Hello Couchers! So here I am at the internet cafe at the main train station. I have no IC at home. Whhhaaa!!! Our internet is yet to be installed on the 23rd... Gosh! To think that I am living here in Germany. Who would expect that you would still need to wait a long time just to get your internet connection back?
Anyway, I know it's a bit late for TCP but here I am anyway. I really had no time to post yesterday because I was sick. So my sincerest apologies to all Couchers for my absence. This Tuesday's theme is RETRO MOVIES... and when I say Retro, I mean the good old, wholesome 80's movies. Okay? Hehe!
The 80's was a time of many accomplishments. It was also the time when alien and sci-fi movies were the thing. So my pick will have to be Back to the Future. It simply is the finest time-travel film ever made and surely a symbol of 80's movie excellence. Starring Michael J. Fox as Marty McFly, this comedic science adventure film became an international phenomenon, so much so that it lead to the second and third films.
In the film, Marty accidentally travels back in time and learns his family history the best way, by being a part of it! How about that? I would have loved to travel back in time too, if it means understanding my parents and relatives better. Hehe! Marty's adventure in this film is unlike any other. Coupled with a witty, clever and highly developed script and excellent direction by no less than Robert Zemeckis, it is no wonder that this movie is virtually disliked by no one.
If you haven't seen this movie yet, you should! Or better yet, get the trilogy!
That's it for this week's TCP Couchers! Thanks for joining us and be sure to leave your TCP link at the linky below:
