What Did “Back to the Future 2” Get Right and Wrong?

Today is October 21st, 2015. That’s the date in the “future” that Marty McFly and Doc Brown travel to in “Back to the Future 2”. So obviously, everybody wants to know if THAT future matches up to the real deal.

The things the movie got right include: Big screen TVs and video conferencing . . . News drones . . . Hands-free video games . . . and Video glasses.

Things we HAVEN’T seen yet include: Flying cars . . . Hoverboards . . . “Jaws 19” . . . and Shoes with self-tying laces. Although, this one MIGHT actually come true today. Nike kind of teased it yesterday.

As for the Cubs winning the World Series . . . That’s to be determined. But the fact that they predicted it nearly 30 years ago and it’s a real possibility is a little eerie. Even if it is a very remote possibility. As it stands now, the Mets only need one more win to shut the Cubs out of the running.

(In an unrelated and deviant note: There’s also a “Back to the Future” porn parody in the works. It’s being filmed now for a November “release”. Here’s a non-pornographic trailer. Warning: It contains some mild sexual imagery.)
