Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you already know who Jennifer Lawrence is. But at just 25 years old, she’s an Oscar winner and one of Hollywood’s most bankable actresses (you know, with a humble net worth of 60 million). She’s carried the box-office-busting franchise The Hunger Games and gone completely blue for her role as Mystique in the X-Men series, but manages to stay the whiskey-loving, reality tv-watching, hilarious girl next door we fell in love with. Despite her A-list name, she always seems real. Now THAT is cool.

To celebrate the flick’s anniversary, we took a quick inventory of memorable, cool shit that the July 3, 1985’s release of BttF bestowed upon us. Hop in and re-live the magic.

Back to the Park: Our Official Jurassic World Review (Chill Out, it’s Spoiler Free)


Over here at The Tie Bar, we’re big fans of Jurassic Park—if you follow us on social media, then that announcement will come as no surprise. It’s been a big topic of conversation amongst our home office the past few weeks, both the rehashing of original scenes and speculation as to whether the new chapter will hold up. Seeing as it’s been 22 years since the original’s release and 14 years since the last sequel, we’ve kept our fingers crossed that they would get it right. Rest easy, because Jurassic World is the sequel that Jurassic Park fans have been waiting for.
