Back to the Future is about whatever the opposite of the Oedipus Complex is... 'what if you saved your dad's life and then your mum wanted to have sex with you'. amazing.

Back to the Future ~ minute four
Alright, so Marty enters and throws the key back under the doormat.
An obvious place to hide a key? Maybe, but since nobody in town dares to step near the garage Doc doesn´t worry about that. He knows that Marty is the only one to come in there, so he just leaves him a key, in case Marty wants to come in and Doc isn´t there.
Again, such a wonderful aspect of their friendship. Doc knows about Marty´s dysfunctional home life and that the teen sometimes just spends time in his lab, even when the inventor himself is out somewhere. The garage is a safe and familiar place for Marty, somewhere where nobody is fighting or drinking or whatever. Somewhere where he´s got someone to talk to, someone to hug and a fluffy dog to play and cuddle with. Who needs something else?
He calls out for his friend again, but still no answer. So Marty just steps in and closes the door behind him. With a commment on the dog food ("jeez, that´s disgusting") he kicks his skateboard with his schoolbag on it and it rolls under his bed, where it meets...a box of plutonium. Oops. So we know where the stuff is. The pacific nuclear research facility doesn´t. Alright then.
Immediatly after that we see Marty´s hand flipping switches on the GIANT amp.
I swear I could make a whole post on this amp, and one day, no, soon I definetly will.
So, Marty turns some regulators and also a one named "overdrive".
I think he´s very much aware what this means. He just wants to have some fun, although I´m not sure if blowing up the amp was his original intention.
Marty plugs in his little yellow guitar (I find that thing so cute, that tiny music instrument) and moves backwards to hit the stage...er, the lab.

So, that´s my bttf collection. Yes, quality died. I built that damn model of the courthouse thingy myself which took me hours. The clock actually works, it´s from a model of the Big Ben. Of course it´s not the real Hill Valley clock, but I thought it would be cool to have a working clock up there :)
Also, in the first picture you can see a corner of the western union letter. I have some of that stuff from "Back to the Future: The ultimate visual history". It´s an amazing book and I nearly cried when it arrived because I was so happy to get it.
Yes I´m obsessed with bttf I know

Doesn´t make sense chronologically, but I just have to comment this scene right now
That one.
Tumblr media
The expression on Marty´s face always hits me.
The kid´s been through so much. He went back in time accidentally, almost wiped himself from existence and did something nearly impossible by catching a lightning bolt in the precise second. But he failed his most important mission: To save his best friend´s life.
He´s so tired, he should head home and sleep. But he doesn´t, because he´s gotta save the town´s eccentric scientist who noone actually cares about, except Marty himself. And when he thinks that he failed, he´s about to cry.
It´s like he´s gotten shot himself. He´s seen that moment twice now, from different perspectives. The first time he didn´t really have time to think about it, since the Libyans were after him. But even then, we get that moment when the camera shows Doc´s motionless legs lying on the cold pavement, as Marty looks at them. He was in shock, hurt, and in panic. The boy´s constantly on a rollercoaster, no kidding.
The second time he was exhausted from running and the events of November 12th, but that seems like nothing compared to what he´s feeling when he sees Doc get shot. That sad, broken-hearted look always tears me up since I wanna cry with him.
Of course, Doc survived. Yay! When I first watched that movie, I already knew there were sequels and when I saw that moment I was just like: Wait no they can´t kill him off, there are two more parts, what
Which leads to the next question: Dear Robert Zemeckis and Bob Gale, why on earth didn´t you make Marty and Doc hug after Marty discovered that he survived?!

In that first pic, looks like your lovely Dane has cherry eye
she does not actually have cherry eyes! i was worried about this when her eyes started to droop, but so far her eyelids don’t hang down far enough to actually be cherry eyed. though she is still growing and may develop them but we’ll get there when we get there 
it’s actually because she’s very sleepy in most photos that she has that effect, i’m pretty sure the picture that’s directly after that one that i took that day is her head down asleep so she was literally a beat from her head falling so she could sleep lmao

This is not an analysis post or anything of actual substance. Just wanted to share that while taking screenshots for upcoming posts, I took my NEW FAVORITE still.
Tumblr media
Look at this beauty. The absolute terror on Marty's face as he tries fruitlessly to escape the large, silver, death-machine hurtling towards him. The unhinged, nightmarish expression Doc is wearing.

Sometime soon, I’m going to post my whole list of Back to the Future animated series notes and favorite moments, but until that happens, I must share this goofy shirt that the live action Doc wears:
Tumblr media
If you can’t read it, it says “My parents visited the Cretaceous Period and all I got was this lousy T-shirt.”
He had to have made that himself, right?
