Huey Lewis & the short Canadian

Because my creative well has  run dry, I decided to let the next tweet that appeared in my feed provide the topic for this post. Considering some of the freaks people I follow, it could have been very bad. Thankfully, it was pretty awesome. Like, totally awesome!

Today, May 3, 2015, marks a unique day in movie history as evidenced by the below photo:

If you don't know the movie you're either under the age of 21 and your parents have neglected you, or you've been living under a rock. Either way, you're a travesty to me and the entire film industry. Seriously. You MUST remedy this sitch immediately or you'll have to forfeit your membership to my fan club. Yeah, it's that serious.

BACK TO THE FUTURE is one of the best films to come out of the 80's. (And John Hughes had nothing to do with it so...yeah, that's saying something). It's right up there with Karate Kid and The Goonies. Okay, maybe not the The Goonies, but it's a right of passage for sure and will go down in history as one of my top twenty...maybe fifteen movies of all time.

I won't give away the story for those of you who haven't seen it yet, *adopts threatening expression directed right at YOU*, but it's in this movie where you get to see Michael J. Fox step away from his Alex P. Keaton role and into something a little less...conservative. He may only be five feet tall, but this little Canadian can deliver!  Plus, you'll understand why Power of Love is one of the best songs to come from the 80's. *Nods to Huey Lewis...and the News*

Here's a little reminder for those who haven't seen it in a while...
and for those of you who never have, digest this awesomeness now and then scamper off to Netflix, Amazon Prime or...anywhere, and get your hands on this movie. You'll be so happy you did.

(Also, don't judge the wardrobes harshly...everybody dressed that way in 1985. #truth)
