A fun look at how Pixar celebrates Halloween

This cute animated short looks at Pixar's in-house Halloween culture -- from the crazy costumes their employees wear to the unbelievably cool and completely unconventional prizes they receive for wowing the judges at the annual lunchtime contest.

Be future Marty McFly this halloween

One of the wackiest, most fun movie predictions of the future came from Robert Zemeckis' Back to the Future Part II. The film took 80s trends and cast them forward perfectly! I've often felt ripped off that Marty McFly's polychromatic hat and awesome light up sneakers were never part of every day fashion.

While the wild predictions about 80s fashion permutations have yet to arrive, it is easy to go as Marty this year! Sadly the automatic jacket doesn't automatically adjust to fit, and the hoverboard doesn't hover, but this costumery does look great. I just love the dorky hat, I remember hating it as a kid!

I would rather have Marty's Gibson ES-345.
