It Must Be ‘Back to the Future’ Day [Great Scott!]

FIRST…

SCI FI Wire has re-produced five famous sci-fi movie quotes in my favorite data representation format: the infographic.

My favorite? “Roads? Where we’re going, we don’t need…roads.”

Hit up the link for more, including quotes from The Matrix and Ghost Busters.

SECOND…

I can’t think of anything better to say about this, so I’ll directly quote The Best Article Every Day:

The ‘Back To The Future’ Mind F*ck, 25 Years Later

That’s right, Back to the Future just blew your mind 25 years later. Anyone who says they’ve noticed this before is a liar.

Seriously…DID anyone notice this before?

You can’t help but feel bad for the people who thoughtfully included this detail, because I’m sure that more than 99% of the population completely missed it.

    Hubs LOVES that movie, I just showed him the chart and the Mall signs. BTW the malls signs – I had no clue, but that is awesome. Love the clever touches :)

  2. Andrew:

    I live close to this mall. THAT blew my mind.

  3. Megan:

    I was basically raised watching this movie every time we caught it on TV. I am proud to say that I did notice the mall’s name change! And I’m sure that qualifies me for some sort of nerd-dom…..

  4. "Roads? Where we’re going, we don’t need…roads."
    that quote is hubby’s favorite sci fi movie quote as well!

    He says it all the time….can’t wait to show him this!

  5. Jenny…. this is one of my favorite movies of all time and I have seen it so many times over the years. One movie that I can watch over & over again. Yeah there is a lot of neat little details like that in the movie. I love it! I do have to say that it took me some years before I started noticing them though like the Twin Pines Mall sign.

    Anyway, I found your site after seeing you on Squaregirl’s (Krystyn Heide) Twitter Page. Cool site! I’ll have to revisit when I can and read more. I love Squarespace and have been very happy with them. :)

  6. Jen:

    Maybe it is just because I have seen this eleventy bajillion times, but I noticed the Lone pine mall a long time ago. These movies are full of great little details like that, making them totally rewatchable. Love them so much.
