Back to the Future - REVIEW

Film of the Day #85/ 300

Roads... where we’re going, we don’t need roads. Robert Zemeckis’ 1985 timeless masterpiece Back to the Future, is ultimate cinema gold. One of the best popcorn movies ever made, its ingenuity, time-travelling twist ups and wonderfully vibrant characters resonate in ways few films ever achieve. Back to the Future accelerates with wit, ideas, and infectious, wide-eyed wonder. Its irresistible combination of dazzling effects and sly comedy propelled Michael J Fox to stardom and Robert Zemeckis to the front rank of Hollywood directors. Back to the Future is a polished piece of old-fashioned fun that carries on when many of its so-called betters have succumbed to the whims of time. So if you haven’t already taken a ride in the time-travelling DeLorean with Marty, Doc and Einstein, I highly recommend you find yourself some plutonium, research a gigawatt and accelerate to 88 miles per hour. Only then will you understand the power of love I have for this classic movie.
