Back to the Future ~ 1985

15 Aug

Recently when reviewing trilogies I post all of them together in one post and give a review or my opinion of the film. But Trilogies like Aliens, Godfather, and Back to the Future need their very own review, film by film, don’t you agree?

Before his big hit Back to the Future, Robert Zemeckis had written and directed a few outstanding films, “I Wanna Hold your Hand” and “Romancing the Stone” But once Back to the Future hit the theaters, Robert Zemeckis would be known in Hollywood for a very long time.

The ideal for Back to the Future was one that had been played out before in earlier films in the 80’s, Peggy Sue Got Married, but this film differs in that it has become a classic of Sci-fi comedy.

“Back to the Future” is a very smart film that benefits from likable characters and an insightful screenplay. Michael J. Fox accidentally goes back to 1955 in a DeLorean that has been turned into a time machine by the wacky Christopher Lloyd. Now Fox must bring his parents together after he inadvertently changes the future. It is not quite as complicated as it sounds. The film is great fun that seems brand new even over 20 years later. Wow has it really been that long!? A+
