Back to the Future

We watched Back to the Future as a family at the weekend. It's one of my top ten films, so I was curious to see what the boys thought. They enjoyed it, and I enjoyed too another time, even though I know the plot well. Three things struck me:

  • The mention of Libyan terrorists was strangely topical.
  • George McFly - Marty's Dad - is a bit like the current Doctor Who. I don't know if Matt Smith has consciously acted like him.
  • Doc Brown travelled 30 years into the future at the end of the film, that's 2015 - so not so far away.
