Back to the Future (1985) follows American teenager Marty McFly (Michael J. Fox) as he travels back in time in a modified DeLorean made by his pal, mad scientist pal Doc Brown (Christopher Lloyd). Stuck in 1955, Marty must ensure that his parents meet and fall in love, or else he might never be born! Directed by Robert Zemeckis (Forrest Gump), the film was critically acclaimed and #1 at the box office for 11 weeks.

Back to the Future remains a classic that is consistently named on lists of greatest films - and since Zemeckis is adamant that no reboot will be made while he draws breath, it's likely to stay that way for a good long while.

    Stella Baines: He's a very strange young man.
    Sam Baines: He's an idiot. Comes from upbringing. His parents are probably idiots too. Lorraine, if you ever have a kid that acts that way I'll disown you.

    Marty McFly: Yeah, well, history is gonna change.
