Back to the Future is a classic. Like any classic, it has some sins. This was one of the runners-up in our viewer-request poll, so we’re being all charitable and stuff by doing this one as a bonus.

  1. That Nam-Ek scene was brutal! I will never look at that scene the same way again…

    • Yeah I totally didn’t see that! That pilot gets annihilated.

    • Another reason why people shouldn’t get all pissy about Superman killing Zod. If they’re willing to kill people, they should be willing to accept the same fate. So how is Superman wrong for giving him what he deserved? And I know supposedly that black hole just pulled them back into that other realm where they were imprisoned before, but I like to see it as them being squashed, so…

  2. I wish I was rich enough to buy the Barrett and HK’s, except I wouldn’t waste my money on the HK’s and spend that on many others, lol.

  3. Man of Steel might have had too much action in that second half (specifically too much destruction) but it sure did have a few epic fight scenes :)

  4. Everything Wrong With Back to the Future in 8 Minutes or Less

    i refuse to acknowledge this

    • Most of these problems are apparent the first time you watch that movie. Zemeckis didn’t care too much about continuity and time travel logic. He cared more about the fun and the human story. That Everything Wrong video doesn’t change anything about Back to the Future still being one of the best adventure movies of all time.

        • True, true.

      • thats why i refuse haha

        i was just thinking about the Big Bang episode when Amy screws up Indian Jones for Sheldon

        • I don’t think it ruins anything. It’s all about the journey and not the outcome. What counts is that Indiana Jones gave his all trying to stop these guys while not knowing what the outcome would be.
