Lightning strikes a clock tower at the climax of a high-stakes, high-octane cinematic sequence. Bullies run after our 17-year-old hero in a thrilling skateboard chase scene. A late-night test drive fills us with wonder as we first see a DeLorean travel through time, leaving behind trails of fire. These memorable scenes of “Back to the Future” shine their brightest on the big screen — and with big sound. That’s the thinking behind Film Concerts Live!, a partnership of two music artist agencies that is screening movies accompanied by orchestras performing the film’s score live. After screenings of “Home Alone” and J.J. Abrams’ “Star Trek” with live music, Film Concerts Live! is joining the 2015 “Back to the Future” festivities with screenings that spotlight the score by Alan Silvestri (whose film music resume also includes “The Avengers” and “Forrest Gump”). Silvestri wrote about 20 minutes of new music for the concert series, »

With baseball season right around the corner, Major League Baseball teams are currently winding down their spring training in preparation to take their respective fields on opening day. Members of the New York Yankees used some of their downtime to put together a charming video, where a group of adult professional baseball players reenacted a memorable scene from the 1993 classic The Sandlot. The scene in question is where Smalls (Tom Guiry) explains to his friends Benny (Mike Vitar), Ham (Patrick Renna), Squints (Chauncey Leopardi), Yeah-Yeah (Marty York) and Kenny (Brandon Quintin Adams) that they were all playing with a baseball signed by the iconic Babe Ruth.
Of course, it's fitting that New York Yankees players recreated this scene, because Babe Ruth played for the Yankees for many years and Yankee Stadium is, after all, known as "The House that Ruth Built." Babe Ruth is considered by many, including the characters in The Sandlot, »
David M. Evans' The Sandlot is easily one of the most beloved baseball films of the modern era, and strangely enough, it's now is probably a movie that today's Major League players grew up watching. Certainly adding credence to that idea is this new video recorded by members of the New York Yankees, who recreated one of the feature's best scenes.
