Back to the Future, Part II – 1989 – dir. Robert Zemeckis

It’s somehow pleasing to see variations on a character or motif, and I’ll admit right away that after a few days of thinking about it, I still can’t figure out why. What I do know is that when Marty McFly is enlisted for a trip to the future at the outset of Back to the Future Part II, it’s deeply satisfying to see his hometown of Hill Valley redone in its 2015 incarnation, with so many landmarks and people intact but also all futured up.
