Back to the Future is one of the greatest movie trilogies out there, but that doesn't mean it's safe from nit-picking. Without getting into any talk about the logic of time travel, here are the 8 parts that still bother me:
1. Marty missed the entire improved childhood he created for himself.
The end of the first Back to the Future movie seems like a happy ending where everything worked out and his parents and siblings are richer, better looking, more successful people. But this is actually one of the most tragic endings ever. Everyone's life is better, and theoretically Marty has this wonderful and different childhood, but he missed it. He still only remembers the sh*tty childhood he had. He doesn't actually know who these versions of his family members are. All of his memories that have formed his personal identity exist only in his mind now. But, hey, at least he got that shiny new truck.
2. Biff tries to rape Marty's mom, and then she and Marty's dad hire him to work in their home?
It must be some weird power play on George McFly's part that he wants to keep this aging, pathetic version of the man who once tried to rape his wife around to do housework for him, but even if George derives some joy from the arrangement, wouldn't it make Lorraine feel uncomfortable? And it's not even like Biff turned things around and became a good employee. He lies about how many coats of wax he's put on the car, for god's sake! It's almost like lying, bully rapists aren't good people.
This week everyone's talking about Gravity and its realistic depiction of survival in space. However, scientists like Neil Degrasse Tyson are taking to the internet to point out some of the more obvious logical inconsistencies. Turns out he missed a few:
1. NASA analysts would be able to predict a deadly debris field long before it hit their spacecraft.
2. When Ryan cries, her tears float away. However, even in space, surface tension would cause them to remain on her face.
3. Kowalski's subsequent claim that "space tears" contain mystical properties are unfounded.
4. You can't lift up your helmet and drink from a can of Sprite while in a vacuum.
5. Earth is approximately 90 million miles away from the sun. As such, Kowalski's suggestion they "swim on over there and get our bearings" is reckless.
