REEL FEATURES SEASON 13 TICKET 10
It should come as no surprise that this is easily one of the best movie sequels ever, and actually explores the dangers of time-travel with regards to how dark and corrupt the 1985 that Marty & Doc travel back to from 2015 where the Town is run-down and sleazy all due to Biff's antics from his 2015 version giving Grey's Sports Almanac in November, 1955, as he knows that this would set himself up for life as he would have every sport and racing statistics from 1955 all to the end of the century at the year 2000.
While this is a good cautionary tale of the cons of time-travel at the same time, it comes across as being less than perfect when compared to the original that, I and many others believe to be a perfect, timeless classic.
I enjoyed the 2015 aspect of seeing that it was an idealistic future where everyone is happy and the template that most people think of the future with regards to flying cars, technologically enhanced clothing, and where everything is bright and colourful when compared to the boring, bland, monotone, grunge colour schemes we have these days in movies, fashion, where everything has to be toned down with these muted colour schemes that just honesty seems depressing, especially with the movie filter 2013's Man of Steel has.
I do recall fondly, when it was Back to the Future day on Wednesday October 21, 2015. We had caught up with the timeline from Part 2 and in all fairness, quite a few of the predictions came to pass:
1: We have widescreen TVs.
2: An immense amount of 3D movies
3: Digital devices that distract families at the dinner table
5: Power-lace Nike sneakers.
6: the realisation of Mr. Fusion with the Toyota Mirai that runs on hydrogen gas converted from trash (Mirai translated from Japanese to English means future.)
What we don't have:
1: Flying cars.
2: Self-drying jackets.
3: wearing two ties at once.
4: People still widely using fax machines
5: People wearing their pants pockets inside-out. (that looked ridiculous in 89, and little has changed)
Back to the future is one of the classic movies that I have watched. Michael J Fox, who is old now, is one of my favorite Holywood actors back then. He is so handsome and a great actor of his time. Back to the future is the best trilogy that tackles time travel. How I wish we can time travel in real life. But the fact is, we can only go back from the past through our memory. Let's leave it like that because if we can go back from the past, there might be a lot of serious problems that may arise.
