Here's The Bonkers ‘Back to the Future II’ Remake We All Need
We all love Back to the Future Part II, even though it's super-frustrating to watch Marty and Doc travel to 2015 just to save a bratty teenager from a B&E charge -- they couldn't have swung by 2020 for two goddamn minutes and given humanity a heads up on this bullshit? In any case, while some of the film's biggest fans are cooped up in their homes slowly going nuts like the bad 1985's Principal Strickland, filmmaker Taylor Morden organized Project 88, a fan project recreating the iconic sequel.
The movie was divided into 88 segments and distributed to volunteers. These fans had just one week to recreate their scenes. Like with Star Wars Uncut, Our Robocop Remake, and the phantasmagorical Shrek Retold the result is a crazy hodgepodge of moments, both polished and loveably janky. Some scenes were recreated with puppets.
Another, plasticine, presumably made from melted down corpses of the California Raisins.
Or even as a retro video game -- oddly Marty doesn't spend the entire time attacking police officers with his hoverboard.
And since a lot of people are self-isolating right now, some fans were forced to find creative ways to work solo; like the dude who played Biff opposite action figures, or the person who cast every role with their fingers.
Even I, dear reader, busted out my crayon set and contributed a scene.
Why? Because I'm a huge Back to the Future fan. And who wants to spend quarantine meeting work deadlines and emotionally connecting with loved ones anyway?
