Disney In Depth Banner

Summer is creeping around the corner. Now represents the perfect period to catch up on old movies or those you may have missed. Disney dog-themed movies exist in abundance. What better way to deal with those impending “dog days of summer” than to revisit some classic canine fare, or perhaps catch them for the very first time.

Here are five of my favorites that make me shout “bow wow,” organized according to theme. And no, none of the Air Buddies or Beverly Hills Chihuahua films reach even close to making the cut.

“I’m gonna cut you, white-meat!”

I remember seeing the Class of 1984 VHS tape at the local mom-and-pop video store in my hometown. As a Vestron Video title, there was something inherently dangerous and infinitely interesting about the cover art. If you were a kid in the ’80s, you probably saw the cover art for Mark L. Lester’s film on shelves, with punk rock kids on the cover proclaiming, “We are the future… and nothing can stop us!”

Synopsis: Andrew Norris (Perry King), an idealistic and naive music teacher, has moved into a new community with his pregnant wife, Diane (Merrie Lynn Ross), only to find his new job is an academic abyss. Appalled by the crime-infested school, Norris soon crosses paths with its teenage kingpin, the shrewd and sadistic Peter Stegman (Timothy Van Patten). With Norris setting his sights on reforming Stegman and the young punk declaring war on his teacher, the duo is on a collision course for a fateful showdown.

Back to the Future

This might not exactly a breaking news story automatically worthy of your attention, but it’s Back to the Future-related and we here at Geeks of Doom don’t need any more excuse than that.

If you scroll down to the end of the article you’ll notice a trio of stills from the early days of filming on the original, back when Eric Stoltz was the first actor cast as Marty McFly.

You can check out those pics – along with a few I included just for fun – here below.

A ‘Back to the Future’ Musical Possibly Coming To Broadway?

Back to the Future

When a classic film franchise’s prospects of returning to the big screen have forever dried up, its creators look for any remaining possibility of milking every last cent from the property’s dormant viability. So it doesn’t surprise me in the least that the 1985 sci-fi comedy blockbuster Back to the Future might be the latest beloved film of my youth to be resurrected as a Broadway musical.

Michael J. Fox

Certain movie scenes live in the memory forever. Last Saturday night actor Michael J. Fox took the stage at a charity fundraiser in New York City for research into Parkinson’s disease. At the event, called A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to Cure Parkinson’s, the actor took the stage to jam with the band on a rendition of the Chuck Berry classic “Johnny B. Goode,” just like Fox’s character did in Back to the Future.

‘Back To The Future’ Sneaker Designer Tinker Hatfield Promises Self-Lacing MAG By 2015

Back to the Future II Nike MAG

Pure excitement quickly turned to sheer disappointment recently when it was announced that Nike was going to release the MAG, the actual self–tying sneaker that Michael J. Fox‘s Marty McFly character wore in Back to the Future II, BUT that they would only be releasing a limited 1,500 pairs of the shoe via auction (which, on the first day, were running many thousands of dollars per pair) and they would, sadly, not be self–lacing.

But that does not appear to be the end of it. Legendary shoe engineer Tinker Hatfield, the man who designed this brand new Nike MAG and invented the original Pump sneakers, was on hand at the release party for the MAG and had some encouraging words for those saddened by the lack of self–lacing.

Back to the Future II Nike MAG

It’s very much likely that we all at one point or another have dreamed of those crazy fictional things from the “future” we’ve seen created for movies, TV shows, comics, and video games somehow being made into a reality some day. And perhaps the movie that presented the most fun and intriguing futuristic goodies to bring to life, was of course Back to the Future II.

The most iconic futuristic item shown in the movie would have to be the hoverboard—a skateboard without wheels that hovers a foot or so above the ground—which hasn’t been mass–produced…yet…though one artist did build his own working hoverboard a while back.

But after that, it’s all about the self–lacing shoes that Marty McFly (Michael J. Fox) wore in the movie, called the Nike MAG. And now those very shoes are a reality…sorta. A reality for those of us with a lot of money sitting around, anyway.

Continue reading to learn how you can try and get your own pair of the sneakers, and to see a couple of videos—one of which has none other than Christopher Lloyd returning to the role of Doc Brown!
