Late for school, Marty is caught by the principal.
Principal: No McFly ever amounted to anything in the history of Hill Valley!
Marty: Yeah, well history is going to change.
This film is part 1980’s cultural landmark and a cinematic rite of passage, usually watched on television as a child. This film is so fondly remembered that if it failed to live up to my memories of it on the small screen I think my heart might have died.
It surpassed expectation. Back on the big screen for its 25th anniversary, seeing Back to the Future in the cinema as an adult confirmed its brilliance.
