Honest Trailer for Back to the Future Celebrates the "Creepiest Blockbuster of All Time"
< >
If you haven't heard, today is Back to the Future Day, or the very same day that Marty McFly traveled to 2015 in Back to the Future part II. So in honor of this most hallowed day, Screen Junkies decided to celebrate the movie that "made everyone who wasn't black want to go back in time" with this brutally Honest Trailer:



The trailer makes fun of the usual criticisms of the series, such as the fact that all of the movies have the same basic plot ("go back in time, beat up the bully, and set up the sequel"), that Doc Brown was a little creepy and performed dangerous experiments on animals (poor Einstein), and that the DeLorean was "one of the most unreliable cars of all time." But the critique that rings most true is the accusation that the first film is the "creepiest blockbuster of all time," as it can essentially be summarized with "Marty tries to molest his mom so his dad can have sex with her." (Whatever, it's classic. Didn't you read Oedipus? At least no one gets murdered in this one.)

But even so, they know that Back to the Future is amazing, if only for everything it got right about the year 2015, from "endless 3-D sequels" to Facetime and 80's nostalgia. It's so accurate, in fact, that "you almost forgive them for tricking you into thinking that hoverboards were real."
