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 ›
Highly enternaining with some humour and great special effects makes this a great film. I like the fact that some scenes from Part 1 are incorporated in this movie. This incorporation is what makes this movie very entartaining... especially the scenes where we see two Martys, or two Doc Browns. I would highly recommend this movie!
This sequel of the superb "Back To The Future" is a very earnest attempt to follow a winning formula up with a truly worthwhile effort in this sequel. Complex, yes, but interesting. Unfortunately, at times it gets a bit too mechanically contrived with the time sequence derivations, and I find myself mentally checking the continuity which detracts from the theme. Nevertheless, if you liked the first "Back To The Future" you will probably enjoy this movie. All the characters are present from the original and they are playing multiple generations almost simultaneously. After all, isn't that what a time travel ovie is supposed to do?
Here, Marty's, Doc's and Jen's trip to the year 2015 disastrously skews the past when elderly Biff Tannen steals Doc's time traveling DeLorean and goes back to 1955, where he gives a 1950-2000 Gray's Sports Almanac to his teenaged self. The younger Biff is thus able to wager on sporting events and win every time. He becomes a millionaire at age 21 and soon Hill Valley and nearly everyone's lives are changed for the worst. To put things right, Marty returns to 1955 with Doc. They must somehow get the almanac from young Biff without further altering the past, their present and the future; a seemingly impossible task.
Although not as charming as the original film, this one surpasses it in creativity and plotting. Here, actors must play multiple roles. For example, Michael J. Fox is FIVE characters: Marty at two ages, plus his teen self misidentified as Calvin Klein in 1955, and both his son and his daughter in 2015. B2TF2 has a brilliant script perfectly executed, with precise recreations of entire sequences from the 1985 blockbuster that are simply astounding.
I'm awed every time I see this one.
