But when the two return home, they soon discover someone has tampered with time to produce a nightmarish Hill Valley, 1985. Their only hope is to once again get back to 1955 and save the future.

    At the moment of it being 2010 now, it seems as though the makers of this movie went a little too far ahead of themselves. A lot of the technology seen in this movie in 2015 won’t be happening for like another 30 years or so.

    first, how did they get the entire begining as exactly how the first movie came to a close by having Elizabeth Shue replace Claudia.

    second. how did they manage to everything back the way it was for showing scenes from BTTF at the dance from another point of view. (i.e. Extras, set, lighting..etc)

    if it’s the year 2015, shouldn’t it be "The Present" for them? that’s like saying if you go out in the streets right now and tell someone be careful in the future but since the future is here you should say "Be careful in the present" the cop had no idea she came from the year 1985

    How many days do you think passed for Doc from the time he left Marty at the end of the first movie until the time he came back to Marty and Jennifer at the beginning of the second? By that time, he had already converted his car to a flying car, bought a bunch of futuristic clothes, found out a lot about Marty’s future and what went wrong, and obiously traveled further ahead than where they end up in 2015. Plus, didn’t Doc pull out a briefcase with a ton of American dollars from different eras in U.S. history once he got back to 1955 with Marty later in the movie? If I had to guess, I’d say it was at least a month. What do you think?

    The original thread lasted for almost 6 1/2 years (23.07.2003 – 11.01.2010) on this board, wich seems to be one of the oldest active threads around. It had to stop after 600 posts and can only be read now, before it vanishes completely in the near future. All I can say is, thank you very very much for contributing and keeping it around for so long!!

    So, to keep it alive, please post here. Help it survive a little longer. Thanks!

    Here’s the original text:

    OK. I don’t know if someone already recognized this:

    Marty and Jennifer NEVER EVER could see their older self in BACK TO THE FUTURE II. It is impossible! Remember, when Doc takes Jennifer and Marty to 2015, there will be no longer a Marty and a Jennifer in 1985. They have their future in the time machine. I mean, Marty came back from 1955 on Saturday, October 26th 1985. Jennifer appears and Doc too. All three travel to 2015. So all three

    do no longer exist in 1985. For example on Sunday the 27th 1985 (a day later), all three are gone, really gone(!) and can’t see themselves in 2015. Because they are no longer in Hill Dale in 2015, they are in the time machine in 2015.

    They can’t be at the same place twice!!!

    When all three travel from 1985 to 2015, the time line skewed creating an alternate 2015. So not the 2015 we see in the film. A 2015 where Marty, Jennifer and Doc don’t exist. So they aren’t married and they don’t have children. And of course no problems with them. So the whole BACK TO THE FUTURE II wasn’t necessary. Not even BACK TO THE FUTURE III.

    At the beginning, Doc returned from 2015, because there are problems with Martys children. He need Martys help. But only Doc could help Marty. He alone can solve the problem. When he takes Marty and even Jennifer with him to 2015, there are no problems because there are no children of Marty and Jennifer. So, problem’s solved!

    I hope anybody get my problem here. What do you guys think. By taking Marty and Jennifer to the future, there wouldn’t be a Trilogy. There would be just BACK TO THE FUTURE I. I hope you understand what I say.

    I don’t know if this has been mentioned before, but has anybody ever wondered why the Doc isn’t curious enough to find out what happens to him when they travel into the future!? True he is supposed to be an older man, but I would still want to know if it was me!

    Just a thought…

    Personally part 2 of Back to the Future is my favourite because that’s where it involves the most time travel. Marty and Doc travel from 1985 to 2015 then back to alternate 1985 and then to 1955. Part 1 was mostly set in 1955 and part 3 was mostly a western in 1885.

    The thing about Marty having a hang-up about being called chicken is really out of place. Was that in the first movie at all? It seems like they just made up that charcteristic to get the plot moving. It seemed really out of step with the character.

    By going back to give young biff the almanac, cos Biff will lead a completely different life thus ‘erasing’ future biff like what happens to marty on stage.

    Yes his life will turn out for the better, but he is still sacrifcing himself, his memories etc..

    perhaps he didnt know and wouldnt have gone back if he knew it would erase him from existence. Also the old Biff should have been erased the moment he gave the book to young biff, Ergo would not be able to go back to 2015 to return the delorian.

    Right, Marty and Doc went to the future to save Marty’s family from utter ruin. But, if Marty went to the future, how could he have lived through the years and actually be present in the future? It’s like he just would have disappeared and reappeared in 2015, with no older self present.

    When Biff steals the time machine he gives his 18 year old self the almanac. We see when Marty and Doc Brown go back to 1985 the damage that Biff has done. My only nitpick is, how come the neighborhood and everything around them did transform when Biff came back to 2015 and died. Marty and Doc should have walked to the Delorian in 2015 and immediately noticed something was not right, that the circumstances of their stay there has changed. Biff’s casino should be there, The older George McFly who was at Marty’s house should have disappeared and been the victom of a time paradox.

    Reviewing this board has shown me that the people here are very fascinated with the paradoxes involved in the concept of time travel. What is the general opinion of scientists involved in that subject? I certainly wish I could travel back to Sarajevo on 28 June 1914 in order to save Franz Ferdinand from assassination, thus preventing WWI, WWII and the Cold War, which in many ways could be considered as the equivalent of WWIII.

    When Marty and Doc successfully save Marty’s son from going to prison in 2015, the USA Today headline spontaneously changes while Marty holds it. If this is possible, then, when Biff steals the DeLorean to deliver the almanac to his younger self, Marty and Doc’s memories would be instantly replaced by those of the alternate 1985 – which would mean that Marty would not be baffled by bars on his windows or locks on his gate when he arrives back home there. In fact, they wouldn’t have returned gone to that house at all.

    In 2015, old Biff steals the Delorean to travel back to 1955 to give his younger self the sports almanac. Somehow, old Biff successfully completes this task and manages to return to 2015 with little to no issues. However, how did old Biff have any idea how to properly operate the time machine? How would he have known how to operate the time circuits and set the time to go back? How would he have known that the DeLorean has to reach eighty-eight miles per hour before it engages in time travel? Old Biff also failed to refuel Mr. Fusion before going back.

    After Biff steals the DeLorean and travels back to 1955 with the Sports Almanac the movie states that he creates an alternate time line. Doc Brown does a good job of illustrating this on a chalk board. So if, as Doc Brown states, Biff created an alternate time line, then when he travels back to 2015 wouldn’t it be the year 2015 on the alternate time line?

    When Marty and Doc arrive in 1985a, all that was once clean and wholesome about Hill Valley, a small, quiet American town, was gone. Nothing that was good in 1985 survived into the alternate reality. Hill Valley in 1985a was a dark, dirty, crime-riddled slum of city.

    I believe that Old Marty is trying to play the first few notes of the “Power of Love” by Hewey Lewis and the News, but is having trouble because his hand was broken in the drag race with Needles thirty years beforehand. Young Jennifer would recognise the song as she heard young Marty play it at the Battle of the Bands the day before (October 25, 1985). I think Huey Lewis’ cameo in that scene is hilarious as he says their song is “too darn loud”, the irony of course being is Lewis created that song!
