As much as I love Back to the Future, I can't help but notice that Marty McFly is easily one of the dumbest time travelers in popular culture.
lol This was actually kind of a funny read.
In all honestly, I think the recurring time travelers have all been a bit daft most of the time. Don't get me started on Doctor Who and his common inability to properly man a machine that's been under his care and expertise for at least a thousand years. Good read, though. If you play the Back to the Future game, you will see Marty's continued inability to understand time travel.
No one mocks McFly!
Two takes on the first part where Marty is fleeing from the Libyans. Didn't he accidently turn on the flux capacitor while shifting gears? Also... I don't know about you but it looks to me like he intentionally went back in time when he is clearly aiming for that toll booth (or whatever it was) and is afraid to look (As if he's hoping the car does go back in time instead of him purposely crashing into a small building?)... As for the rest... well this movie wouldn't be the legend that it is without the Johnny B. Goode scene. Also Doc probably built the time machine due to his crazy ass nagging, Jules Vern loving, stupid ass wife who in reality is the dumbest of them all.
