In the amazing film franchise Back to the Future, a teenager, Marty McFly (Michael J. Fox), and his genius scientist friend Dr. Emmett Brown (Christopher Lloyd) go to the past and the future in a DeLorean-turned-time-traveling device. While the first film from 1985 sees McFly sent 30 years into the past where he encounters his parents and the people they knew as teenagers, the second film, Back to the Future Part II, has McFly sent to the future which just so happens to be October 21, 2015. When the film was released back in 1989, there were many ideas about what over 25 years in the future would look like, and now that we’re finally here, it is a great time to look back on the film franchise that supposed we would be riding around on hoverboards and traveling in flying cars.
