The future is upon us! Give us our hover boards and self lacing shoes!
Okay, okay, so we haven’t quite gotten to that point in the technology stream yet. Patience is a virtue and Hollywood isn’t always right. And while we patiently wait for hoverboards, self lacing shoes and time travel to become a reality, you can read Caseen Gaines’s book, We Don’t Need Roads: The Making of the Back to the Future Trilogy, to travel back in time and relive the making of the trilogy.
This book is a great overview of the making of the Back to the Future trilogy. Full of personal stories from the set, facts and insider information, it is a quick read that fans of the series and movies, in general, will enjoy. If you haven’t watched the movies in awhile, it will probably make you want to dust off your copies and have a marathon.
When I finished the book I marveled at how the Hollywood machine cranked out 3 quality movies in quick succession. I longed for the days when fans didn’t know about backstage drama and tragedies. There was a mystery about movie making not long ago that is lost in today’s modern world of constant updates via the 24-hour news cycle and social media.
If you are a fan of the Back to the Future trilogy or love to learn about the history of movie making, you’ll definitely want to consider picking up a copy of this book.
