Twenty-one years later, Emily and I packed a picnic (fried chicken...mmmm) and caught Back To The Future on DVD, projected onto a giant screen at the Hatch Memorial Shell on Boston's Esplanade.
I watch Back To The Future once a year, and it's still fun. Every time I see it I think "maybe this time Marty will grab the case full of plutonium before he flees the Libyans?" After I have a movie memorized like this, I can start to think about the nitty gritty details:died two years after the movie came out, along with the brand name.
- Marty spends a eight days in 1955, but the movie skips over three of those days. What does Marty do for those three days? Sit around the Brown mansion?
- Marty catches his father in a tree, peeping with binoculars through a bedroom window. I think we're supposed to think he's peeping on his future wife Lorraine Baines, but I've never thought it looked like her, and we never see the face of the topless woman. Am I the only one who always thought it was just a random woman? We only see the exterior of Lorraine's house in that one shot, so it's impossible to confirm it's the Baines house.
- While I'm dwelling on this topic: if it is Lorraine in the window, does Marty ever connect the dots that George was peeping on Lorraine? Maybe we don't see the woman's face in the window so that they can save the reveal of Marty's future mother for the following scene that evening when Marty wakes up.
