Back to the Future

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

 

Back to the Future is a 1985 American science fiction film directed by Robert Zemeckis and written by Zemeckis and Bob Gale. It stars Michael J. Fox as teenager Marty McFly, who accidentally travels back in time from 1985 to 1955, where he meets his future parents and becomes his mother's romantic interest. Christopher Lloyd portrays the eccentric scientist Dr. Emmett "Doc" Brown, inventor of the time-traveling DeLorean, who helps Marty repair history and return to 1985. The cast also includes Lea Thompson as Marty's mother LorraineCrispin Glover as his father George, and Thomas F. Wilson as Biff Tannen, Marty and George's arch-nemesis.

Zemeckis and Gale wrote the script after Gale wondered whether he would have befriended his father if they had attended school together. Film studios rejected it until the financial success of Zemeckis' Romancing the Stone. Zemeckis approached Steven Spielberg, who agreed to produce the project at Amblin Entertainment, with Universal Pictures as distributor. Fox was the first choice to play Marty, but he was busy filming his television series Family Ties, and Eric Stoltz was cast; after the filmmakers decided he was wrong for the role, a deal was struck to allow Fox to film Back to the Future without interrupting his television schedule.

Back to the Future was released on July 3, 1985 and it grossed over $381 million worldwide, becoming the highest-grossing film of 1985. It won the Hugo Award for Best Dramatic Presentation, the Saturn Award for Best Science Fiction Film, and the Academy Award for Best Sound Effects Editing. It received three Academy Award nominations, five BAFTA nominations, and four Golden Globe nominations, including Best Motion Picture (Musical or Comedy). In 2007, the Library of Congress selected it for preservation in the National Film Registry, and in June 2008 the American Film Institute's special AFI's 10 Top 10 designated it the 10th-best science fiction film. The film began a franchise including two sequels, Back to the Future Part II (1989) and Back to the Future Part III (1990), an animated series, a theme park ride, several video games, a number of comic books, and an upcoming stage musical.

The Outlaw Josey Wales

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

 

The Outlaw Josey Wales is a 1976 American revisionist Western DeLuxe Color and Panavision film set during and after the American Civil War. It was directed by and starred Clint Eastwood (as the eponymous Josey Wales), with Chief Dan GeorgeSondra LockeSam Bottoms, and Geraldine Keams.[3] The film tells the story of Josey Wales, a Missouri farmer whose family is murdered by Union militants during the Civil War. Driven to revenge, Wales joins a Confederate guerrilla band and fights in the Civil War. After the war, all the fighters in Wales' group except for Wales surrender to Union officers, but they end up being massacred. Wales becomes an outlaw and is pursued by bounty hunters and Union soldiers.

The film was adapted by Sonia Chernus and Philip Kaufman from author Forrest Carter's 1972 novel The Rebel Outlaw: Josey Wales (republished, as shown in the movie's opening credits, as Gone to Texas).[4] The film was a commercial success, earning $31.8 million against a $3.7 million budget. In 1996, the film was selected for preservation in the National Film Registry of the Library of Congress for being deemed "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant".

Josey Wales was portrayed by Michael Parks in the film's 1986 sequel, The Return of Josey Wales.[5]

Featuring 9 original songs from Benj Pasek and Justin Paul, the film is inspired by the story of P. T. Barnum's creation of the Barnum & Bailey Circus and the lives of its star attractions.

It was released in the United States on December 20, 2017, by 20th Century Fox, seven months after Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus ceased to exist, and grossed over $434 million worldwide, making it the fifth-highest grossing live-action musical of all time.

Help Fight Local Hunger!

Join Morrow County Gleaners and the Morrow County libraries as they help fight hunger!

The Morrow County Gleaners, with help from the four Morrow County libraries, are two-week food drive starting Saturday, September 14th and running through September 26th. Featuring locally themed prize drawings, the event highlights the fact that many families in Morrow County live in poverty and may not know from day to day if they will get the food they need.

A food drive is an opportunity for the community to donate non-perishable items, to be passed along to local food banks. When shopping for items to donate, look for packaging that can withstand multiple moves (plastic jars over glass jars) and that can be opened without any extra tools (pop-top canned goods over ones that require a can-opener). Monetary donations will also gladly be accepted.

Keep in mind that many food pantry clients struggle with health issues like diabetes, so high-fiber, low-sugar, whole-grain foods are better than high-sodium or processed foods, whenever possible. Most requested items include:

  • Pasta and sauce
  • Ready to eat meals (canned: chili, soups (with meat are the best), beefaroni, ravioli, mac & cheese, beef stew)
  • Shelf stable milk
  • Peanut and other nut butters; nuts
  • Canned meats: chicken, tuna, dried beef
  • Canned beans; fruits; and vegetables; applesauce
  • Instant or just add water mashed potatoes
  • Grab-and-go snacks: granola bars, fruit bars; dried fruit; crackers
  • Healthy Cereal and oatmeal
  • Juice and juice boxes

Now all that’s left to do is shop, donate and feel good knowing you’ve helped stock a home with nutritious and filling groceries.
