“Last night, Darth Vader came down from Planet Vulcan and told me that if I didn’t take Lorraine out, that he’d melt my brain.” George McFly
I can't believe I waited so long to see this. Was I ailing in the brain? Did I really think it was possible to go through life as a cinephile without watching Back to the Future? Thankfully, I have good friends who knew what I was missing: they sat me down, popped the movie in, and voila! it turned out to be one of the funniest, most ludicrously entertaining things I had ever seen. As another reviewer put it, "Back to the Future is one of the best popcorn movies ever made. It's ingenuity, time-traveling twist ups and wonderfully vibrant characters resonate in ways few films ever achieve." You know the joke: one day you'll grow up to be your parents, and then they'll have the last laugh. Well, this movie takes that joke and turns it on its head - and the results are absolutely hysterical. Michael J. Fox leads a stellar cast, the script is tight and snappy, the pacing is spot-on, and the special effects are just plain fun. In fact, don't waste anymore time reading this review: go watch the movie yourself, and you'll see what I mean.
Rated PG. Iffy for age 14.
