Back to the Future bridges the gap between science fiction and humor with the tale of Marty McFly, played by Michael J. Fox. A mid-eighties teenager befriends a seemingly-mad scientist as his closest friend, played by Christopher Lloyd. His plans of a weekend escape with his girlfriend Jennifer become foiled and young McFly has to deal with the loss of his attempts at a stay over with his mate. It isn't until McFly's friend Doc Brown enlists his assistance in filming his greatest contribution to mankind that he finds himself to be over his head.
Doc Brown has stolen plutonium for his time traveling device, and they have come for payback. Having to elude the attackers, McFly jumps into the time traveling Delorean and ends up in 1955. Now he is left alone in hopes of finding his friend and letting him know of his fate. While in search, Marty stumbles upon his father at a younger age, who is victim to the bullying of Biff's father. His paths cross with his mother as well when he falls from a tree while trying to assist his father in the attempts of wooing her. His mother falls in love with Marty, which creates a lapse in the time spectrum, causing the possibility of fate for Marty before he is even able to be born.
Marty McFly must convince the Doc to help him return to 1985 so that his existence does not disturb the system any more than it has, but where does one find enough power to drive the time machine? Only Marty knows when enough power will be generated, and his alliance with the Doc proves to be one that spans the test of time. Back to the Future is full of adventure and humor from start to finish, whether it is in the 1980's, 1950's, or even the future.
Tinker Hatfield isn't making any promises, but we might be getting power laces sometime this year.
Your latest elaborate Internet hoax comes to you now in the form of hoverboards. A very convincing video went viral today from a (supposed) company called Huvr Tech, claiming to have created the first fully functioning hoverboard, a la "Back to the Future." Not only are the special effects in the video slick enough to fool many who watch it, but somehow the people behind Huvr have gathered an impressive group of celebrities to star in the video.
It's Back to the Future time!

It's been a long time since Robert Zemeckis directed a live-action movie: his last was "Cast Away" back in 2000. It's been even longer since he visited a time travel storyline, as he did with the "Back to the Future" trilogy, which remain some of the best time travel movies ever made. Zemeckis could soon return to form in both cases as he's currently in talks to direct the exciting upcoming project "Replay."
