73: “You’re Safe and Sound Now, Back in Good Old 1955” – Back To The Future

Great Scott! We’re back! And we’re discussing one of the most popular movie trilogies of all time. BACK TO THE FUTURE (1985) was an enormous hit straight out of the gate, turning Robert Zemeckis into one of Hollywood’s most sought-after directors and the Delorean into a car people actually wanted to own. The time travel action-adventure is still one of the most beloved films from the 1980s, but now that we’re looking back at it from the future, does the trilogy’s premier installment stand the test of time? Join our debate, and stay tuned for Part 2 later this week!
