Blast from the Past: I drew the plot to Back to the Future (which I have never seen)

This was my second attempt at "Movies I haven't seen" and the drawing of the spanking machine still gets me every time.

Here is the story of Back to the Future.

Back to the Future is a movie starring Christopher Lloyd and Michael J. Fox from before he had Parkinson’s. I didn’t know Christopher Lloyd’s name so I had to Google who starred in the movie. So … we’re off to a good start.

In this film, Christopher Lloyd plays a crazy scientist guy.

Michael J. Fox plays a young whippersnapper who apparently is friends with Christopher Lloyd. Not too sure what the relationship is there.

Christopher Lloyd is an inventor who builds a whole lot of useless shit. One of the things he builds is a time machine out of a DeLorean.

Michael J. Fox then uses the DeLorean, which of course is equipped with a flux capacitor, to go back in time to when his parents were both in high school. He does this by travelling at exactly 80 or 85 or 37 or 100 miles per hour and then getting violently electrocuted.

Once in the past, Michael J. Fox befriends his parents. He develops a sick crush on his mother and tries to date her.

However, apparently dating his mother would cause him to not exist, which he finds out by looking at a family picture that he conveniently carries around with him.

So he swallows his Oedipal feelings for his mom and then somehow everything works out between his dad and his mom, and he gets to exist again. But something bad happens to the DeLorean and he has trouble getting ‘back to the future’ (get it??!!). Well, nothing that can’t be solved by driving exactly 80 or 85 or 37 or 100 miles per hour and finding a new way to get violently electrocuted.

He then finds his way home, where he never looks at his mother the same way again.

And Christopher Lloyd builds some more useless shit.

Bam! Nailed it again.
