Back To The Future - Classic 80's Movie
I have to say "Back To The Future" is probably one of my most favourite movies from the 80's. I have lost count how many times I have driven my family mad by insisting that we sit and on watch. I think itâs very clever how they use Marty McFly and the Doc in the three films to cover over 100 years of experiences for the McFly family; from when they first settled in the USA thru to (what was then) the far future - 2015.
The question has to be â Did anyone really think / hope that the world would be like the one set in the second film? So to answer that very question I have actually set that very question below. It will be very interesting to see how the results develop.
For me, I will always remember going to the cinema with my first girlfriend (now wife) to see it. However that was not my only memory of the 'Trilogy'. In the early 1990's we went on holiday to Orlando and visited "Universal Studios".
The very first ride that we went on was the "Back To The Future" ride, which was totally different to anything we had back in the UK at that time. Even till this day, that ride still sticks in my mind!
I still remember standing in the queue, slowly walking up the slopes of the ride, waiting to get, not knowing what was going to happen.
Now obviously, when I sat down to write this article I knew there are numerous sites around on the web dedicated to this subject alone. However I just wanted to talk about a few of the aspects of the movie that I love and are fanatical about.
DID YOU THINK
Did you think, we could live like the movie in 2015?

Back to the future
Now as someone who loves both the classic 80's movie and cars, I'm sure it's no great surprise to you, that I first wanted to mention the famous DELOREAN car or to give the car its official title: DeLorean DMC-12.
Converted by Dr. Emmett "Doc" Brown (Christopher Lloyd) into a Time Machine with the use of the now famous "flux capacitor" and powered by plutonium which Marty McFly uses to escape from Doc Brown's killers. Hitting 88mph automatically propels Marty back in time to 1955 and so the Adventure Begins.
In fact in future movies we get to see the car converted (Hover Conversion) to be able to fly, which would be used by both Marty and the Doc to travel to backwards and forwards in time.
Back in the mid 80's I actually worked as a decorator in North London (UK) and remember painting the exterior of a house and sat next door on the neighbors drive was an actual DeLorean. Trust me as a young guy who had only recently passed his driving test, seeing the real thing was fantastic. (Admittedly without the Doc Brown modifications).
