Netflix is unfortunately the only place to see the Amazing Stories episode Go the Head of the Class. It's inseparable in my mind from the trilogy. Directed by Robert Zemeckis in 1986, music by Alan Silvestri, written by Bob Gale, starring Christopher Lloyd. (Then cruise over to Mummy Daddy from season one for a great Spielberg impression by Bronson Pinchot and music by Danny Elfman.) Happy Halloween! http://www.netflix.com/WiPlayer?movieid=70083675
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.
OK, this thread is for all kinds of discussion for one of the true modern-day classics, the BTTF series. I personally think those movies are great & fun and hold some memorable quotes, (but there are some flaws too)...
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 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.”
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.
