Video essay compares the five versions of Hill Valley from Back to the Future.


Throughout the Back to the Future trilogy Marty McFly (played by Michael J. Fox) travels to five different versions of his home town of Hill Valley. Joel Bocko has created a brilliant video essay they takes a look at and compares those various versions. In his video he states that there are four versions of the town, however. I personally think that the two versions of 1985 Hill Valley (real and dystopian alternate 1985) should be counted as two and not one. The various versions are; modern 1985, dystopian 1985, 2015, 1955, and 1885. This is a great look at a brilliant film trilogy.
"Depending when Marty visits Hill Valley from Back to the Future, it might be a frontier town, an idyllic 1950s neighborhood, a sleek 21st-century metropolis, or a dystopian alternate-universe hellhole. This video allows Hill Valley to inhabit all those modes at once, with four screens simultaneously depicting past (distant and recent), present, and future. “Welcome to Hill Valley” explores the ways that fashion, architecture, and behavior have changed, as well as the ways they have stayed the same."
Enjoy.
