Episode 16: Back To The Future

We couldn’t resist leaping to the 80’s time travel classic Back To The Future. As soon as Glenn noticed the composer for The A-Team the leaper was chosen. What more can be said about this film that hasn’t been said before? Probably nothing, but that didn’t stop us taking this on anyway.

Season 1, Episode 16

THE Leap

How did we leap here?

Composer: Alan Silvestri

From: The A-Team

Chosen by:
Crew (Glenn)
Film (Scott)

Alan Silvestri is probably best known for his classic score for Back To The Future, music that is instantly recognisable as from that trilogy when you hear it. But Silvestri has had a very prolific career composing music for many many films over the last 40+ years. Glenn couldn’t resist leaping with him when he noticed he was the composer for The A-Team.

Where are we leaping to?

Actor: Michael J. Fox

To: The Frighteners

Chosen by:
Actor (Mike)
Film (Glenn)

Michael J. Fox is a difficult leaper. Do you go to a sequel? We kind of spoke about those as part of this episode, so where? Teen Wolf? It likely hasn’t aged well. We end up leaping to an early Peter Jackson horror comedy The Frighteners, where MJ plays con-man and friend to ghosts Frank Bannister.
