As my family has been taking an epic four day college-tour road-trip, my sister and I have spent the hours in the car catching up on cinema thanks to two lovely dvd players fastened to the car seats in front of us. We've watched High School Musical(for the first time!), X-Men, and even an episode of the Dick Van Dyke Show.
But my favorite was easily Back to the Future. I wholeheartedly enjoyed every minute.
Marty McFly accidentally travels thirty years in the past. With the help of his friend, Doc Brown, Marty attempts to get his parents together and return to the present time.
The movie maintains a quick pace, brimming with comedy and earnestness. The humor is on par with films of the comedy genre, particularly recurring verbal jokes and references. And the laughs never distract from the heart of the story that tackles high school issues like bullying, assault, and the struggle to fit in.
The characters were maybe a little flat, but I think the movie accomplished exactly what it was trying to do nonetheless.
Back to the Future is a happy, momentous story that I will be happy to experience again. 4.5 out of 5 stars
