[Movie reviews] Nostalgia for the Future-"Back to the Future

in Movies & TV Showslast month


  This retrospective series starts with chatting with friends, she wants to know some science fiction films, the best of which is what ordinary people can understand. After recommending several introductory sci-fi films, the writer got the idea to write this series. Looking back at the more classic science fiction films of the last few years, there are two purposes, the first is to introduce and guide the casual audience, and the other to pay homage to films that have had a lot of influence on us in those years. . This edition brings you the "Back to the Future" trilogy.

Back to the Future

  "Back to the Future" consists of three films, released in 1985, 1989 and 1990. This film series is the result of a collaboration between Robert Zemeckis and Steven Spielberg. After the first film was released, it received wide acclaim, and the second and third films were released one after another, forming a complete series. The film runs in a relaxed and funny style, telling a comedic tale caused by protagonists Marty (Marty McFly) and Dr. Emmett Brown (Dr. Emmett Brown) traveled through time and space several times. As a sci-fi film, "Back to the Future" used special effects that were very avant-garde at the time, and included a variety of popular elements, such as romance, humor, thrill and action. It is suitable for watching together by the whole family, so the American film scene was a little boring at the time. Bring a gentle breeze.

  This year marks the 30th anniversary of the release of the "Back to the Future" film series. Today, two producers at that time, Robert Zemigis and Spielberg, have become very famous filmmakers. Needless to say, the famous Spielberg, Robert Zemigis just said that the name may not be well known to some friends, but when it comes to the film he directed, I think a lot of people are familiar with it- "Forrest Gump", Robert Zemigis won an Oscar for Best Director for this film. The "Back to the Future" trilogy was directed by Robert Zemigis and supervised by Spielberg. It is also a very successful collaboration in film history.

  The content of the film is actually not that complicated. Nowadays, when all kinds of "traversal" run rampant, the subject of time travel is not really that novel, and although the special effects in the film were a really cool visual delight at the time, they are set out today. This is just pediatrics. Readers may have questions. Today, with all kinds of sci-fi blockbusters and tons of investments bombarded today, what advantage does this 1985 film have that we should review and watch again? While the "Back to the Future" trilogy is not a timeless work in film history, the series influenced entire generations of people at the time, and we have reason to study and revisit the factors of film success. Second, because the budget left the big scene when shooting started at that point, and shifted to the comedy and humor path, it worked too. On the other hand, nowadays there are a lot of sci-fi blockbusters piled with money, but lost to Java after seeing them. The impression is not deep, and the impact is not much. What's missing in today's science fiction films? You can also look for it in this film. Lastly, the trilogy "Back to the Future" also occupies a relatively high position in the history of science fiction films, how can you let him go as a science fiction fan. What's missing in today's science fiction films? You can also look for it in this film. Lastly, the trilogy "Back to the Future" also occupies a relatively high position in the history of science fiction films, how can you let him go as a science fiction fan. What's missing in today's science fiction films? You can also look for it in this film. Lastly, the trilogy "Back to the Future" also occupies a relatively high position in the history of science fiction films, how can you let him go as a science fiction fan.

  In general, regardless of the type of film, it's sure to have a good and good start, if not, what's the reason for making a follow-up? "Back to the Future", to be precise. The script and setting of the first film still influence many films of time travel and traversal.

Back to the Future

  The plot of the first part of "Back to the Future" is very simple. Dr. Brown asks protagonist Marty for help with the experiment. In the experiment, Dr. Brown was killed by bandits. Marty rides a time machine back in a panic 30 years ago, and the journey begins. After Marty returned to 1955, his parents' meeting was accidentally affected. At this time, Marty was having two problems. One is finding Dr. Brown in 1955 to repair the time machine, and others are trying their best to match his parents to prevent Change the future and make yourself disappear. At the end of the film, Marty succeeds and returns to 1985, but at the same time, his life changes, his parents' personalities change and life gets better. Many friends who have watched the film will complain about the many theories and flaws that don't make sense in the film, for example in the film, when the car is driven up to 88 kilometers per hour, time travel can be carried out with enormous force, just like in real-world physics. . How did it happen. But I don't think this is a very "serious" time travel film. There are theories that support time travel in our real world. Just to explain this theory, we have to pull a series of scientists out to tell you one by one. According to current theories, time travel requires enormous energy support, far from relying on modified cars and nuclear fuel alone. Other than that, The time travel which is supported by the theory is in fact different from the time travel mentioned in the film, in fact even though we can go back in time, it is impossible to change anything, or return to another parallel universe. Therefore, this film is not a serious film based on absolute theory, but a popular sci-fi film with a comedic hue, the opposite is "Interstellar" which was released last year. The author specially invites famous scientists to conduct theoretical basis. the opposite is "Interstellar" which was released last year. The author specially invites famous scientists to conduct theoretical basis. the opposite is "Interstellar" which was released last year. The author specially invites well-known scientists to carry out the theoretical basis.

