Back to the Future Part II opens with credits playing over stock footage left over from Firefox(1982). Alan Silvestri polished and enhanced some of his music cues from the first Back to the Future. Back to the Future Part II treats us to the sight of Marty using a Hover Board. In 1989, some people thought they were real. We also get to see more of the flying DeLorean. There's sight gags such as Jaws 19 playing in a movie theater and a Max Headroom version of Michael Jackson in the Cafe 80's.Read more ›
Hoverboard -- there is a version of the hoverboard that is currently being made in Silicon Valley (California). The movie version of the Hoverboard was auctioned off in London for $33,000.
Automated gas pumps -- these actually DO exist, but they are in Poland.
Flying cars -- current prototypes are being developed in Vienna (Austria), but is not known whether it will become mass produced. Current asking price is $250,000.
Voice control command -- can be used on Smartphones, HDTV's, tablets, or other appliances. Can also be used in newer vehicles. Furthermore, you can even use fingerprint identification to pay your bills (the "selfie pay" is currently being developed). Sadly, doors STILL have doorknobs, so you cannot open them with just your thumb. :(
Drones DO exist!!! Virtual reality (holographic?) glasses also exist!!
Self-parking/self-driving -- currently being developed and may become reality by no later than 2020.
Live chat in real time via video/television screens -- currently used via Skype or other means of social media.
Now, here's what did NOT happen:
No "Queen" Diana -- Princess Diana passed away in 1997.
No Michael Jackson holograms or automated waitresses -- M.J. passed away in 2009.
No dehydrated pizzas ("Hydrate Level 4, please!!Read more ›
It's October 21, 2015! I have been waiting for this day since 1989. And now it's here! I assume my hoverboard will be delivered any minute now...
When this movie came out to follow up what's become an absolute sci fi classic it wasn't widely revered as a good movie. It was largely underappreciated by fans who didn't feel it lived up to the awesomeness of the first film. People in 1989 were just wrong. This movie is awesome.
The future, as depicted by BTTF Part 2 obviously didn't live up to the predictions. No flying cars. No dehydrated pizzas. The Cubs are down 0-3 in the NLCS as of today an unlikely to fulfill that prophecy. But the movie is still relevant as a 'future setting' when watching in 2015 because the predictions are so outlandish that they still look futuristic today.
As for the time travel plot, it's way more interesting than the time travel scenarios of either Part 1 or 3. In those movies the time travel is a simple 1 stop trip to the past then back to the present. In Part 2 it's to the future, then back to the wrong present, then back to the original past then back to the correct present. That's heavy!
I still like Part 1 as the overall better film. But the time travel situation is far more elaborate in Part 2 and it doesn't get enough credit for that.
It's just a good fun sci fi movie that has held up well over time.
There is nothing more iconic than the Back to the Future Trillogy. From Biff calling people Butthead, to Marty McFly never stooping to answer to being called chicken, to all the anachronisms of the future and past, Back to the Future is one of the classics. Every part of this story is wrapped up in itself to all three parts of the movie. The only question left is: How did Marty McFly meet Doc Brown in the first place?
There's not much else to review about this trilogy, being that if you haven't seen it by now, what planet are you from?
