Back to the Future

Seeing as the July 4 weekend has just come to an end (even though this year, it took place in the middle of the week), there’s no sense in letting all the spirited sense of closeness with kin and country go to waste. Lets use this week’s entry into our series of Scenes We Love to celebrate one of the all-time great July 4th weekend releases, Back to the Future. Released July 3, 1985 to the tune of a first place box office finish at $11 million dollars, the tale of young Martin McFly (Michael J. Fox) and his eccentric friend Dr. Emmett Brown (Christopher Lloyd) traveling through time to 1955 in an attempt to fix an accidental folly in the time-space continuum, birthed one of the most iconic film franchises of a generation. And within said film are some fairly memorable scenes. Please continue reading as we walk through a few of our favorite scenes from Back to the Future

Back in Time

The Delorean is gassed up, Doc Brown has come under fire, there are some Libyan terrorists bearing down on young McFly and he’s got to escape. He’s got to go back in time. The date is set for November 5, 1955. And away he goes…

“Think, McFly. Think.”

The great setup of the relationship between poor George McFly and Biff (Thomas F. Wilson). I’m told that if you meet Thomas F. Wilson on the street and ask him, he’ll beat you up just like he did George. (Also, do you guys remember Pepsi Free? I don’t…)

You Leave Her Alone

George McFly’s greatest triumph is one of Crispin Glover’s most excellent scenes. “No Biff, you leave her alone…” Doesn’t every man want to be able to have that kind of hero moment?

“It’s an oldie where I come from…”
