Good read, and I totally agree. One of the best Movies, Ever.
What IMHO "Back To The Future" did that no film I can think of before it did, was put time travel in a personal, and relatable way.
"The Time Machine" considered a distant future, others man with dinosaurs, or, even better, the paradoxes of Time Travel, ( necessary for the plot of "BTTF", and a Lot of Dr. Who ) and it's application to Fate. As In "Terminator", a film that besides being Arnold's acting breakthrough, was ripping good SF as well as a good action movie.
Back To The Future put time travel, and the nature of Progress, on a personal level.
It's not that any one "prediction" is correct, it's that Future Us will be Us and we will take technology for granted, later, that today is ridiculed for being silly Science Fiction.
Which, as we discuss a Movie using a communication system originally designed to bypass the burned out cities left behind by a Nuclear War........ is EXACTLY what has actually happened.
