Staff Review

Michael J. Fox smashed his role as Marty McFly creating hilarious facial reactions upon realizing that he has traveled back in time and meeting his parents as teenagers.

Christopher Lloyd as the zany genius scientist Doc Brown left a mark on history for his bulging eyes and stupendous comedic timing.

Michael J. Fox and Christopher Lloyd made the ultimate duo in movie history. Their friendship is an illustration that no matter the age, you can create a friendship with anyone.

Crispin Glover and Lea Thompson were great as Marty’s parents, both in the future and past. Thompson was excellent, growing out of a shy young woman to fight battles. Glover especially was outstanding as the passive George McFly, easily stealing the show.

I don’t want to cross paths with Biff Tannen who was performed so graciously by Thomas F. Wilson. He put his acting abilities to the test creating a genuine bully.

Back to the Future would not be what is without a wonderful cast of actors. To mention a few supporting actors, Claudia Wells, James Tolkan, Wendie Jo Sperber, Harry Waters Jr, and the first film appearance by Billy Zane.

The time-machine DeLorean went through dramatic changes over filming. First, the time machine would have been a refrigerator! The special effects for Back to the Future are incredible for its time. The climax of the movie is one of my most favorite endings that literally goes out with a bang!

Not only does Back to the Future supply audiences with an incredible story, but also an important lesson about being thankful for your family. The story is one of the most important features of the film combined with the well-detailed special effects. The music theme is a noteworthy earworm that gives the film the dramatic flair that it needs.
