Save the Date: October 21st for a Documentary on BACK TO THE FUTURE

by Hugh BrownstoneLeave a Comment

BACK TO THE FUTURE is one of my favorite films (you may notice a poster for it up on the wall behind me in the Bat Cave where I do some of my gear reviews), so I’m excited. Maybe you are, too.

With a DeLorean as a critical character in BACK TO THE FUTURE, you can argue that the film is absolutely dated and locked into 1985.

I’d argue that it is timeless – AND a time capsule for 1985, which makes it doubly wonderful.

Even if you don’t see the documentary, go back and give the original film another go – you’ll love it all over again.

And if you’ve never seen BTTF – wait, that’s not possible, right? – GO SEE IT NOW (ignore the trailer – it doesn’t BEGIN to do the movie justice) [iTunes |Amazon]. You can thank me later.

The Cast and Crew of Back to the Future Reminisce in New Documentary

Via Vulture:

Thirty years ago, director Robert Zemeckis and co-writer Bob Gale introduced the world to the time-traveling Marty McFly, played by an ineffably charismatic Michael J. Fox. The film was a massive hit, introduced such phrases as “Great Scott!” “This is heavy,” and “Roads? Where we're going we don't need roads!” into the pop-culture lexicon, and is, to date, the only film to make a plot involving incest not creepy.


To commemorate the film's 30th anniversary, a documentary featuring new interviews with Zemeckis, Gale, Fox, Steven Spielberg, Christopher Lloyd, and Huey Lewis is coming out. The movie, Back in Time, premieres October 21, the same day Marty lands in the future in the second film. You can watch the trailer below:
