Back to the Future

Spielberg's Role: Executive Producer
US Release Date: 1985

In 1985, Steven Spielberg brought us one of the most well panned comedies of the 1980's. Back to the Future was one of Michael J Fox's first movie roles, and Christopher Lloyd's big break.

The trilogy is amazingly well planned and seems to seamlessly flow from the original to the sequels. The Epic type story has caused a cult following, involving a cartoon series, a ride at Universal Studios and a demand for a fourth movie.

In the first movie, Marty McFly goes back in time, and must find his way back to 1985. While in the year 1955, he bumps into his parents and keeps them from meeting. He has to fix all these problems while looking for a source of 1.21 Jiga-watts (that's allot of electricity).

References to styles, the storyline and original songs by Heuy Lewis make this the movie of and about the 1980's.
