No Time Like the Future: An Optimist Considers Mortality is the fourth memoir written by Emmy-winning actor Michael J. Fox. I’ve had my copy of the hardcover book since probably 2020. Unfortunately, I only read it over the past few weeks and finished reading it early this past week. Let me just say that Fox’s fourth memoir makes for solid companion reading to the new documentary on Apple TV+, STILL: A Michael J. Fox Movie,…"No Time Like the Future by Michael J. Fox"
Emmy-winning actor Michael J. Fox reflects on his life and his fight against Parkinson’s Disease in STILL: A Michael J. Fox Movie. Filmmaker Davis Guggenheim takes an interesting approach to his documentary on the Back to the Future star. This is a documentary that could have gone any number of ways. Instead, editor Michael Harte has quite the job of weaving in clips from films and series to match what the actor is saying. There’s…"STILL: A Michael J. Fox Movie – Sundance 2023"
Back to the Future Part III mixes up sci-fi and the American West to give audiences a thrilling conclusion to the time-traveling trilogy. One thing I love about the Western aspect of the film is that they pay homage to John Ford. Rick Carter has his work cut out by designing the production in Monument Valley. They also pull another homage by casting three Western veterans to hang out at the saloon: Pat Buttram, Harry…"Back to the Future Part III Closes Out The Trilogy"
Back to the Future Part II continues the adventures of Marty McFly and Doc Brown by going to 2015, back to 1985, and then 1955. Robert Zemeckis and Bob Gale would only return if Michael J. Fox and Christopher Lloyd signed on for a sequel. Things were different in the 1980s because sequels were not a sure thing. Even now, they aren’t a sure thing. Part of it is fans demanding a sequel. Crispin Glover…"Back to the Future Part II Goes On A New Adventure"
Back to the Future is not only an instant classic for the ages but the film kicked off a successful trilogy of classic movies about time travel. This film never gets off the ground without Steven Spielberg. It’s very much an old-fashioned film that brings together a number of themes. As Spielberg says, the script brings together two different generations. But even with Spielberg coming on board, Robert Zemeckis and Bob Gale still had their…"Back to the Future: One of the Best Films Ever Made"
Atlantis: The Lost Empire, quite the departure from the 1990s Disney films, marks its 20th anniversary since its 2001 theatrical release. This film came ten years after filmmakers Gary Trousdale and Kirk Wise directed Beauty and the Beast. At the time of its release, it featured a diverse cast and characters. Perhaps Disney may have been onto something but when all was said and done, it just didn’t earn enough money at the box office.…"Atlantis: The Lost Empire Marks 20th Anniversary"
Back to the Future: The Ultimate Trilogy features new bonus features and is currently available for fans to bring home on 4K Ultra HD. There are a few franchises where every film is a classic. This is one of them. From the opening frames of the first film to the closing minutes of the final installment, everyone will have a good time. This isn’t to say that the franchise doesn’t have its flaws because it…"Back to the Future Trilogy Gets 4K Ultra HD Upgrade"
