Day 21 – ‘Bradley’s Basement’s Advent Calendar 2015


Hello everyone! 🙂

It’s Day 21 of ‘Bradley’s Basement’s Advent Calendar 2015.

Great Scott! Can you guess what I’m going to talk about today? It’s one of my favourite movie trilogies and this year the world has been celebrating its 30th anniversary! How amazing is that, hey?!


‘Back to the Future’ was a film about time travel made in 1985. It starred Michael J. Fox as Marty McFly and Christopher Lloyd as Doc Emmet Brown, and was directed by Robert Zemeckis. It became a movie trilogy with films made in 1989 and 1990. I have fond memories watching this movie trilogy.

I saw the ‘Back to the Future’ trilogy when my Dad purchased the DVD box set back in 2002. My family and I watched this trilogy before Christmas in that year. I was a ‘Back to the Future’ fan in an instant and remember re-watching the three films over and over again during the Christmas period.

My favourite film out of the trilogy is ‘Back to the Future, Part II’. Some of the film was set in ‘the future’ in 2015. This makes it significant as to why ‘Back to the Future’ celebrated its 30th anniversary on October 21st. Click here to read my post about ‘Back to the Future’s 30th anniversary on that day.

I enjoyed seeing the adventures of Marty and Doc travelling back and forth in time in their 1980s Delorean car. It was gripping to see their adventures from 1985 to 1950 to 2015 to an alternative 1985 to 1950 again and to 1885.

I don’t know if ‘Back to the Future’ will continue with ‘Parts IV’; ‘V’ and ‘VI’ like they’ve done with ‘Star Wars’. I certainly would like to see more films with Marty and Doc travelling back and forth in time, but ‘Back to the Future’ works well as a trilogy and is one of the best and one of my favourites.

Thanks for reading.

Bye for now!

Tim. 🙂

      Couldn’t agree more. I greatly enjoyed re-watching this trilogy for the 30th anniversary.

      I like how RTD applies the same time-travel rule-making stories to his era of ‘Doctor Who’. Not sure I can say the same about the Steven Moffat era. Tim. 🙂
