Back to Back to the Future

Someone synched up the very end of Back to the Future and the very beginning of Back to the Future II — two scenes which are identical, except that Marty’s girlfriend had a different actress and, you know, they were filmed on two separate occasions. It’s pretty darn cool how hardcore director Robert Zemeckis was for doing everything exactly the same — certainly most directors wouldn’t give a shit.

Hey, here’s a weird question for you — Back to the Future came out in 1985, and part II in 1989. When I was a kid in the late ’80s, I was dying for a BttF sequel, and I remember it seemed like decades before the sequel was finally announced. Was I just a weirdo, or did you all feel the same way?
