HBO 9 -- Back to the Future -- Back to the Future Part III

Ninth session: Back to the Future (conclusion)
Marty McFly... everyone is mean to him. Biff is a bully and would be rapist. I tell you, these people are bad, and yet this is a comedy? Add to that, Marty is an impulsive idiot at times. He's the last person who should be put in charge of determining everyone's destiny with a time machine.

Ah, that word. It is one of our favorite lines from this movie. "I am your density." (snicker)

Another annoying thing I had forgotten about. The older age makeup. His mother in 1985 doesn't look real. She either looks like a cartoon or someone with a severe allergic reaction to something.

A shame. I remember enjoying this movie when it came out, and I'm sure we rented it as a pre-lab to the later movies. But we generally don't like comedies. And though this is an important film, I find the meanness of many of the characters unpalatable today. Too bad.

Back to the Future Part III
Starts at 12 November 1955, two days before my sister Wendy was born, and right near the end of Part I. They don't have Back to the Future Part II. It's as of it never happened. Good, because though I haven't seen it in years, it sucks. Part III is far, far better.

Still, trust Doc Brown with your Old West attire? Bad choice, Clint Eastwood.

We got as far as Clint making it into town, after having been rescued and put to bed... Part III really is working the formula here.

And anyway, when did Hill Valley get located out in the West? There was nothing to suggest that Hill Valley was any further west than Indiana or Iowa.


This evening the PICC line slowed down even more. The IV is supposed to run at 20 drips in 15 seconds and take about two hours. This morning it started at 25 seconds per 20 drips, and settled into 17-19 seconds. But tonight it started at 30 seconds and only worked up to 25 seconds. It took just about three hours.

I've called it in to the Spectrum Home Nurses. There is a third type of IV flush, beyond the saline and the heparin flushes already in use. It has enzymes to help clear out the blockage -- Drano for IVs. They used it last year, I recall. Might have it tomorrow, I hope, because three hours is unacceptable.
