Eighties teenager Marty McFly is accidentally sent back in time to 1955, inadvertently disrupting his parents' first meeting and attracting his mother's romantic interest. Marty must repair the damage to history by rekindling his parents' romance and - with the help of his eccentric inventor friend Doc Brown - return to 1985.
'Back to the Future' is wonderfully simple in its set-up and it is perfect as an adventure for the whole family, since the movie plays itself safe though super cool at the same time.
Since then I've popped it in regularly alongside Back to the Future and today I'm struck with the peculiar thought...
Imagine if this was the first time I'd ever seen this movie.
I don't even remember my first time seeing BTTF and I've seen it so many times that I feel the effect has seriously worn off on me.
