Recently watched Back to the Future 1+2 again and I gotta say I still like the first one and the second is kind of a guilty please, but holy fuck were those movies packed with product placement.
Felt like watching a show on tv with constant advertisement breaks.
Really took away from the experience for me. As a kid I didn’t notice but as an adult I was like “GTFO with your fucking products, I try to immerse my fucking self in a movie!”
Imagine that shit happening in Mad Max Fury Road:
You sit there and you’re like “Whoa that chase!” your blood pumping, you’re in that fucking movie wondering what’s next suddenly Immortan Joe drives up in his car and they go close up on the Mercedes star then zooms on the sidewindow where he holds up a notebook showing the Apple symbol or some shit.
Goddamn I don’t want to be reminded of the real world when I go to the movies! I got to the movies to get away from that shit.
to be fair we do live in that type of environment, also keep this in mind
btw, you might infer that other time travelling films are better but thats probably because they weren’t as ambitious as back to the future. the second movie had lots of little flaws because they put SO MUCH into the film, the acting quaility was a notch lower than the original.
I can’t wait for the bro riots in Wrigleyville, because that neighborhood sucks.
I want to make a trip out there for a pirates series next year. I’ve never been, hopefully early in the year so the bandwagon hasn’t come on in full force yet.
It would be fucking epic for them to lose today on back to the future day, in Wrigley and it being a sweep.
There’s always a bandwagon. Cubs games are a tourist destination and they have fans that support them no matter how shitty they are, which I know is the opposite of bandwagoning, but Cubs games are just like a thing to do for people regardless if they care about the game or not.
