Reason 1: I get to talk about three of my favorite movies.
Reason 2: It’s Back to the Future Day!
Back to the Future Day, as I’m calling it, is October 21st 2015, the day on which Marty McFly arrived in 2015 in Back to the Future Part 2.
My local theater is playing all three back-to-back-to-back tonight and I’m looking forward to seeing that!
In honor of Back to the Future Day, instead of reviewing Back to the Future Part 2, or the original, or trying to review both, I thought it would be cooler if I did a mini-review for each in the trilogy.
That way, I can talk about what makes each one work, talk about each one’s cultural significance, and not feel like it’s too short or vague of a post!
So without any further ado, let’s get started with one of the Best Movie Trilogies Ever Made!
The Gift is a movie that I’ve wanted to see for more than a couple months now and I was not disappointed by it.
The Gift stars Jason Bateman, Rebecca Hall, and Joel Edgerton.
It was also written and directed by Joel Edgerton in his directorial debut. And it was a GREAT movie for a first time director.
And it’s about this couple played by Bateman and Hall who move to California and run into this weird guy Gordo (Edgerton) who went to high school with Bateman’s character. And after they start interacting with Gordo, some weird stuff starts to happen…
