Dr. Emmett Brown: "If my calculations are correct, when this baby hits 88 miles per hour... you're gonna see some serious shit". Marty Mcfly's loony friend, Doc Brown, invents a time machine in which Marty is accidentally sent back to 1955, the same year his parents meet. Back to the Future is one of the greatest movies ever made. The movie is hilarious, it's directed magnificently by Robert Zemeckis and the chemistry between Marty and Doc well just perfect.

I finally watched this, at the age of 23. I was expecting a great 80s movie with an amazing soundtrack and cheesey punchlines. This delivered that. I still wish it delivered more. I will chalk this movie up to, what it could have been. Because honestly, it should have been so much more. I enjoyed it and all, I guess I was just expecting something super. Now that I have seen this one, I will see the rest of the Trilogy because I am excited to see them go into the future.

Back to the Future is my kind of movie. With an adventure-feel, Huey Lewis songs and hilarious performances by Michael J. Fox and Christopher Lloyd, this movie shouts surprise around every corner, sprouts one-liners that always work and paces great scene after great scene.
The chemistry between Marty McFly and Doc Brown is awesome, I can buy that these two have been friends for a while.
Zemeckis' direction gives it a hyped feeling of non-stop adventure , but still leaves enough for humor and great dialogue.
The weak link of the film are most likely the visual effects. They weren't very impressive back then and certainly don't hold up now, but I can forgive this minor fault, because there are no more than two scenes involving visuals.
A constant thrill-ride of a movie, Back to the …

back to the future review written by vale wolffian
Back to the Future is one of those films that everyone loves. It is a widely loved series. I think this movie series ranks as one of best series ever made. It is indeed one of most beloved series of all time. It is instant classic form beginning to the end. It could all have been so different. In fact, it could all have been a disaster.
At the end of 1984 director Robert Zemekis, who had been shooting his second movie, Back To The Future, for over a month was not a happy man. He was saddled with a lead actor who just didn't cut it as a happy-go-lucky, wisecracking teen. He was more like an angst-ridden 40-year-old struggling to make sense of existence in a godless universe.To make matters worse he'd seen a young actor perfect …

When an eccentric inventor makes a time machine out of a DeLorean, a high school kid is accidentally sent back to the year 1955 where his presence has unexpected consequences on the future. The film that made both Michael J. Fox and Christopher Lloyd stars, Back To The Future is a perfect blend of action and comedy that takes the old sci-fi chestnut of the time paradox and runs with it making for an inventive and hugely enjoyable family friendly romp. It has loads of amusing pop culture references and pokes fun at society's obsession with gadgets (it's odd to think that 1985 is nearly as far back now as 1955 was then) and has a great sense of nostalgia for days gone by. Fox makes the most of his boyish charm and Lloyd was pretty much made for the part of the mad scientist and the whole …
