25 years ago last night (October 25, 1985), Marty McFly traveled back in time, got his parents to fall in love with one another, traveled forward in time to save his children, then traveled all the way to 1885 to save Doc Brown from dying.  It’s a story that is all full of awesome, and these minimalist posters by Jamie Bolton gives you an idea of how crazy time travel can be.

  1. I like the look of these posters. Simple, and yet with a puzzle-like complexity. Granted, they’re probably a little confusing if you’re not familiar with the movies’ plots, but then again, if you aren’t, you’ll probably go see it on strength of name alone. I wasn’t around when these movies hit theaters originally, but it’s good to see them making a resurgence. 1 and 3 are my favorites, while 2 seemed a bit weaker, relying on a cartoony interpretation of the future. I wasn’t looking for Blade Runner or anything, but it wasn;t what I had hoped for.

  2. Man i love the trilogy. You have to understand this was before the “every hollywood hit must be a trilogy” days, sure there was star wars but it was not the rule. As a result I remember how exited I was when the second movie came out and at the end they came out with the to be continued on the old west. It’s funny how I remember how happy that made me back then.

  3. While I was technically around when they were in theaters, I was to young to go see them. My earliest memory of them was watching them on video with my parents. My favorite back then was part 2 because of their view of the future being different than everyone else. Nowadays I like to watch them all back to back when I can. They are some of my favorite movies.

  4. Boy did I love those movies when they first came out. I even remember when I heard that they were filming 2 and 3 back to back, which was pretty much unheard of at the time (way before Matrix 2/3 and Lord of the Rings trilogy). I will always cherish number one the most, with its excitement and freshness…gotta love Marty McFly.

  5. The movies are made of pure awesome. They captured the time they were made in, and really defined what was “hip” in the era.
    Was is funny today are the places where the second movie was right about the future. The scene with the tower, where all the small cameraes are taking pictures and the the poster at the paperstand changes right away, is so like how we get our news today, with cameraphones that instantly oploade to twitter and other media.

    All in all 4 out of 5 slices of awsomeness.

  6. the original was a shade before my time, although I was alive, I doubt I was digging it as a 3 year old, but I do remember seeing II and III in the cinemas. My childhood best friend and I were totally obsessed with the series. We even had plans of recreating the trilogy on my Dad’s camcorder, but we never actually did it.
