    If anyone is interested, Back to the Future is coming back to the big screen this Saturday afternoon, and again Monday night.

    Other than Star Wars, I can't remember a movie that memorized (edit: and mesmerized) me more than Back to the Future. I was six years old at the time and it's one of the first I remember seeing in the theatres.

    It memorized you? You must be pretty memorable. :D

    Sounds a little "big brother"-like. Or maybe Yakov Smirnof.

    Ha, memorable and not great at rereading posts....or at least, not great at paying attention to the spell-check corrector.

    Sorry, I couldn't resist swinging at a waist-high softball. ;D

    Back to the topic at hand, I watched the first Back to the Future movie a couple months ago and was impressed at how well it holds up.

    On my way to work every day, I pass a place called Lone Pine Farm. I can't help but think in another time it was called Twin Pine Farm. :D

    Hot Tub Time Machine had a ton of Back to the Future references and it also featured Mr. McFly.

    Those movies really do hold up. They're awesome.

    Cool father-son moment a few years back: When he was in middle school, my wife and daughter were out, so I told him there's this movie I wanted him to see, and it was the first of a trilogy.

    He loved it, and we eventually watched the next two.

    He's a college freshman now, and he's got the trilogy on DVD. I borrow it from him once in a while.

    A few years ago, watching it for the umpteenth time, almost got floored when I noticed that the guy playing piano at the prom dance was the father of my daughter's best friend from karate class. Sat and chatted with the guy for a couple of years, he never mentioned being in the movie.

    Cool movie I saw with my mom, my aunt and my cousins in '85. My youngest cousin, who was 4 at the time, got scared when the DeLorean disappeared with the fire skid marks. But we convinced him it was the same car as Knight Rider, so that made him happy.
