Back to the Future (1985) from Tuna
|Back to the Future (1985) is one of those hugely popular films (Top 250) that have yet to make it to DVD. Others on the list include M*A*S*H and Beverly Hills Cop.||
| As a reminder, the
film stars Michael J. Fox who ends up in 1955, and must locate
Dr. Brown (Christopher Lloyd), inventor of the DeLorean time
machine, to get "back to the future." Along the way, he
meets his mother, who falls in love with him. This threatens his
existence, and he must get his mother and father together. What
made the film for me was excellent detail of the era. In one scene, a
car pulls into a Texaco station, and several uniformed
attendants run out to service the car and pump the gas. This kind of
service was common in the 50, and still existed in some places
in the 60's. (I still have one of my Texaco shirts).
All of the critics love this film, and so do I.
|Scoop's comments in
I sure like the films of Robert Zemeckis, who loves to blend technical wizardry with gentle-spirited fun. Roger Rabbit is also his, along with Used Cars, Romancing the Stone, and Forrest Gump.
Not deep stuff, but enjoyable films all.
Have to agree with the other guys on this DVD timing. Why the hell has it taken so long to get a $400 million dollar film to DVD??
