June Photo A Day Challenge & Book Challenge – June 9th

June Movie Photo Challenge:

ALL TIME FAVORITE!

Without a doubt, my all time favorite movie is Back to the Future! Always has been, always will be. I’m not sure how old I was when I first saw it, but I fell in love right away. All the characters and actors are great, the plot is done fantastically well, and it’s just an amazing movie about time travel and the repercussions of such. I’ve seen the movie more times than I can count and I never grow tired of it!

June Book Challenge:

So I think I’m gonna give up on reading The Da Vinci Code for now and start reading Dead Lines again soon. I really did want to finish The Da Vinci Code, but I took it out from the library and can’t renew it again. So, I think I’m just gonna move on to Dead Lines, which I’m looking forward to reading again!

Back to the Future Tag!

Okay, I was just inspired by the tag Kat filled out (see previous post). Friends is my favorite TV show, so I decided to do a tag based on my favorite movie: Back to the Future! I’m not sure if this tag already exists, but I’m going to make my own version if it does!

1.) Name a movie/book/show that makes you want to go back in time when you were younger and enjoy it all over again!

Inkheart

2.) What’s your favorite sci-fi and or fantasy book/show/movie?

Back to the Future of course! 🙂

3.) What’s a moment in a book that takes place in the past or future that you’d like to visit?

This is actually a hard one. I don’t really like how the future is portrayed in fiction. As for the past…I don’t know.

4.) What’s a fictional store, cafe, etc. in a book/show/movie you’d like to visit?

Blast from the Past in Back to the Future. That store seems awesome! Plus I want that Roger Rabbit doll!

Cafe 80s would be cool too if it was done better!

5.) Name an automobile or way of travel in a book/show/movie that you’d like to take for a ride. What book/show/movie is it from?

The Dolorean from Back to the Future or the car from Looney Toons Back in Action!

We Don’t Need Roads – A Book Review

So today I decided to take another break from writing about anxiety and write a book review! I just finished reading We Don’t Need Roads. The Making of the Back to the Future Trilogy by Caseen Gaines. Now, before I start the review, I’d like to tell you all that Back to the Future is my favorite movie of all time and the trilogy altogether are my favorite movies, so I’m a big fan of Back to the Future. However, I’m not one to collect everything I can of the movie or go to conventions. I do, however, have the trilogy, a cute Funko Pop Vinyl of Doc, and now this book! So without further ado, let the book review begin! 🙂

Rating: 4.5/5

My Synopsis and Opinion:

We Don’t Need Roads The Making of The Back to the Future Trilogy by Caseen Gaines is an amazingly written book. From the first moment you begin reading it, you’re hooked. Being a Back to the Future fan, I was curious about Back to the Future facts and this book certainly delivers.

Gaines manages to include interesting information about all three movies. While movie facts are always flying around, Gaines does a great job of including some that I had never previously heard. The author goes into talking about how the movie making process began, how the cast members were picked, issues that came up in the making of the movie, and of course, the wonderful magic of the Delorean, Hoverboards, and everything in between.

The book is amazing at getting interviews from the main cast members. Michael J. Fox, Christopher Lloyd, and Lea Thompson are just a few of the cast members whose words about the movies are documented in this book. Another great thing about the way Caseen Gaines writes is that he finds out what the actors all thought of each other and it’s not always nice. It’s not a book completely filled with actors saying how amazing and friendly the other actors were, it really gets in touch with the reality of the movie business and how not everyone always gets along.

Another great thing about We Don’t Need Roads are the creatively titled chapters and dates that go along with the following events. The in-depth description of how each movie was made and how much time and energy it took really makes you feel connected with the movies in ways that you may never have felt connected before.

The only thing that makes the book less than perfect is the fact that when speaking of the last movie in the trilogy, the author seems to not include much information, but rather sum it all up. He does mention some facts about the movie, but before you know it the next chapter is starting and we’re learning about the making of toys and products for the movies instead of the last movie itself.

All in all I think this is a fabulous book for any Back to the Future fan who wants to learn about the making of a great movie. As someone who has the awful habit of not completing the books that I start, it’s a testament to the book that I kept reading and quite intently. I was fascinated by the information and all I wanted to do was share the interesting facts! Gaines is a great writer and he certainly shows just how much investigating he did into the movie. I encourage all Back to the Future fans to check the book out!

Sorry if this wasn’t the best book review. It was kind of my first. The bottom line is that this book was really good and I definitely recommend it! I’m also not against those who go to conventions and collect stuff from movies. I just wanted to point out that while I love the movie, I mostly just watch the movies a lot.
