THANK YOU for making this thread.
I guess one of us was going to!

A few isolated people are up in arms about his comments in that interview re Stevie--but my sole moment of frustration was reading his Back To The Future comment! And the Zemeckis diss! (I think Zemeckis is an awesome director, just like Spielberg can be. Fincher, on the other hand, got a bit tiring in Gone Girl IMO.)

Maybe his main problem with it is that his song got completely overshadowed by Power Of Love?

The thing is, Power Of Love fits perfectly with the movie in a dozen different ways. Ideally, Time Bomb Town should have been used for Part III. But in order to arrange that, Zemeckis would have had to travel back from the future to warn Lindsey that there would be sequels.

Hahahaha! I love this thread and am equally as shocked and appalled, had to read that part aloud to my husband in disbelief

This is only the movie I deem "the best movie ever made"

Maybe he finally watched it after this interview... one can hope. haha

Maybe he's too busy working on his music to watch movies.

He's a polymath (he often draws analogies between his music art and other forms of art (painting, film), and in particular is into film in a big way, so I think it's more that he's dissing Hollywood movies per se.

The thing that surprises me is how he managed to avoid seeing BTTF despite having three kids (including a boy). But I guess it goes to show that in this day and age, families aren't huddled around one TV set in the living room each night watching whatever is on one of five channels.

What?! BTTF is one of my favorite movies, ever. It's fantastic and I've always been so pleased that Lindsey's song is in there. Lindsey needs to see it ASAP!!!

My kids are roughly the same age as LB's and we watched the BTTF trilogy together as soon as they were old enough to understand the concept of time-travel (say, kindergarten..?! ). The first film is pretty much a perfect movie. LB is really missing out!!!

So true! I hope he takes the time to watch it now . I've always loved that his song is included. So funny to me that he never saw it...!

Back to the Future is a great movie, and I too am appalled at Lindsey for his comments in that article!! Not only does this film stand the test of time, but he has no excuse not to have seen it when it came out!

Honestly, that’s a fireable offense in and of itself.

Agreed on this being one of my favorite movies of all time. This should be a thing at all the shows on the next leg. People should have him sign BTTF movies and Advise that he go watch them! And if your feeling bold challenge him to write a song about the movie as homework

Love this thread, too. And while I enjoyed BTTF, I am actually quite pleased Lindsey's never seen it. It jibes with his image that he wouldn't be compelled to see a mass market film like that.

I also wouldn't be shocked if he wasn't completely lying and has memorized the dialogue from every scene but is too ashamed to admit it.

It is on brand. Good point.

(But I'm still shocked... it's such a great movie any way you slice it, and he's on it, to boot! )

that was my first thought when i read his response in that interview. like - come on, it's impossible not to have seen that movie but you just want to be too cool for school! but maybe he doesn't count stuff like movie being on tv while he's in the same room as "seeing the movie"
