Back to the Future September 22, 2006

Posted by Shujath in English, Movies, Reviews.

This much loved adventure classic by Robert Zemeckis is something I checked out very recently. This story is about a teenager Marty (Michael J. Fox) who goes back into time accidentally through a time travel car created by a mad-scientist kind of character Dr. Brown (Christopher Lloyd). In the past he has a task on hand….to make his parents come together to protect his own existence in the future. But there is a slight problem….his mom (who is a teenager now) is more infatuated with Fox than his would be father. The rest of the movie is about how he achieves this and comes “back to the future”. This film was produced by Steven Spielberg so you’ll notice his style of filmmaking sprinkled all throughout. I would put this movie in the league of E.T in the sense that both of these have true crowd pleasing moments aplenty and a wonderful background score which I truly felt were the major strength of both these movies. Michael J. Fox and Christoper Lloyd are the life of this movie….it’s really hard to imagine this without these two. On the whole, this is a delightful movie which will be relished for generations to come.

I watched this sometime back and enjoyed it very much. I really enjoy the idea of time travel and I wish I had watched it when I was a kid because it would have been so much more fun. Robert Zemeckis (Forrest Gump, Cast Away, Who Framed Roger Rabbit) co-writes (with Bob Gale) and directs this fun film. The plot is very interesting and making a time travel film with very few loopholes is an enviable task. The whole idea of harming the very cause of your existence is highly amusing. Also, the climax is appealing with the whether or not he will get “back to the future” gimmick. Michael J. Fox and Christopher Lloyd are lovable as Marty McFly and Doc Brown. Zemeckis scores with his brilliant imagination and ingenuity that is the highlight of the film. At the end of the film, you end up wanting more (and you do get more with the two sequels developed later). This is an enjoyable film for everyone.

Looks Michael is doing well so far having Parkinson. When I first heard he had the disease, I thought he’d be dead in a few years. Glad to hear he still kicking and making a difference in the world.
