What's he matter with you people?
Also why can't I find a Sport Almanac anywhere?
I was thinking it's weird that that's it now, there are no more iconic films based in the future to wait for, when did the future stop being a thing
became a whimpering mass of nostalgia festishists, longing for the simpler comforts of youth in rejection of a future which is a) uncertain and b) far removed from the `live your dreams!` fest which was sold to us growing up.
We were taught, are taught, the exact opposite. It was all about conforming, remembering regurgitating and passing exams. His was deeply ingrained into us from age 5. Every day. By
Parents, teachers, children's TV, stay in school kids!
Then the educational system spits you out with a degree and a debt and says "come on, think for yourself - why as you not an millionaire entrepreneur already you utter loser. Look at Sugar or Branson. You're nothing but a failure."
We're taught to prepare and graduate then it's demanded we create wealth and free think (as long as it benefits the economy - don't be a fucking poet or artist).
Then those that ARE poets or artists - the few who are successful -,are also celebrated. Rubbed in your face. You're not a business owning genius but you're also not a creative artist. What the fuck are you doing? Even though "society" has brainwashed all of us into conformity and not rocking the boat.
Are the ones who either make money or their work becomes profitable after they bite the dust.
Everything is measured in terms of profit. Your entire self worth boiling down to how much mine you're worth. Imagine Damien Hurt or Tracey Emin's work not being profitable. Everyone would think they're a joke. Fuck society man. Fuck it in the ear.
Surely that pile of fucking shit is just around the corner.
when Blade Runner is set obvs
Day in Terminator either. The reason being that no one cares.
Also we had a zx spectrum
It was great!
Just replied "I'm vegetarian"
are far too busy being far too nonchalant to mention that, yes, quite a lot of people outside of DIS seem to be talking about it. OH GOODY, another thing to be superior about and pretend to be annoyed by :)
AND the giddy fawning over this at the same time y'know!
have spoiled it by posting fake "IT'S BACK TO THE FUTURE DAY EVERYONE!" pictures on Facebook for the last five years.
Also because I've never seen Back To The Future.
and too much marketing shit.
But mainly because I've never seen Back To The Future.
the product placement will really annoy you
Might be my last chance as sure is its PG and well....you know :)
Love it the Lore, the characters and just everything about it. My Bedsit will be recreated into a fake (but so real to me) Dr Eemett Brown workshop tonight ;)
I seem to remember countless false alarms previously.
(is it tautological to 'remember' 'previously'? yes, it must be)
I was 16 when it came out so I was in no great rush to do so.
Close this whole thing down everyone.
The first half of II was total gash, apparently. Te wife gave up when Marty arrived in the alternate 1985 dystopia, but I persevered and it picked up from there tbf.
II is a dreadful film. III is enjoyable but not great.
II is fine.
III is absolute dogshite. fucking flying train.
you're all idiots
The first one is good though.
With II they were really clutching at straws the make all the characters fit in somehow, and badly covering up the ones who didn't want to be in it. With III at least they wen't, 'fuck it, let's just make a totally unconnected film and be done with it.'
III syncs better with II than II does with I (which is obviously because II and III were filmed together, years after the first one)?
weak sauce man.
Just admit that you prefer III because you love ZZ Top and we can all move on.
They're both pretty crap.
is clearly a dug-shagging imbecile
seriously it's just a fucking date
I thought that I'd never make it to this date because it was so so far in the future.
Here I am, and full of wine
was the day after the day that he went to the future still full of Facebook posts about the previous day being the day when he'd gone back to the future? I can't remember.
