So many people would love to have a Back to the Future hoverboard, one that can actually hover of course, but we’re still ways away from that kind of technology. (There was a limited edition hoverboard made by Mattel, one that didn’t float in the air of course.) Yet many people believed a recent prank about hoverboards, so much so that it had to be announced it was a hoax.
The Matrix was an incredible new vision when it dropped in theaters in 1999. Two lackluster follow-ups came after, and the Wachiowskis never regained their footing. Should they go back to the Matrix?
While Gravity didn’t win the Best Picture nod, it won more Academy Awards than any other movie on Oscar night. And appropriately enough, the film got another great nod that was very apropos, from space naturally.
