My Geeky Trivia
By Geeky Gem
Well didn’t those four weeks with Hmsbeefnuts in charge of trivia just fly by? I was glad for the break and it was funny watching Hmsbeefnuts freak out about how time consuming writing up trivia can be. Well welcome to my world Hmsbeefnuts! Anyway, I am back for a new four week run and this time I am not going all things that go bump in the night.
I thought we could start my new run off with one of my all time favourite films, Back to the Future. Way back in 1985 this movie hit the big screen and made me want to jump for joy. I have seen this movie more times than I can count so here is some trivia about this awesome movie and it’s sequels.
Back to the Future
Musician Mark Campbell did all of Michael J. Fox’s singing. He is credited on the movie as Marty McFly.
This may not surprise you but this movie was highest grossing film in 1985.
There is a deleted scene that shows Marty peeking in to a class room back in 1955 and seeing his mother cheating on a test.
I have only recently noticed this little bit of information, In the opening sequence, all of Doc’s clock’s read 7:53am except one. It’s on the floor next to the case of plutonium and reads 8:20am.
Back to the Future Part 2
When Marty arrives in 2015, he looks in a window of an antique store, where you can see a denim jacket that he wore in 1955, a Roger Rabbit doll and a Jaws Nintendo game.
The shooting title for the movie was “Paradox”. On the DVD special features it can been seen written on the slate in the making of the movie feature.
This movie marks the on screen debut for Elijah Wood; he plays one the kids who want to play the video games in the Cafe 80’s. Who knew Frodo had been to the future he must have known Peter Jackson would cast him.
Back to the Future Part 3
In this movie Doc and Marty exchange catchphrases. Marty says “Great Scott” and Doc replays “Yeah this is heavy” while they are talking about the photo of the tombstone.
Thomas F. Wilson who plays Buford Tannen, performed all his own horse riding stunts, he even did the one where he lassos Marty just before we meet Doc in 1885.
The embroidery on Marty’s western costume is the symbol for atomic energy.
And there we have a week of Back to the Future goodness, come back next week to see what other delights I have for you. It may not even be a film.
