Back To The Future

with one comment

“…recently a friend noted that if Universal greenlit and released a remake of BACK TO THE FUTURE today and Marty McFly traveled back the same amount of time as in the original, he would land smack dab in the middle of 1980. Let that sink in for a moment.” Massawyrm, Aint-It-Cool-News.com

  1. Not a new phenomenon: I remember e.g. the many discussions in 1984 of Orwell’s 1948 book. The year 2001 seemed almost magical in my childhood, but is already nine years in the past.

    The interesting thing about BTTF is that we now approach 2015 and that the 1955 (let alone 1985) version is closer to today’s reality than the fictional 2015.

    You may want to look into Poe’s “Mellonta Tauta”.