  Putting aside the time travel that hovers over the theory of reality in the film, just talk about the plot, in which the director and screenwriter have done more thoroughly and perfectly, and there is no meaningful omission. The plots are intertwined, and even leave a shadow for the sequel. As far as the first part is concerned, the ending is more satisfying. If you just shoot this one with no follow-up, there's no problem with the ending. On the other hand, in today's film industry, there are many films that need to be studied, instead of piling up money, hiring handsome men and beautiful women, and making lots of special effects, you could say that the film is good. To make a film, you have to get serious. The plot is full of flaws. The film apologizes first to the audience, but to themselves.

  Even though the film's title is "Back to the Future", the plot actually goes back in time. The main story takes place in 1955. Why did you choose 1955? In 1955, the Great Depression in the United States was over, the economy boomed, and the lives of the rich. It can be considered a "golden age". The next generation of young people seemed to be looking forward to that era. In the film, the director and editor do not arrange violent and discordant scenes, but rather teenagers have a happy life and positive attitude. The 1960s and 1970s in the United States were full of confrontation and contradiction, which brought too much trauma to entire societies. Only gradually recovered in the 1980's. It's possible to leave behind such memories. The director and screenwriter made such a setting, Marty goes straight back to 1955 from 1985. Dialogue between the two eras and the gradual restoration of society has allowed Americans to regain their confidence and dignity. This is also reflected in another classic "Forrest Gump" produced by director Robert Zemigis in 1994.

  The first part of the whole "Back to the Future", whether it's Marty or Dr. Brown, or any other supporting role, the characters are well formed, and the shows are there too. As a sci-fi film with a light comedy style, this is sufficient. . Compared to today's over-packed films, the "Back to the Future" show 30 years ago was much simpler, devoid of the drunkenness and materialism, and a little simpler and plain. When we study and work all day, come home to watch a simple and fun movie, we get that rare relaxation, so I recommend this "Back to the Future".

Back to the Future


  One day, the editor asked me a specific date for a trip to the future in "Back to the Future," because many years have passed since I last watched it. I checked the clip again and found it was Wednesday, October 21 2015 at 4:29 PM Calculated this way, not far from the day when Marty and the doctor came into the future for the first time. In fact, loyal "Back to the Future" fans are looking forward to this day, even creating a special clock to count down this special day.

  Following the topic of the previous issue, this issue mainly addresses the second part of this series. Unlike the former, the latter had a brief "journey" period into the future, so we followed the beautiful imaginations of the 2015 producers into the future. When the audience thought the film "Back to the Future" was fake, the director threw Marty McFly and Dr. Emmett Brown goes back to 1955. Following the first part of the plot, Dr. Brown rushes to find Marty and takes him to 2015. The reason for this time travel is to save Marty's future children. Who knows if things go wrong for the Bifu villains to take advantage of the loophole and go back to 1955 to change history. When Marty and Dr. back in 1985, they found that the situation wasn't right. So both of them go back to 1955 to correct history. Maybe the plot is like this. As far as the story goes, there is no problem at all. The previous plot was also taken full advantage of in the film, and the first scene and shadows were used to the maximum. In this regard, the director and screenwriter have undoubtedly worked hard.

