A look at the very real impact the Back to the Future movies have had on our culture. What was once a little idea that spawned a tightly-focused documentary has grown into something truly amazing over two years of filming. Back in Time is a cinematic monument to the vastness of the trilogy's fandom. In addition to the footage and interviews revolving around the time machine itself, the crew found that simply by delving into the impact of the trilogy an epic journey began to unfold before them. The crew captured countless hours of footage during filming. From Steven Spielberg to Robert Zemeckis and Bob Gale, to the Sheas and Hollers, and from James Tolkan and Lea Thompson to Christopher Lloyd and Michael J. Fox, Back in Time features interview after interview that simply must be seen.

We actually use the same logic when we go to see movies as we do walking into a casino. We largely know we're gonna get ripped off, but the chance is worth it. If it were any other industry, we would have long ago shut it down and sued everybody. Because if it was cans of tuna, the equivalent would be like every third can had a human finger in it. Movies are so bad now.

I was super excited to see this film being a kickstarter backer being a back to the future fan since seeing it as a teenager. (We will ignore the total failure to deliver digitally and physically the movie on time for backers for this review else it would loose another 4 marks).
The film is an enjoyable romp through the film but is decidedly flat in what it delivers. The first half like all these films just trawls over the making of etc. that has been done a thousand times over and seen in countless TV programs. I was hoping for more in depth analysis but that did not occur.
The second half of the film however is better talking to the fans, it's great to hear from other people with the same passions as you.
Overall it is worth a watch, but not something to keep going back to.
