"Back to the Future II" predictions that came true

Today marks the 25th anniversary of the "Back to the Future" trilogy and it was 2015 when Marty came back to Hill Valley to save his kids in "Back to the Future II" - so what has come true from those future predictions and what hasn't? TRUE:
  1. handless and wireless video games
  2. our obsession with 3D movies and sequels
  3. handheld tablet computers
  4. Florida baseball team (the Florida Marlins entered MLB in 1993, followed by Tampa Bay Devil Rays who entered MLB in 1998)
  5. Video conferencing
  6. wall-mounted widescreen televisions
  7. watching multiple channels at the same time
  8. being consumed with personal electronics
Not TRUE (yet):
  1. The Chicago Cubs winning the World Series (could still happen)
  2. Hoverboards
  3. Female president (could still happen)
  4. The movie claimed we would be done with laser discs
In honor of the 25th anniversary, today the "Back to the Future" Triology is being released on Blu-Ray and DVD.

What Say You on The Donald, Jon Stewart?
Okay, this one's a few days old, but well worth watching. On The Daily Show the other night, Jon Stewart was beside himself on the news that Donald Trump hadn't yet officially filed his paperwork to seal the deal on his presidential candidacy. Jon's been hoping and praying for Trump's candidacy, just to make his last six weeks on the show palatable... And now... Well, see how Jon reacted... I'm gonna miss this guy...   The Daily Show Daily Show Full Episodes,  More Daily Show Videos,  Comedy Central Full Episodes

Freddie Not Impressed by Kanye
Yesterday, we took a look at the abomination others called Kanye West's cover of Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody." We weren't the only ones who were thinking that. Check out this amazing mashup of Freddie Mercury "reacting" to Kanye's performance. And then Kanye "reacting" to Freddie's performance. If it doesn't make you laugh, there is no hope.   And by the way, to those who might think that Freddie actually had something to say - as I saw a few times on Facebook yesterday - please keep in mind that Freddie passed away in 1991.

Alex Trebek Goes All Fresh Prince
On Jeopardy! the other night, the category was TV. Dollar value: $800. Clue: "In the theme to this 90's sitcom, "I pulled up to the house about 7 or 8, & I yelled to the cabbie, 'Yo, Homes, smell ya later!'" Correct answer, and sort of a no-brainer: "What is 'The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air?'" What made it memorable, and in my mind, just a little creepy, was the way Alex Trebek read the clue. I'm sure he was going for a rap style, trying to imitate Will Smith, but it sounded more like a cross between Kelsey Grammer's Frasier and Orson Welles. Plus, he pronounced "later" as "lay-terr," not "lay-tah." No self-respecting rapper would do that, Alex!

Tackle Made by Number 99, JJ Watt!
Sunday night in Milwaukee, an overzealous fan crashed the stage during a Zac Brown concert. He was dancing a little too close to the band, having a great old time, and never saw what hit him and leveled him on the stage. What did hit him? Houston Texans' defensive end JJ Watt. All 6'5" and 300 pounds of him absolutely flattened the guy. When he was able to collect his senses, JJ unceremoniously escorted him offstage, to the wild cheers of the audience. I wonder if that's going to get JJ any training camp points with his coach?(function(d, s, id) { var js, fjs = d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0]; if (d.getElementById(id)) return; js = d.createElement(s); js.id = id; js.src = "//connect.facebook.net/en_US/sdk.js#xfbml=1&version=v2.3"; fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js, fjs);}(document, 'script', 'facebook-jssdk')); Nobody messes with Zac Brown Band Posted by JJ Watt on Monday, June 29, 2015

"Once You've Had One, You Can't Have Another"
Chris Pratt put on his best Jason Statham face and outfit on Saturday Night Live to do a promo for Jason Statham's Jason Steakums. Funny idea. Halfway decent impression. But a pretty lame bit. Which could explain why they cut it from the show. And Kenan Thompson as Ving Rhames? What the heck are you thinking about, SNL writers? Besides your summer vacation, that is.

"If It Happens Fast, It's Almost Lethal"
Chris Farley became famous superfast, thanks to his tenure on Saturday Night Live. And it seems like he left the planet just as quickly - some say a victim of his fame. He was only 33 when he died of a drug overdose in 1997. Now there's a new documentary about the comic actor's life, featuring a bunch of his contemporaries and workmates, talking about him, what his sudden fame did to him, and what he's left behind. I Am Chris Farley is set for release on August 1 according to most sources. Check out the trailer.   (function(d, s, id) { var js, fjs = d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0]; if (d.getElementById(id)) return; js = d.createElement(s); js.id = id; js.src = "//connect.facebook.net/en_US/sdk.js#xfbml=1&version=v2.3"; fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js, fjs);}(document, 'script', 'facebook-jssdk')); David Spade, Christina Applegate, Dan Aykroyd, Lorne Michaels, Mike Myers, Adam Sandler, Molly Shannon and more reflect on the comedian’s life and legacy in I Am Chris Farley.

Happy Anniversary, Let's Break Up
Say it ain't so, BenJen! On Monday, Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner celebrated their 10th wedding anniversary. Yesterday, they announced they'll be filing for divorce... Think maybe somebody was so wrapped up in being Batman, he forgot his annivesary? Actually, those in the know - you know, the folks at TMZ - have seen this coming for a while. And it will be a while before it's all finalized, say the TMZers. Not until all the financial and custody matters are settled. So, don't be sending the divorce greeting cards just yet, kids.

From the Mouths of Babes
We're talking babes as in young folks here, so please try to follow along. The phrase means that young children often speak with great wisdom. So who better to consult about the Supreme Court's decision last week about marriage equality, right? That's what the folks at Jimmy Kimmel Live! were thinking when they sent their Man on the Street out on the street to see what young kids thought about gay marriage. The responses are pretty funny. (function(d, s, id) { var js, fjs = d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0]; if (d.getElementById(id)) return; js = d.createElement(s); js.id = id; js.src = "//connect.facebook.net/en_US/sdk.js#xfbml=1&version=v2.3"; fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js, fjs);}(document, 'script', 'facebook-jssdk')); Kids explain same-sex marriage.

Ain't No Strings on Me
This may be one of the weirdest movie mash-ups of all time. Perhaps proof positive that some people have too much time on their hands? Take a classic like The Wizard of Oz, and mix it up with Avengers: Age of Ultron, and what do you get? Avengers of Oz: Age of Tin Man, of course. It's pretty creepy and pretty funny all at the same time.

Why, Kanye, Why?
By now, you've probably heard that - despite 150,000 petition signers who begged for it not to happen - Kanye West headlined the Glastonbury Festival over the weekend. He got stage-stormed by a local comic - that was pretty cool, him getting a dose of his own medicine. But once the dust had settled from that, Kanye did something unforgiveable. He "performed" a cover of Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody." He hit every third note, which is about as many of the lyrics he got right. I'm sorry, it was atrocious. But don't take my word for it - check it out yourself. Don't worry, it's a short video...
