Not that I ever questioned it, but...

Okay, from the horseís mouth (yes, Iím the horseóer, co-writer, co-creator): We never explained it in the movie. But the history of the characters that Bob Zemeckis and I created is thisÖ

For years, Marty was told that Doc Brown was dangerous, a crackpot, a lunatic. So, being a red-blooded American teenage boy, age 13 or 14, he decided to find out just why this guy was so dangerous. Marty snuck into Docís lab, and was fascinated by all the cool stuff that was there. When Doc found him there, he was delighted to find that Marty thought he was cool and accepted him for what he was. Both of them were the black sheep in their respective environments. Doc gave Marty a part-time job to help with experiments, tend to the lab, tend to the dog, etc.

And thatís the origin of their relationship.

Maybe the future presented in Part II isn't so dated after all.

To start the discussion, there is one thing that has bugged me, in part II.
When old Biff "borrows" DeLorean to visit the past, why does he return the same 2015 he left, if he made some major changes to the events in 1955?

I dunno about you, but this has always bugged me. Theories anyone? (I don't care if they're somewhat "docbrownish", maybe even better that way.)

Am I alone in thinking that it's odd that Finn started the Back to the Future thread here?

And someone has to explain the ad to me. By 2015, we should all be running barefoot. That is truly back to the future.

You're not. When I look back at the posts I made here nearly a decade ago, I find most of them odd.

I think that's a requirement for modhood, honestly.

In other news, it's fun to see Bill Hader in that commercial. Pretty well done overall.

Here's the Nuclear Test Site Ending Storyboard Sequence. Refrigerator's already been replaced.
(1:48) Did Spielberg borrow Jurassic Park's best gag from this too?

Anyone interested in the hoverboard? It's going to be released later this year.

Details



Nope, it doesn't fly, and it doesn't work on water either.

Then you could have left that first question unasked.

Surely there will be some BTTF fans who would be eager to collect a non-functional movie replica. Just as much as Indy fans owning a TLC holy grail.

Nah, the BTTF Holy Grail would be a model of the concept refrigerator.

This is the closest we'll probally get:

I'm pretty sure the storyboard artist also did the Fred and Frank sketches on Letterman in the early 80's.

DMC DeLorean New York City Taxi Cab

Could the Real ‘Taxi of Tomorrow’ Be a DeLorean?


You may have heard there is a DeLorean taxi running around New York. But you shouldn’t count on hailing it anytime soon. The car is the product of photo manipulation that sprung from a student advertising-design competition.

Designer Mike Lubrano was behind the cab concept. He said the car, which looks like the “Back to the Future” movie vehicle painted yellow, “exists nowhere outside my photoshop files and the jpgs that are circulating around the internet these days.”

I think it's appropriate to bump this today.

Anybody seen the hoverboard on shelves yet?

Hoverboards are not ready for mass market, but do work over water.

As I saw pointed out last night, Back to the Future got it right (from a certain point of view). Since the '94 strike caused the World Series not to be played Back to the Future correctly predicted which edition of the World Series the Cubs would win, they just got the year that edition would be played wrong.

I'm not a big sports fan, but I was watching the game last night. When the cubs won my first thought was "Hey! Bttf was only off by one year!"
