Cinematic Greats: Back to the Future

Back to the Future - large

THERE WAS A TIME not that long ago when great, original films on a grand scale came out at regular intervals.  Steven Spielberg had a lot to do with it.  Nowadays a great and original movie is more likely to be a small indie.  Thank goodness for Quentin Tarantino — and a select few others — who can still make movies that are big both in budget and in concept.

Everyone should be familiar with the Spielberg-produced megapop masterpiece Back to the Future (1985), directed and co-written by Robert Zemeckis.  But a central aim of my blog is to identify and give due adulation to all the movies I’ve seen in my life which deserve such recognition.  And who knows, maybe there’s someone out there who hasn’t seen some of the most famous blockbusters.  Back to the Future embodies perfection of the sci-fi pop genre.  Considering recent big flops [prior post], it might be a good idea for studios to reexamine classic successes like this one, and perhaps find a little inspiration.  10/10

Back to the Future - still
