Back to the Future (Universal 1985)


If my calculations are correct, when you visit my blog on a daily basis...you're going to see and read some serious s--t!

We're going to do things a little bit differently this week on ECM and I think you're gonna like it! Especially, if you are a big fan of this week's movie! I'm going to try to post videos related to this movie throughout the week! Folks, if you have never seen this film before, more than likely you're living under the biggest rock of all time.

I was 10 when my sister and I saw this movie. I remember it was the summer of 1985 and she just got her license (and had a 1978 metallic blue Chevy Nova). She invited a group of her friends to go to the mall to see this movie called Back to the Future and being the great sister that she is she invited her little brother to tag along (or maybe Mom just told her too) .

Anyway, here is the movie synopsis for IMDb...

Marty McFly, a typical American teenager of the Eighties, is accidentally sent back to 1955 in a plutonium-powered DeLorean "time machine" invented by slightly mad scientist. During his often hysterical, always amazing trip back in time, Marty must make certain his teenage parents-to-be meet and fall in love - so he can get back to the future.

The thing I like about this film are the values.

What's the ol' Commandment say? "Honor thy Mother and Father?" Well, Marty helps his socially awkward father realize he can achieve greater things in life! He also shows "dad, dad, dad, daddio" how to win the heart of Marty's mother who, wouldn't you know it, is the most popular girl in school!

I guess in a weird way, Back to the Future is a pro-life movie, too. All of the sudden Marty realizes...well...that he needs to be born! And the only way this can happen is if his parents fall in love.

Apparently, the entire series is now coming out on DVD. I wasn't a huge fan of Parts 2 & 3, but they're still fun to watch! The original, however, is my favorite and I think the whole family will enjoy it!

Here is the trailer...

I've seen one, the original I think, but it's been a really long time.

I like Michael J. Fox as an actor.

I still believe in the flux capacitor.

Oh, and a regularly heard phrase around our house is "Hello? McFly!!"
