The power laces appeared in Back to the Future II in 1989, and ever since consumers have wanted a shoe that could tighten itself. In 2011 Nike released the MAG...

It’s been a big week for “Supernatural” fans. The little show that could won two People’s Choice Awards (Favorite Network Drama and Favorite Sci-Fi/Fantasy Show). Suck it, “Vampire Diaries!” TVLine.com also reported that—SPOILER ALERT— “Supernatural” staple Jim Beaver will eventually return, and my favorite guest star, Mark Pellegrino will be reprising his fabulously evil turn as Lucifer in the episode 15. So this week's episode felt like icing on a very awesome pop cult cake.

“Time After Time” was artfully pieced together in a non-linear manner, but I’m going to do my best to break...

Radical Retro Movie Review: 'Back To The Future Part III' On 20th Anniversary

BTTF III
The “Back to the Future” series captures our hearts because it successfully blends science fiction, action, adventure, and comedy to show us teenager Marty McFly’s (Michael J. Fox) travels through time with his pal Doc Brown (Christopher Lloyd). These films follow a logical progression of events that transitions smoothly from one to another, but what’s interesting is that thematically they also maintain a forward progression.

“Back to the Future” establishes the sense of awe at the concept of time travel. In this chapter Marty is catapulted into the past, where he nearly prevents his ow...

Life After Cable: How To Get By Without Cable TV

South Park
There's a scene in Back to the Future Part II where Marty McFly's future son walks up to his massive 2015 wall mounted television and watches six channels at once ("OK, I want channels 18, 24, 63, 109, 87 and the Weather Channel"). Twenty years ago, with the rise of cable television, this is how we imagined television of the future: all at once with too many channels to choose from. But like most of the future tech in 2015 Hill Valley, real technology didn't quite go in that direction.

Here in 2009, the way we watch television is developing around a collective desire to trim some fat fr...
