Or…how Back To The Future should have ended. Time travel is tricky business, especially into the future. After the cut see what happens if someone like myself or Tom had written the end/beginning of these two films.
I can’t tell you the last time I sat down and watched any of the Back To The Future films in their entirety, let alone the full trilogy. But I did just that this weekend past. After the break you can find my thoughts on this 30 year old franchise. Does it hold up? Is this anything more than quota making for my posts so that I don’t have to wash Watson’s car? Probably not, but if you are still interested, read on.
A big deal is being made this year about the 30th anniversary of the first Back To The Future film and the fact that this is the year that Marty jumps to in the future in the sequel. Lots of articles have been written about things that do and don’t exist…and things that may still happen. Hey, if the Cubs win it all, this might be the most prophetic movie of all time.
After the break, see an alternate take on BTTF2 where Marty and Doc arrive in the 2015 that we live in today. (Note, some NSFW language.)
It’s a big year for Back To The Future. Not only is it the 30th anniversary of the first film, but a lot has been made about the upcoming date of October 21, 2015…as that is the year in the future that Marty traveled to in Back To The Future 2: Back To The Futurer.
We also know it has been a HUGE year for Universal with the record breaking success of many films including Jurassic World and Furious 7. And in an attempt to collect any money that you have left, they are releasing a Back To The Future 30th Anniversay Blu-Ray collection on that magical October 21st date.
“But Jimmy, I already own the trilogy on Blu-ray.” Me too little Timmy, me too. But to entice you, Universal is including a new short film starring Christopher Lloyd reprising his role as Doc Brown. You can check out the teaser for the short after the cut.
If not enough to entice you to double dip, be on the lookout for The Complete Adventures box set which includes the 30th anniversary set and the complete animated series. “There was an animated series Jimmy?” Apparently little Timmy. Apparently.
