Still makes me laugh out loud - Back to the Future review by RP

Spoiler Alert
31/01/2012

I've been revisiting some older science-fiction films that I've either enjoyed or missed. This is one that I enjoyed – a comedy sci-fi adventure I saw at the cinema over 25 years ago. Has it stood the test of time? Yes. While it's a little dated (who remembers DeLorean today?) it seems to have retained its core humour remarkably well and it still made me laugh out loud. If I have a criticism it is the use of actors in their twenties to play teenage roles – I know Michael J. Fox looks boyish, but he's actually older than Crispin Glover who played his father, and 'Biff' was 26 at the time! I know the film is about time travel, but that's just ridiculous :) That minor irritation aside, I can thoroughly recommend this rather good film. 4/5 stars.

Back to Back to the Future - Back to the Future review by SG

Spoiler Alert
03/03/2021

I worried this would feel too dated or childish to watch with my teenage son, but I should have had faith (even though it was slightly uncomfortable watching the bits with Marty and his mum!). This stood up to the test of time, was full of sly jokes and fun, and had enough tension and action to keep us all involved.

80s Classic Teen/Romance/SciFi - Back to the Future review by GI

Spoiler Alert
31/08/2021

One of the great family films of the 1980s and one of the best time travelling stories too. It holds up really well and remains a real treat when watched today, a glorious mix of teen comedy/romance, science fiction and with themes about bullying and friendship. It's an existential movie that asks you to contemplate that you'd not exist if your parents hadn't met and fallen in love. And of course it's Michael J. Fox' best role as Marty McFly. Marty is a typical teenager who despairs of his weak willed father, George (Crispin Glover) and alcoholic mother, Lorraine (Lea Thompson). He has a friendship with the eccentric boffin Doc Brown, (a suitably manic Christopher Lloyd) who has, against the odds, invented a time machine and built it inside a DeLorean sports car. When Marty helps Doc on its first excursion Marty is inadvertently sent back to 1955 and ends up stranded there. He seeks out the younger Doc for help but also finds that his own future is at stake unless he can get his mother and father to fall for each other. Unfortunately Lorraine seems to fancy Marty much to his consternation and horror. The story is cleverly written with the odd plot hole but who cares this is simply great fun with Marty trying to fit in in 1955 including inventing rock 'n' roll! It's so pleasing that there has been no attempt at remaking this wonderful film because it's perfect as it is and deals very cleverly with the paradox of changing the past to affect the future. A film to rediscover and one to show your children today who will love it.
