This past Wednesday was October 21, 2015. The day when Marty McFly and Doc Brown traveled to in Back to the Future II. Movie theaters across the country held special screening of the BTTF films while websites displayed a fond remembrance for the franchise.
All of the activity throughout the day prompted me to watch Back to the Future when I got home from work. Maybe it was the nostalgia of it all, but I found myself completely absorbed in the final moments of the film when Doc connects the wires just in time for the lightning to hit the DeLorean and send Marty back home.
At best, I’m a casual fan of the trilogy, but I’ve gained a new-found appreciation for the first film. Forces of Geek.com celebrated Back to the Future with lots of great columns, commentary, reviews, and more.
