fiction is so infused into popular culture that few people think of the Back to
the Future movies as science fiction, but with its tales of traveling back into
time it is simply nothing else. (Okay, a comedy with a sci-fi theme then!)
In this one Marty McFly (Michael J. Fox) is caught in the 1950s
while Doc (over-the-top Christopher Lloyd) whose souped-up DeLorean
is the time machine tries to get him back to the present. Or 1985 at least.
clean family fun even as the ultimate Oedipal wish of traveling into time and
meeting your mother and having her fall in love with you is realized. But don't
worry: the movie plays it as "Imagine what it would be like to meet your
parents when they were your age?" No kinky stuff so you can let your kids
watch this with a clear conscience...
