I watched a movie last night and decided that I should do a series of movie reviews. So here we are. I’ll review these movies and post them here! If there’s something you want me to review, let me know so I can watch it, then I’ll post the review here. I’ll do books as well, so keep watch!
Movie: Back to the Future
Plot? I’ll try to summarize. Basically, Marty gets sent back to 1955 in a DeLorean time machine. He messes up his parents meeting, then has to try to fix it before he fades away, messing up space and time. Also, since plutonium hadn’t been found, he has to find a power source to get back to 1985, while trying to save his friend from getting shot by the Libyans.
Shipping? There is some shipping capability, but unless you want to ship Marty with his mother…there’s not much that ISN’T canon.
Rating? 😃 It’s not the best movie I’ve ever seen, that award goes to LOTR, but it’s certainly not the worst. I’d rate it 5 stars.
Merchandise? There’s a video game and likely some figurines somewhere.
Fandom? I have no clue. If there is, it’s probably a bunch of 40 year olds.
Recommended to? I’d recommend this to most everyone, sci-fi fans in particular. I don’t think that historical fiction fans would like this. Actually, they might when he’s in 1955.
Child-safe? I would call it mostly child safe. Biff tries to do, well, you know, with Lorraine. On the topic of Lorraine, she’s a little stalker-y and creepy, and a bit inappropriate. There’s a slight bit of cussing, but it’s nothing too bad. But I would say that over 7 year olds could watch it.
Anyway, I thought it was a pretty good movie overall. The special effects were from the 80s, so keep that in mind if you’re a stickler for that. I recommend this to all of my viewers.
