    I have to say James, Back to the Future was my fave movie ever!

    And I love the new site! Big improvement over the previous one!

    I like this movie, but I’ll tell you what is wrong with it. If Marty goes into the future, he could never see his older self. Because he would have ceased to exist in the world until he arrived in the future. It would have been as if he just vanished and never would have gotten married, had kids, etc. Make sense? But I still enjoy the movie.

    Killteck’s comment makes no sense hahaha he clearly isn’t thinking 4 dimensionally as Doc would say. If Marty went into the future, he would still exist in the future because in the present he will be returning back to the past in the near future to continue the rest of his life until he grows to become the older self he will become in the future. You don’t disappear from existence in the future when you travel into it because in your immediate future you will still live into said future through your present timeline. Whew! that is a confusing thing to explain

    I guess. You know what, nobody’s got a fucking time machine anyways! LOL

    This is the best of the trilogy !!! The actor who plays Biff (Thomas F. Wilson) is a pretty damn good pop art painter –

      I know this comment is 5 years old, but Tom Wilson not only is a great painter, his stand up routine is freaking hilarious!!! I truly recommend it, especially his “Question Song:” –

    This movie would have been better if Crispin Glover signed on for it. I’m surprised that it wasn’t mentioned in the review. They hired a nother actor to play George McFly who can only be seen very briefly but Glover sued because they used archival footage from the 1st movie during the 1955 sequences. I think it was the 1st case where an actor sued and won because the filmmakers used his likeness from a previous film and didn’t credit him or pay him.

    Great Sequel
    But everytime I think about
    There’s always that inconsistency where Old Biff actually comes back
    to regular 2015 when Doc clearly says, 10-15 minutes later, that going in the future with the changes made from 1955 who follow in 2015

    But then, if it really did, the movie would end with no resolution

    I would love to see a review comparing our current living situation (and its possible development over the next 5 years) to the living situations portrayed in Back to the Future II in Hill Valley 2015. It’s fun to see the differences, and similarities. For example, Even though the movie Jaws 19 never existed, its held in a Holographic movie theatre. And today we are now enjoying entertainment in 3D!, Also, the internet! Think about how significant it is to todays society, and how its non existant in Hill Valley! And how choppy the video screens are in the Cafe 80’s! Was that supposed to be “like” the internet? I could go on… but one thing I have to say….

    Apparently in the first script they went back to the 60’s instead of 55 again, to fix some problem with his parents, but Crispin was being a prick and wanted more money… so they kill’ed em…

  • August 8, 2010 at 12:55 pm

    A kind of confusing plot, but it’s a great movie. The perfect sequel. I always missed the old Jennifer, but Elizabeth Shue is a piece so it’s OK with me.

    “You want your ball back? YOU WANT YOUR BALL? (THROWS THE BALL OUT OF REACH) Well go get it!!!! HAHAHA!” Nice throw too, ACCURATE. I wonder how many takes it took to achieve that.

  • September 9, 2010 at 6:03 pm

    “THEN GO GET IT!” What an asshole, I love it!

    I love this, it really is one of the best sequels ever. I especially like how well it ties together given the complexity. There is one part though that bothers me everytime i watch it, doc tells marty not to let old biff know he’s taken the almanac from young biff, but old biff should know it’s happned as they’re the same person.

    I love the entire trilogy, but something about this film stuck with me most of my life. When i was young, Back To The Future II was new, and they featured the hoverboard in it. the way they did it, and from what I remember about how they advertised the film back then, they made it seem like Mattel had really made a hoverboard. I hounded my mom for the longest time to keep a look out for one, as I thought they were really being made lol. I would still love to have a real, working hoverboard, even at 34, but meh, the logistics, i know now, of making a working one like the one in the movie are extremely difficult, and they wouldn’t be cost effective to make and sell. They’d be too expensive, because they’d be so expensive to produce. Even today. God damn, i hope they finally figure out how to make one some day. I’d even take the pink kiddy Mattel one lol.

    well killtek is right, if you dont return back in time like bacondude1985 mention all should be fine. Time travel is a crazy thing and an awsome plott device, but it dosnt allways makes, for example in the first movie, even if martys father and mother didnt fall in love, he wouldnt dissappear, his family would, but marty would still live.

    I remember seeing this in the theater when I was nine. I have never heard a theater full of people gasp the way they did when the Doc was struck by lightning and vanished. Great moment.

  • November 23, 2010 at 1:15 pm

    as molbani and killtek said, if you travel to the future, you wont see your future self because you havent returned to the present.

    however, there are some followers of the theory that the future is determined beforehand. kind of like terminator with the grandpa paradox.

    anyway, it’s always fun trying to understand time travel, the problem is when you start mixing theories…. like when old biff goes back in time with the almanac. that part is always too weird for me to understand… (without parallel universes)

    The thing I never understood…if Doc Brown knows Marty’s son winds up in jail in 2015, why do they have to go to the future to stop it? Couldn’t he have just told Marty about it in 1985 and then as Marty got older he could’ve prevented it without the crazy time traveling?

    But then I suppose we wouldn’t have either part 2 or part 3 =).

    The real plot hole in this movie is after old Biff gives his younger self the Sports Almanac, he returns to the future that he left, which couldn’t happen. As Doc explains to Marty in the alternate 1985, they can’t go back to the future to stop old Biff, because they would end up in the alternate future, where old Biff should have gone. Marty and Doc should have been stranded in 2015, until Doc could make another time machine.

      Old Biff does return to an alternate 2015…there are several subtle clues. One being Biff having trouble upon his return to 2015.
      As Doc explains, the time line changes around the time travellers anyway. This is why Doc and Marty do not notice anything “different”.

      Hoverboards have existed for years, look them up.

    anyone else notice that at 0:39 when the camera is zooming into the antique shop on the lower left corner theres a box for the Jaws NES game?

  • January 10, 2013 at 12:19 am

    I know the point of the movies is to sit back and have fun. I grew up with these and still love them. However it wasn’t until watching your videos for some reason this came to me. For a long time it bothered me how the business with Marty suddenly hated being called chicken. In the first film he’s clearly like his father about fearing rejection. More likely than not it would have to be a result of altering the timeline. His father was a different man and he must have been raised differently seeing how his parents were changed.

    It is now 2015 and our world still doesn’t look as cool as the movie.

  • July 3, 2015 at 8:27 am

    We have some of the same technology from BTTF’s 2015 in our 2015. We have 3D Movies, glassesless 3D technology (3DS), hoverboards using water pressure and magnetic technology, self-tying shoes (though only from 1 company), Marty’s hat, flying cars (though rare and extremely pricey), gas stations still, video billboards (Times Square), and nostalgia for the 1980’s.

  • October 21, 2015 at 2:36 pm

    If only we had flying cars today. Oh well. At least we have Pepsi Perfect.

  • April 12, 2016 at 3:28 pm

    Sorry, Marty, but the Cubs didn’t win after all.
