The Past of Back to the Future

“If my calculations are correct, when this baby hits 88 miles per hour… you’re gonna see some serious shit,” said Dr Emmett Brown.

The baby in question is DeLorean DMC-12, and you all can see where this is going…  27 years ago, that is on May 25th, 1990, the final chapter of one of the most beloved film trilogies in the history of the cinema had its premiere. “Back to the Future part 3”. OK, critics-wise, the first part was great, and two sequels had sort of, well… a decaying quality. Nevertheless, the audience absolutely loved all three of them and let’s be honest, that’s what counts, right?

Directed by Robert Zemeckis (famous for “Who Framed Roger Rabbit”, “Forrest Gump”, “Beowulf”…), the trilogy deals with time travel escapades of two friends Marty McFly (Michael J. Fox) and Dr Emmett Brown (always brilliant Christopher Lloyd), and their timeless fight against Biff Tannen (Thomas F. Wilson), his ancestors and offspring.

As expected in a time travel story, the Marty’s and Doc’s greatest enemy is, of course, the temporal paradox. It got better explanations in some other films, but without a doubt, they were never that fun, and that funny.

Bob Gale, the co-writer of the films, explained the whole time-travel thing for “The Guardian”: “It took us a while to work out how Marty McFly would travel through time, however. We knew it had to be an accident. One of the conventions of time-travel movies is that it can’t turn out well if the character is doing it for any kind of personal gain”.

Robert Zemeckis stated for “Telegraph” that “Back to the Future” remake could happen only over his dead body. Correct mindset, because… Seriously, another remake? Part four, on the other hand…
