“If my calculations are correct, when this baby hits 88 miles per hour… you’re gonna see some serious shit.”
Is there a better Doc Brown quote to describe the literally timeless trilogy written and directed by Robert Zemeckis? The moment Marty McFly was rocking “Power of Love” in a battle of the bands audition with Huey Lewis judging, you knew you were in for a ride.
Today marks the exact date Marty and Doc didn’t “need roads” and arrived in the future. Unfortunately I didn’t fly on a hover board to Starbucks, I can’t bake insta-Pizza Hut in my oven within seconds, and the Chicago Cubs are on the verge of being swept by the New York Mets…but it’s a day worth celebrating regardless.
The Back to the Future trilogy was consistently fun throughout. Michael J. Fox remains one of the coolest dudes on the planet at the age of 54. The hair on your arm still stands when you see a DeLorean. You’re also probably glad Jaws 19 never hit theaters…But what if it did?
While we reminisce and overanalyze all the things the second film did and didn’t predict, I wanted to know which of the 3 films was the consensus favorite. Personally, I would rank them 1, 3, 2…
