10 Awesome Fan Theories That Improve The Back To The Future Movies
6. It's About Reproduction
While this theory doesn't improve the quality of the movies themselves, it certainly adds an interesting spin to them - and that theory is that Back To The Future is a metaphor for sexual reproduction. It's quite convincing, given that it's based on a number of things; the flux capacitor itself looks like a uterus, the time machine needs to be entered by a virile young man in order to function, the product of the activity is the "birth" of a number of different timelines/versions of people and all of it is being overseen by a "doctor". It could just be a huge coincidence, but fans may have just discovered what the movies' creators were going for (although why they would actually do this is a complete mystery).
