Back to the Future (1985)

So today I decided to watch the Back to the Future trilogy. While I may have seen each movie once in full, it's also possible I've only seen bits and parts of each film (the various movies were on over-the-air broadcast every now and then).

Marty McFly (Michael J. Fox)
Dr. Emmett Brown (Christopher Lloyd)

But honestly, I don't remember much about the series, so I might as well say I've only seen bits and pieces of it.

In any case, I enjoyed the first movie. It had a good mixture of uncertainty, action, excitement and sci-fi.

In addition, the movie depends very little on time travel and the suspension of disbelief holds firmly throughout.

Lorraine Baines (Lea Thompson)

Overall, I would definitely recommend this movie to almost anybody.

Instant Comments:
I started the film up, but then I momentarily forgot what I was watching, and so during the opening credits I briefly wondered why there were so many clocks.
Hehe. Plutonium.
Lol. That huge amp literally blows him away.

George McFly (Crispin Glover)

Ha. His girlfriend is right there and he's checking those girls out.
"30 years ago, lightning struck that tower and..."
"What are you looking at butthead?"
"That was so stupid! Grandpa hit him with a car!"
The vanity plate is OUTATIME.
88 mph.

Nov 5, 1955. When Doc invented time travel.
The Lybians.
Exactly the same scene plays out back on Nov 5, 1955 between his dad and Biff.
With pushing his dad out of the way of a car and his mom attracted to him, I guess the Futurama episode 'Roswell that Ends Well' was more of a parody on Back to the Future than I thought.
"Better get used to these bars kid."

Biff Tannen (Thomas F. Wilson)
"And he could sleep in my room." Squeezes his thigh.
"Parents are probably idiots too. Loraine, if you ever have a kid that acts that way, I'll disown you."
"1.21 gigawatts!?!"
@55 min: "Back to the future!"
Hah. If he's the youngest, shouldn't he disappear first?
Hahaha. "There's that word again, 'Heavy'..."

Darth Vader from Planet Vulcan.
Hehe. He makes a skateboard out of the kid's scooter.
Hehe. "Shiiiit!"
That's an awesome skateboard scene.
"Hey you! Get your damn hands off her!"
"Marty, I'm almost eighteen years old. It's not like I never 'parked' before."
One of the guys is wearing 3D glasses.

Jennifer Parker (Claudia Wells)
"Who you calling spook, you peckerwood?"
"Earth Angel (Will You Be Mine)" [by The Penguins, released 1954, performed in the movie by Marvin Berry & The Starlighters*]
What? She's calling his name!!! Oh, there he goes.
"Johnny B. Goode" [by Chuck Berry, released in 1958, performed by Marty McFly & The Starlighters*]
The guitarist with a cut hand was named Marvin Berry and calls his cousin.

I forgot Doc needed to slide down. I thought the last minute save happened at the face of the clock.
"Crazy drunk drivers."

"Marty! You got to come back with me."
"Back to where?" "Back to the future!"

*Harry Waters. Jr (as Marvin Berry). Mark Cambell (as Marty McFLy). Tommy Thomas, Granville "Danny" Young, David Harold Brown, and Lloyd L. Tolbert (as The Starlighters). Tim May (guitar solo in Johnny B. Goode).
