that much better.
Supporting them, amongst many others who all did great jobs in the movie, were Method Man, the beautiful Dascha Polanco (Orange Is The New Black), Adam’s nephew Jared Sandler, and legend Dustin Hoffman.
I think Method Man should be commended for his acting in this movie. Not only did he have to play an ultra ghetto street shark who made his money illegitimately, he also had to play the complete opposite. To explain:

Today my wife and I had plans to go see Jurassic World with some others, but those others flaked on us so we decided to go see it by ourselves. So we went to a new theater we’ve never been to before and saw San Andreas.
The theater we went to is an XScape, which turned out to be pretty awesome. Not only can you buy White Castles there (they’re most likely the frozen kind) but you can get as much butter as you want on your popcorn, for free. They even let you dispense it yourself. They have butter stations next to the fountain pop stations, which they also let you get yourself, too.
In the theaters themselves they have reclining seats and tons of leg room. The seats were ultra nice.
Oh, so the movie was good, too. It stars The Rock as he defeats Triple H for yet another title. Then he goes out and saves a bunch of people from dying when the San Andreas fault decides to ruin everybody’s shit.
