Marty McFly and The Doc are two of the worlds greatest characters...I'm talking film, TV and books here.

Marty McFly was the archetypal teen, being kept down by the man, and that crusty old Dean! The whole film is feel good to the core. I cannot think of anyone cooler than Marty McFly, travelling everywhere on his skateboard, not qualifying for the talent competition because he wa... read more

Ah, the classic 80's time travel movie, definitely my favorite of the time travel genre. While watching this movie you can't help but wonder what it would be like to go back and meet your parents, would you like them, hang out, think they're losers?

Kind of frightening really....

Fun adventure, and I'll admit, I always get nervous at the end. Some great soundtra... read more

*** This review contains spoilers ***An aura of ‘cool’ permeates everything about Back to the Future. I could imagine seeing this film when it came out in 1985 (of course I wasn’t alive) and watching Marty McFly riding through Hill Valley on his skateboard while holding onto the back of a truck to The Power of Love by Huey Lewis and the News and thinking to myself, “omg, this is just the c... read more

What your favorite movie (really) says about you.. (57 movies items)

"If Back to the Future is your favorite movie....You have a wondrous and unctuous heart for the fantastic Mr. Fox. You are a sucker for feel good science-fiction (none of that doom-and-gloom Dark City/Metropolis/Matrix stuff). You love feel-good films, and can't help but get riveted by exciting Zemeckis/Spielbergian 80's special effects wizardry movie-making magic. You also root for the underdog, and appreciate getting second chances in life. "

“I love Back to the Future. While having a typical 80s feel to it, which I like, I love how fun, irresistible and original the film is. The special effects are dazzling and the comedy is suitably sly and sophisticated. Helping along the way is a script that is pretty ingenious, the sort of script that has quotable lines and also pokes fun at 1950s icons and lifestyles during the frequent bouts of time travelling. The score by Alan Silvestri elevates the sense of fun to a greater level, the main theme is one of the most memorable themes ever in the history of film, or so I think anyway. Robert Zemekis's direction is very good, and the cinematography, scenery and costumes are also excellent. And I have to mention the acting, Michael J Fox is really appealing in the role of Marty McFly, the ro” read more

" Notes: Even though I did grow up during the 80's, Somehow, I have to admit that I never really felt much connection with this flick though. I mean, sure, it is pretty neat, no doubt about it, but I never thought it was really so mind-blowing and, I guess, it probably had to do with the story. Basically, you have this kid who finds a time-travelling super car.
