‘Back To The Future’ Summary

In Back To The Future, Marty McFly is your typical ’80s American teenager. After his friend and mentor, Dr. Emmett Brown accidentally sends him back to 1955 in a plutonium-powered DeLorean time machine, things get heavy. Once there, Marty accidentally runs into his parents—interrupting the first time they met. Now, he must get his parents to meet, fall in love, and kiss at the Enchantment Under the Sea dance or never be born. Furthermore, Marty must do this by 10:04 p.m. next Saturday night when a bolt of lightning will strike the clock tower; generating the 1.21 gigawatts of power necessary to propel him back to the future!

Hey Guys,

This was great. I thought it was awesome.

Great episode. Look forward to your reviews of the sequels when you get around to them. However, the best person to play Marty’s girlfriend was the original, Claudia Wells. Far better looking than Elizabeth Shue.

I don’t get what everyone sees in this movie. It’s a decent flick but that’s it. Definitely not the greatest ever. If you want to see a good 80s movie, Die Hard is much better.
