This trilogy needs no introduction. Many have seen Back to the Future. It's one of the most famous time travel movies on the silver screen.
The trilogy is about the time travel adventures of the main characters Marty McFly (Michael J. Fox)
and his friend Dr. Emmett Brown (Christopher Lloyd).
In Back to the Future I, Dr. Emmet Brown has made a time travel machine from a Delorean automobile.
The control of the time machine is the same in all three films. The operator is seated inside the DeLorean (except the first time, when a remote control is used), and turns on the time circuits, activating a unit containing multiple fourteen- and seven-segment displays that show the destination (red), present (green), and last-departed (yellow) dates and times. After entering a target date, the operator accelerates the car to 88 miles per hour (141.6 km/h), which activates the flux capacitor. As it accelerates, several coils around the body glow blue/white while a burst of light appears in front of it. Surrounded by electrical current similar to a Tesla coil, the whole car vanishes in a flash of white/blue light seconds later, leaving a pair of fiery tire tracks. - en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DeLorean_time_machine

In Back to the Future II Marty Mcfly and Dr. Emmett Brown travel to the future to a specific date: October 21, 2015. This day was widely celebrated in social media by people posting movie stills of the display inside the Delorean time machine showing this date.
The date was carefully chosen for one simple reason: It was a day, theoretically, the Chicago Cubs could win the World Series. - www.businessinsider.com
In Back to the Future II there's also some sort of 'prediction' that Donald Trump would run for president.
Back to the Future II screenwriter Bob Gale told the Daily Beast that Marty McFly's arch nemesis, the wealthy villain Biff Tannen, who turns his fortunes (among them, casino) into a quest for political power was...based on The Donald. - www.usatoday.com
On YouTube is an interesting video showing some clear symbolism in the movie Back to the Future regarding the 911 attacks. It's worth watching and make your own opinion about these strange messages shown in the movie.
The Back to the Future trilogy is a very nice series of movies on time travel.
It's a must watch, not only because it's an important part of the Hollywood lineage in this timeline but also because the movies are well made with interesting details.