  There are four eras in this film, the first is 1985 when the first film appears at the end, the second is 2015, the third is 1985 when Biff changes history, and the last is the first. 1955, the difference is that the second one appeared in 1955. That was the second time Marty returned, so there were two Marty in this era. How, it's a bit big, I won't explain too much here, the film is handled very well, friends who are interested should watch it live to understand better. The second part of "Back to the Future" can be considered a real-time travel film. Since then, many films about time travel have been borrowed from this film, such as "Black Hole Frequency (Frequency)", "Life Remote Control". "Click" and so on.

  Since there are short scenes from the future in the film, which is 2015 based on 1980s technology, the director and screenwriter imagined many of the future scenes, so how many of them will come true? Let's take a look at a few.

  1. Speeding When Dr. Brown came looking for Marty for the future in the first film, he drove at speed In 2015, speeding and highways in the air was common, but in reality, we didn't realize it. There are auto enthusiasts who specifically manufacture triple sea, land and air vehicles, and they also have wings. It's not the kind of very simple design that shows up in the movies. We still have a long way to go.

  2. The suspended skateboard The suspended skateboard in the film is a children's toy, which has become quite popular, but has not yet been realized in today's reality. Although some scientists have made magnetic levitation skateboards, they can only be suspended 2.5 cm from the ground, and there are many limitations, such as having to be above specially made ground. We also didn't notice floating skateboards.

  3. 3D holographic projection technology In the film, Marty only comes to the future and is "attacked" by a shark in the "Jaws" sequel trailer. Marty complained that the great white shark wasn't real enough. Currently, 3D holographic projection can be achieved under limited conditions.

  4. Wearable Technology Wearable technology has become hot in recent years, such as Google Glass, Apple Watch, etc. Basically we were able to achieve this lens on film, but its popularity was not enough.

  5. Video call There are video call scenes in the film, now video calls are basically not a problem, almost any device with a camera can be implemented.

  6. Unlocking with fingerprints In the past, Jennifer used fingerprints to unlock doors when she opened the door at a later date, in fact in 2015 fingerprint unlocking has become an adult and is commonly used in electronics such as cell phones.

  7. Clothing that can be adjusted by yourself In the film, Marty has arrived in the future. Dr. Brown gives clothes and shoes to Marty. The size of the clothes can be adjusted by yourself, and the clothes can be dried and cleaned, and the shoes will be automatically tied. In fact, some people have invented smarter clothes that can control temperature and have gotten smarter, but there is no automatic plot drying program and no auto size adjustment function. Shoes Although NIKE returned to playing a shoe in the 2011 film, it does not have the function of tying shoelaces automatically, but is equipped with an LED screen and an automatic rechargeable battery. It is said that the power-carrying shoe will be launching this year, let's wait and see.

  There are so many technologies in films that we haven't realized in reality, also many things that appeared in 2015 that weren't in films, such as smart phones, ultra-thin and large LED screens and so on. If Dr. Brown and Marty actually appeared on October 21, 2015, I don't know if they will be shocked by the world, or they might "scoff" at our technology because we haven't reached time travel yet.

  In the era of film releases, this futuristic technology is already in great demand, but in the eyes of modern society it's not that cool. In addition, the sequels to this series are not easy to make, let alone the first selling well. The second at the box office wasn't quite as good as the first, and the plot was also a little fragmented due to the continuous rotation of scenes, but in that era, the future view, coupled with the use of a large number of special effects lenses, made up for some flaws to some extent. In my opinion, although this film is not as good as the previous steps, but at a certain level, the efforts of the producers deserve recognition. At the end of this film, Marty finally saves his world that is more complete, but also leaves a tail for the next film. Brown was struck by lightning while driving and disappeared. When Marty despaired, he received a letter from a doctor 70 years ago. Doctors go back to 1885. Time travel will begin again. Predict the future and listen to the next time. See you again.

Back to the Future



  Future means that it hasn't come and hasn't happened yet. If things haven't happened, only we now can influence the outcome. In the "Back to the Future" trilogy, Dr. Emmett Brown said more than once that the future is uncertain, it is created by ourselves. This is also the main theme of this film, from the first film, Marty McFly's fate is always in his hands, and the choices he makes will affect his future. In the third part, not only did Martin have a good understanding of himself, but Dr. Brown and even the villain Biff make choices too, so do they have to have a happy ending? In this issue, we will cover the final installment of the "Back to the Future" trilogy.

