Back to the Future (1985)

MPW-25074

A young man is accidentally sent thirty years into the past in a time-traveling DeLorean invented by his friend, Dr. Emmett Brown, and must make sure his high-school-age parents unite in order to save his own existence. (IMDb)

Superbly written: Seemingly inconsequential early happenings gain new significance as Marty’s trip to the past calls them back to mind in delicious deja vu moments and hilarious ironic one-liners (“Better get used to these bars, kid”); the “80s kid in the 50s” aspect provides some great scenes (see the final guitar solo); and the time travel logistics are (mostly) well-constructed. It’s an entertaining and exciting film with great turns from Fox and the hilarious Lloyd (“… some serious shit”).

8.3/10
