It’s always bugged me that the shout Doc Brown makes at the end of Back to the Future II isn’t quite the same as the one he makes in the same scene in the first movie. I can certainly understand if Christopher Lloyd just couldn’t replicate the noise, but I don’t get why they didn’t re-use the original audio for that bit, or even work the scene to re-use more of the original footage so the shout is the same, and then it cuts to new footage with a close-up while we see Marty running up in the background.

It would have worked better.

As it is, I have never been able to un-hear it.

Clearly, I watched these movies way too many times growing up.

If it makes you feel better, I have the same feeling about the entire opening scene of the godawful Terminator movie that tried to rewrite the '84 film. Same words, different delivery and sound effects, and it was like nails on a chalkboard.

You are not alone, OP, there are those of us who pay attention to these details.

I mean, to me it's more of an issue that Jennifer's actress changed. I know there were some personal issues and the original actress couldn't continue but I always find recasts super distracting, it's one practice in television/movies I don't like even if I like the newer actor, it's still hard to connect them as the same character.

That bugs me, too. The second actress grew on me to the point that I liked her better, but they don't even look much alike and the character doesn't feel like the same person at all.

Still, if they couldn't get the actress, then they just couldn't, but there no excuse for not matching the shout! It's not like the shout had a scheduling conflict!

Good point about there being no excuse for the shout. For as a big as the Back to the Future movies were/are you'd think someone could have fixed that by now but IDK.

Sometimes when actresses are changed I wish they'd do rewrites. I adore Elisabeth Shue but she is very distinct in the way she looks and acts.

But since Marty had changed the future, and Doc now knew about the attack, couldn't that have changed how he shouted?
