• It’s 2015, And Here’s What “Back To The Future II” Got Right And Wrong

    Full disclosure: the Back to the Future trilogy is my all-time favorite movie collection. In fact, Back to the Future II is my favorite of the three films. Even my Twitter bio pays homage to the time travel sequel.

    I cannot tell you how many times I’ve watched those films.

    There were several predictions made in Back To The Future II, as the movie was set in the year 2015. Many of the predicted technologies haven’t been invented yet.

    Like clothes that would automatically adjust to the size of the person wearing them. Nike shoes that come complete with self-lacing shoestrings. However, 2011, Nike did release 1,500 pairs of the Nike Air Mags, the fictional futuristic sneakers Michael J. Fox (Marty McFly) wore in Back to the Future II.


    There are still no flying cars. Although, there are a lot of people trying to make their automobiles take flight.


    The Cubs haven’t won the World Series, men aren’t wearing double ties, and we don’t yet have hover boards.

    However, nearly every American household has a flat screen TV.

    Video calling is a thing thanks to Steve Jobs. The Apple inventor also made biometric scanning a reality. Google Glasses even allows you to accept phone calls from your face.

    In all, Back to the Future got a lot right. And now I’m going to pop some popcorn and watch the classic film.
