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:TIME TRAVEL UPDATE: My wife and I talked once about how the costumes and sets in the 1985 scenes are designed to be especially trendy, so the contrast with 1955 will be especially sharp. This got me to thinking if BttF will still resonate with future generations? When my oldest son turns sixteen, the movie Back To The Future will be 40 years old. Imagine a movie set in 1945, with zany time travel antics back to 1915. Would I find that funny? The "Pepsi Free" joke in the coffee shop 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?