  I don't know if anyone has ever done a survey, which character was the most popular in the "Back to the Future" trilogy? I've probably liked Marty for a long time. This is a very standard idol among teenagers. But now, I like Dr. Brown. In this film, Dr. Brown changes his old rationality, becomes romantic and gentle, and finally finds love. The third part of the plot immediately follows the second part. Dr. Brown, who was struck by lightning, disappeared into the stormy night sky. Within minutes, Marty received a letter from a doctor 70 years ago. Currently, Marty who was trapped in 1955 found Dr. Brown in this day and age. According to a letter written by a doctor 70 years ago, he invented the car of time. Marty seamlessly came to 1885, the Western era of the United States, so "

  If the former misses and misses the "Golden Age" of 1955, then the second is mixed with more longing for the future, and the third may be a reflection of the hobbies of directors and screenwriters? Today, it is not uncommon for modern people to travel back to ancient times in television and film circles. There weren't many films like that in the 1980s, and they took a trip back to the Western era where many Americans loved it, and the plot was smooth and seamless. The producer made it up carefully, and the third part also got a good box office.

  There is a very famous film in Western American films, namely "A Fistful Of Dollars" by famous Italian director Sergio Leone, which was produced in 1964 and released in the United States in 1967. The main role was the famous actor and director Clint Eastwood ( Clint Eastwood), and also the trilogy. The last two are "For a Few Dollars More" and "The Good, the Bad and the Ugly)". You may have noticed that when Marty Time traveled to 1885, he was also known as Eastwood, and he had shown marksmanship before. This shows the director and editor's love and obsession with Western films.

  There may be several elements in Western films. There's definitely wilderness, classic shooter shots, prancing horses, and of course action scenes like gun duels. It's in the third part of "Back to the Future." Everything is reflected. Unlike other Western films, this film has our dearest scientist Dr. Brown, the uninhibited boy Marty from the future, and a cool time machine. With this, this film can satisfy the taste of many people. Production parties really struggle, so it's also kind of a skill to "drag" the whole family into the cinema.

  The third film continues the hallmarks of the previous two films. The plot is seamless and basically there are no flaws. Hot when it should be hot, and cool when it should be cold. It looks like these three films were finished together and then divided into several parts. The film was released briefly, but in fact the second and third films returned to the big screen four years after the first film was released, showing that the director and screenwriter are very careful in their plot.

  The "Back to the Future" trilogy and the contemporary "Star Wars" and "Indiana Jones" film series have influenced entire generations of people. They are almost pervasive in people's lives. Later, they did TV series and cartoons, and even took them down. Various different products, only electronic games, have released as many as 5 sets distributed on various gaming platforms, such as Atari ST Computer, Sinclair ZX Spectrum, Commodore 64, Sega Master System, Mega Drive and Super Nintendo. Every film has a novel. The content, characters and dialogue of these novels have been improved. Most of the content added is taken from the original script. Interested friends can find it to read it.

  In the three films, a lot has changed, what remains unchanged is the clock tower. Since being struck by lightning in 1955, the clock tower clock has always stopped at that moment. The clock tower is another indicator that runs throughout the series. The first part, Zhong Marty, donated money for the restoration of the clock tower. This clock tower is what brings it back to 1985 in 1955. In the third part, Marty and Dr. Brown even watched the construction of a clock tower. The appearance of the clock tower represents time. It could be moment or eternity. At every moment, we are faced with countless choices. Each choice will have a different future. From this perspective, the clock tower has been separated from the simple film props into a symbol of time, a symbol of the future, and also responds to the name of the film "

  At the end of the film, the doctor says that the future is not destined, the future is created by ourselves, we can grasp every moment of ourselves to create a better future. The title of this manuscript is Lost to the Future Since we have never been to the future, how could we possibly miss it? The first meaning is to pay homage to the film series "Back to the Future". We love and miss this film. Another implication is that our future is created by ourselves. We cannot change the past and the future is still uncertain. Better to hold on to the present to have a better future. Let us yearn for the beautiful future created by ourselves, hold on to the present, and live in the Now.
