Back to the Future Timeline

Bttf.png
Echowood is fascinated with Back to the Future, as he pointed out earlier today. He’s not alone. The three movies have been deconstructed and charted by the chronologers at Wikipedia. This chart is accompanied by an even more detailed explanation. It may take a while to sort through a timeline when the subject is time travel- but then again, there a lot of folks who have too much time on their hands.

Its a small part of History, the subject today at Miss Cellania.

Now, what this nice chart (that misspells the word "lightning"), fails to take into account is the classic Theory of the Two Martys. The TTM says that the original Marty, who lives a crappy life in 1985a, goes back in time to 1955, and returns to a happy life in 1985b. But the Marty who was living the happy life in 1985b also time travelled, and returned to the crappy life in 1985a. So essentially, the two Martys switched places.

Interesting trivia; at the start of the movie, you can see the 1985b Marty way off in the shadows just as Doc gets shot by the terrorist. He's standing near the TWIN Pines sign. Later, we see "our" Marty (from 1985a), arrive in 1985b and watches Doc get shot as he hides beside the LONE Pine sign. I think that's what the sign said. Anyway, it proves the TTM. If there was only one Marty, how could he return to watch Doc get hit at the "Twin Pines Mall" when he himself destroyed the pine tree that led to the new name for the mall which we see towards the end of the picture, upon Marty's return?

In the end, poor Marty from 1985b is now stuck living "our" Marty's crappy life in 1985a, in which Doc is very likely dead. So much for happy endings.
