5.0 out of 5 stars Watch out for the little things so carefully thought out!
At first glance, and according to some reviewers, 'Back to the Future' is a kids story about time travel. But of course, if you've ever watched it as an adult, you'll know there's far more to it than that.
The storyline is intricately thought out (as with the sequels) and every event and scene contribute heavily. The best thing about BTTF is that you can watch it...

1.0 out of 5 stars What a disappointment
The box set is supposed to contain part 1 + part 2 + part 3 , the one I received has two part 1 and one part 3. Part 2 is missing !
What a disappointment ! Be very careful when you order from Amazon UK.

Otherwise I love the Back to the Future trilogy (that's why I wanted to have the DVD box set !). They are great movies.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Movie, all round fun, 17 Feb 2006
This review is from: Back to the Future [DVD] (DVD)
I really enjoyed this movie. The innocence of the 80's blown up onto the modern world. Marty is a regular 17 year old with ambitions and a girlfriend who dreams for a better life. Only after an accidental trip into the past sends all things AWOL.
In the present Marty is an all round good kid, with a hard working but disfunctional family, but in the past Marty is his Mother's dream idol! It's his job -nay his life- to get his Mum and Dad to meet otherwise he will cease to exist.
Enter Marty's world of humour, adventure, and science-fiction yet hidden beneath this simple comedy lie a manner of other moral tones. I'll let you figure those out.
A great family flick that maybe spoiled by harsh language for a younger audience, but decent fun anyway.

5.0 out of 5 stars First-class Family Entertainment, 7 Feb 2012
This review is from: Back to the Future [DVD] (DVD)
How could this film earn anything less than 5 stars? It's a classic. One of those films you fondly remember, can quote lines from, and watch every time it comes on the telly - like 'Jaws'. The Doc, the Delorean Time Machine, the Flux Capacator thingy, bully boy Biff Tannen covered in horse sh t, The Enchantment Under The Sea Dance, the Chuck Berry riffs, Crispin Glover, and, of course, the oh-so-likable Michael J. Fox. Who doesn't like that guy? Many great movie moments. Is there even any point in explaining the plot? Chances are, you've seen and enjoyed this film yourself many times already! And if you haven't - what the hell's wrong with you? First-class family entertainment that everyone on the planet should see.

5.0 out of 5 stars review of 'back to the future' part 1, 17 Feb 2006
This review is from: Back to the Future [DVD] (DVD)
'Back to the Future', directed by Steven Spielberg, is a Sci-Fi movie about a kid called Marty who travels to the Past.
His friend, Dr Brown, makes a time machine but Marty ends up in the Past by accident. As he arrives to the Past, he meets his parents as teens and Dr.Brown 30 years younger. As Marty learns that his mother has fallen in love with him, he struggles to get his dad with his mum or else he would disappear because he would never be born!
Despite the bad language and the soppiness, this film is great! I rate 'back to the future' a great big 5 out of 5!

5.0 out of 5 stars Back to the future, 17 Feb 2006
This review is from: Back to the Future [DVD] (DVD)
In 1985 Steven Spielberg directed back to the future where seventeen-year-old Marty goes back in time where he finds himself stuck and can't get back!
Marty lives in America with his Mother, Father, Brother, Sister. His friend doc built a time machine but when they are testing it the doc has an accident. And Marty gets sent back in time and can't get back!
I really like this film very much because its action packed and has lots of stunts. It’s quite clever I really suggest this movie.

5.0 out of 5 stars Exquisitly played time travel mayhem, 5 Nov 2009
By 
Marty McFly (Fox) is sent back in time to the year 1955 where he must make sure his parents meet and fall in love, otherwise his existence is in danger.

This renowned Oscar winning sci-fi has everything you need for a entertaining viewing, whether with family or a quiet solo night in. Action, comedy and adventure this ticks all the right boxes and is a film we can look at and say is a fine depiction of time travelling mischief and bravery.

There have been numerous films to attempt to unravel the complexity of time travel. From The Terminator to the Butterfly effect we have robots and unexplained seizures telling a theory on how travelling through the void can happen.

In this 1985 release the complexity of the lexis is weighed down to a comedy level to fit the mood of the moment, and through the wonderfully buoyant Emmet Brown we see his theory of the flux-capacitor and the use of plutonium to achieve the unachievable is brilliant appreciation of the target audience. There is no over the top scientific knowledge as we take Dr Brown as he is an overly knowledgeable protagonist, and doesn't Christopher Lloyd do well?

The star shows a very eccentric style to portray a subtle madness and delicious exuberance to deliver one wonderful mad scientist that gives the film, and trilogy, its main source of comedy and resourcefulness.

Lets not forget Michael J Fox in arguably his most profound role from his illustrious career as the unbelievably cool teen who gets wrapped up in events. Fox's appreciation for cool is never over the top and fits even today's modern teenage stereotype. But to associate him with today would be unfair. He is way too cool for any kind of label. He skateboards, he has an attractive girlfriend, he plays the guitar and drinks Pepsi, what more can you say? He is the coolest kid in time.

Whilst the plot is easy to enjoy and relaxing unconditional fun there is a level of importance of attention to be maintained as the plot's intention of science bases itself on a few key rules. Such as what can alter the future, saying the wrong thing and the difference from the present and the future. All run however thoroughly and with plenty of zest and humour to satisfy any viewer's entertainment requirements.

The opening sequence with the clocks is fantastic panning and good timing (no pun intended) as Marty enters and blasts the stereo. This sets the tone for the coolness of the main character and builds everything around the complexity of time.

This really is fantastic fun with wonderful characters and a springy adventurous minded script that never hinders on the past, not literally obviously. Parts II and III are well balanced fun, but this was where it all started and what a fantastic beginning it was

9/10

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic, 24 Jun 2001
By A Customer
This film is just so believeable that it is impossible to avoid watching repeatedly. In the film, a fact from the past may be mentioned just as a comment by a character and then when Michael J Fox goes into the past, we see a certain thing happen and we remember somebody saying it and that is what makes this film so believable and detailed.
