Storyline

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.

Quotes

Dan Harmon: 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.

Decent
22 October 2015 | by Mr-FusionSee all my reviews

"Back in Time" seems to proceed from the best of intentions, and I kinda feel bad for expressing any disappointment. There's certainly a lot of material crammed into this thing, but the movie-intensive stuff seems to be at odds with the fan adulation. I approached this as a fan, so I'd heard the commentaries, read the book, heard Bob Gale tell the same making-of story a hundred times, so a great deal of this doc was a retread. Nobody's fault, but it did seem to tease a behind-the-scenes angle that never really materialized.

On the plus side (and this is primarily if you're fairly new to "Back to the Future"), like I said, there's a lot of stuff here. Michael J. Fox had some good anecdotes, the restoration of the A-car was kinda cool, as well as the Secret Cinema portion. And some of the fan-based material is genuinely touching, particularly the cerebral palsy guy and the cancer survivor.

But really, this is for the general fan, and there's nothing wrong with that. Have at it.

6/10
