And now - some BTTF rantings

Marty is dead. The kind of overpressure that would throw you back 15 feet only to be stopped by a solid object would likely kill you. At the very least his eardrums are perforated and he should be bleeding out his ears.

Wanna know why this is a good movie? We’ve met all the main characters, we understand a lot about their motivations and flaws and are already getting to the heart of the story in less than 20 minutes.

it should also be noted that Doc Brown is a science handyman, a 24 hr science handyman at that.

“DR E. BROWN ENTERPRISES”

“24 HR SCIENTIFIC SERVICES”

“Yes is this Dr Brown enterprises? Yes I’m having a little trouble with the 2nd law of thermodynamics I was wondering when you would have time to come over and take a look at that. Next friday. hmm, can you make it sooner, my system keeps gaining energy and I don’t know why! Great. Okay. See you then.”

Reminder that Doc brown is in the DeLorean at this point...how did he get in?

Doc brown doesn’t into Remote controllers.

first off, the radio is turned off as noted by the power meter top center. Second he commands the car to go into reverse by moving the right stick right. Maybe he just maps his controller funny? (keeping in mind that wasn’t a thing then).

Nope, when he line locks the DeLorean (line lock!) he pushes the right stick forward.

Another great shot of a completely turned off controller. Sidenote: I have the 2 channel version of that controller still, the Futaba Attack-R. I’ll just say we’ve come a long way.

More importantly is this question: How?! The DeLorean is a stick shift as clearly shown several times in all movies. how is he shifting? how does he get to 88 in a single gear? What magic did he work on the crap v6 and transmission to be able to do remote control burnouts in a gear that can also do 88 mph?

Plutonium - dangerous, scary and highly radioactive.

Until it’s in the reaction chamber you have to wear full radiation suits and take extreme precaution. That single pellet could easily kill you.

These? oh don’t worry about the thin production case of several plutonium pellets just like the scary one we got all dressed up to put into the car that I kicked open with my foot...they’re fine.

So what’s Marty’s plan here? Drive around in circles until it’s time to crash into a photo booth? remembering he doesn’t know he’s turned on the time machine and has no faith he’s about to be transported back in time. seriously, he doesn’t leave the parking lot, and then he goes right for a photo booth hoping that going really fast into it will be a good idea. Also noted that a ill running type 2 wouldn’t keep pace with a stock DeLorean, let alone one that can line lock burnouts all day long then sprint to 90 in a single gear in way less than a 1/4 mile.

Also...2 Libyans. That’s all, just 2 Libyans. Once they crash slowly into the fragile photo booth and slowly fall over the threat of reprisal from Libyan Nationalists will be gone. Done and done. No need to check to see if they are still even alive and the 2 man Libyan terror cell is still a threat. After a crash like that are you kidding? Granted it is a Type 2 so maybe.

That’s all for tonight. Think on these. Don’t get me wrong, I realize this is a movie and for entertainment value and that the story is the important thing here. And by the way this story is tight, and the pacing is excellent. You’re never bored and the story is always moving forward even for a 111 minute runtime.

Maybe I’ll do some more complaining on the 50's later. Night.
