Great Scott, Marty!

Post by Rath Darkblade » Wed Feb 05, 2014 3:49 am

Fire up your DeLoreans - a new musical, based on the Back to the Future films, is being made. The director is Robert Zemeckis, the same man who directed the original films.

To be honest, I have my doubts about this project. There will inevitably be comparisons with the original, and some (even many?) people will feel that the new actors are not a patch on Michael J. Fox, Christopher Lloyd et al. *shrug* Still, I wish them the best of luck... ;)

Also, personally, I feel that the original Back to the Future film was the best of the three (and yes, I did see all three). I felt the second film was tacky overall, and the third felt weak, story-wise - like it was simply trying to cash in on the Back to the Future name. But that's just me. ;) How about you? What did you think? :-)

That's kind of odd. I'm not sure if I'd like it or not. I do like musicals, but I think I would have a hard time not comparing it to the movies constantly.
