    Was watching Ready Player One and the score definitely was reminiscent of BTTF, which makes sense because it was Silvestri.

    I know there are 'lots' of You Tube vids with the themes and musical score pieces on them, but these are great little compilations of the best pieces.....

    It's so fascinating how CLEVER this whole trilogy is with the foreshadowing. Love these movies.

    I would only want to see a remake if they could do it with as much of the original cast as possible but it is impossible to do it justice so they should let it be.

    Hasn't Bob Zemeckis made it legally impossible for anybody to reboot the movies while he's still alive?

    Bob Gale, actually. But yeah, he and Z have been long standing that remakes/reboots are never going to happen.

    I would take another vidoegame, but more of a proper one, and not a point and click like Telltale's. Or maybe an animated movie.

    But nothing live action.

    Zemeckis and Gale both have it set up so their estates will fight any attempt to remake the franchise as well after they have died. By the time BTTF is in the public domain, we'll all be dead and our children dead with their children in middle age at this rate.

    Whilst I'm not a massive fan of reboots and remakes, they don't always have to end badly. The remake of Robocop turned out surprisingly good, if not amazing. As did IT.

    However, Back to the Future is one of those unique properties where lightning really only struck once. Much of it's likeability is down to the cast and their dynamic, but the combination of everything - the score, the setting, the script, etc - just worked perfectly. I just can't see them replicating that in any way that's better than the original, and if they can't better the original, what's the point?

    I'd possibly be open to another sequel but only with as many of the original crew and cast behind it as possible. And given they're all getting on a bit, that's increasingly unlikely.

    Especially with Michael J. Fox's Parkinson's getting progressively worse.

    IMO, there is no way they could get a cast together, write a story and create a film that would be of equal if not better than the original trilogy.
    LEAVE IT ALONE, HOLLYWOOD.

    More like they can't never find a second Michael J. Fox. I've seen some of the original BTTF's footage with Eric Stolz as Marty and it looked god awful. Bet anyone else besides Fox take the role will end up the same

    Eh, given Hollywood's nostalgia-driven desperation these days, I can certainly see Universal salivating at the prospect.

    But even so, they'd do better to just wait a couple years and then make another sh***y attempt at reviving their Monster franchises instead.
