Last Week's Doctor Who Had the Weirdest Star Wars/Back to the Future Easter Egg

It’s almost second nature for sci-fi to be self-referential—not just to itself, but to the wider pantheon of shows and movies. Doctor Who is no stranger to these references, but last week’s episode, “Face the Raven,” had one that was typically Doctor Who: An Easter Egg, hidden inside another Easter Egg! »11/24/15 10:22am11/24/15 10:22am

Back to the Future II expertly edited to show the real 2015

We all know this by now: the 2015 in Back to the Future II didn’t happen in real life. We failed. But! We can totally make things right by changing the past, as in re-editing Back to the Future II to include things that actually happened in the year 2015. It actually works out quite well, as PistolShrimps shows,… »11/09/15 11:30pm11/09/15 11:30pm

As Promised, Nike Finally Reveals BTTF II Air Mag Sneakers With Power Laces

Back in 2011, the Nike Air Mag, the shoes that Marty McFly wore in Back to the Future II, were released to a ravenous fan base.

Hendo 2.0: Tony Hawk Helped Design a New Hoverboard That Actually Hovers

This time last year, we reviewed the Hendo—a real-life hoverboard that actually levitates off the ground (as opposed to whatever this thing is.) The same company’s new and improved model looks and feels more like a skateboard—with help from Tony Hawk. The image above is just an illustration, since the real thing will… »10/15/15 9:27am10/15/15 9:27am

Hilarious animation imagines Back to the Future traveling to our real life 2015 instead

Everyone knows that the 2015 that Doc and Marty time traveled to in Back to the Future II was so much cooler than our 2015. They had hoverboards and self-lacing sneakers and flying cars and fusion reactors! We don’t have any of that. Instead we have bad fashion taste, global warming, selfies, Internet bullying and… »10/14/15 9:19pm10/14/15 9:19pm

Back to the Future's DeLorean was almost a refrigerator--plus 8 other BTTF facts

Back to the Future is basically the perfect movie. But it totally could have been just a bad 80’s movie if a few things went differently. Like if Eric Stoltz never got replaced with Michael J. Fox, if the movie had used a refrigerator as the time machine instead of the DeLorean or if the movie was called Spaceman from… »8/25/15 9:44am8/25/15 9:44am
