Back to the Future

Two years ago, if someone had said 'Hey you should watch Back to the Future!', I would have said 'No way.' Why? Because I hated the 80s. I still do, because I believe the world could have been a better place without brightly coloured leg warmers and those hideous banana clips. But most of the movies were half decent in those days. There, I said it.
Marty McFly (Michael J. Fox) is just a normal everyday teenage guy with a pretty girlfriend and his whole life ahead of him. He is friends with a mad scientist, Dr. Emmett Brown (Chistopher Lloyd), who has just invented a time travelling machine. Marty jumps in and before he knows it, he is living in 1955, and every thing is so so different...
One word to describe Back to the Future? 'Cool'. It is cool because most of the stuff in it is so out of this world that it's cool to watch. I can't really see a better example of humour that we just don't seem to have anymore. Michael J. Fox was cool. The effects were cool. The imagination was cool. In other words, everything about Back to the Future is cool. I don't hate the 80s so much now.

You mustn't be afraid to dream a little bigger, darling.
