I haven't seen that movie in years! I wouldn't mind finding that one cheap... I didn't even realize that Courteney Cox was in it.

I didn't even realize that Courteney Cox was in it.
For me it's the other way around. Whenever I saw Courteney (e.g. in Friends) I thought "Hey, the girl from Masters!".

And when I began to watch Star Trek: Voyager I knew that I knew that Tom Paris from somewhere but that took me another viewing of Masters to figure it out (this was before the IMDb became a major knowledge harbor).

And Tom Paris from Voyager. And Monica's mother (Friends) is the Sorceress.
The best performance in this movie is of course Frank Langella's Skeletor. Frank Langella will always be the man who played Skeletor, when I see him in other movies or TV series.

But it's a nice track, isn't it?

Yes, I always liked it.

I added it to my list too...the posts here reminded me that I liked it and wouldn't mind having it too.  I know I had meant to look it up before and kept forgetting.

January, 17th


Drew Barrymore    ...    Josie Geller
David Arquette   ...    Rob Geller
Michael Vartan   ...    Sam Coulson
Molly Shannon   ...    Anita
John C. Reilly   ...    Gus
Garry Marshall   ...    Rigfort
Leelee Sobieski   ...    Aldys
Jeremy Jordan   ...    Guy Perkins
James Franco   ...    Jason
Gregory Sporleder   ...    Coach Romano

Synopsis: Josie Geller was one of the nerds in highschool, the kind of girl who asked for extra homework. It was not a pleasent time for her. But now she's an editor at the Chicago Sun-Times and good at her job. But she wants to be a reporter, to write stories instead of reading them. And for this she has to go undercover to highschool again. But neither she nor highschool has changed.

My Opinion: A sweet liitle comedy about a young woman who gets the chance of having a better highschool memory and to finally fall in love with the right guy. Not the best romance I've ever seen but still quite enjoyable.

Michael J. Fox    ...    Marty McFly
Christopher Lloyd   ...    Dr. Emmett Brown
Lea Thompson   ...    Lorraine Baines McFly
Crispin Glover   ...    George McFly
Thomas F. Wilson   ...    Biff Tannen
Claudia Wells   ...    Jennifer Parker
James Tolkan   ...    Mr. Strickland

Synopsis: Marty McFly is an ordinary 17-year-old highschool student in the year 1985. But he also happens to have a weird friend, a scientist who invents a lot of stuff that doesn't work. But this time he has done it. He invented a time machine and he has built it into a DeLorean sports car. But he had to con some Lybians out of their Plutonium and that would become his death sentence. Marty has no choice but to flee before them and he does. The time machine brings him to 1955 where he has to find the Doc again in order to bring him home. But he also runs into his parents and that's where the real trouble starts.

My Opinion: If asked for a top ten movie list, this movie would be in it. I enjoy the entire trilogy very much (and I will continue watching as soon as I finished this review). Marty and the Doc are a great pair and it's fun to watch them. I also really enjoyed the entire idea that a teen could actually observe the teenage years of his parents and see that they weren't that different.
One of my favourite scenes is when Marty disguises as Darth Vader from the planet Vulcan and plays Van Halen music (he was also sent by the Supreme Klingon", but that was cut out, I read it in the novelization of the movie).

And if there's anyone out there who isn't familiar with the story, here is it:

Michael J. Fox    ...    Marty McFly / Marty McFly Jr / Marlene McFly
Christopher Lloyd   ...    Dr. Emmett Brown
Lea Thompson   ...    Lorraine
Thomas F. Wilson   ...    Biff Tannen / Griff Tannen
Elisabeth Shue   ...    Jennifer Parker / Jennifer McFly
James Tolkan   ...    Mr. Strickland
Jeffrey Weissman   ...    George McFly

Synopsis: Doc is back from the future and he has bad news. Marty must help him to protect the future of Marty's children in the year 2015. But not everything goes according to plan. When they return to 1985 it's not the one they have left. Suddenly Biff is a rich and powerful man. Someone has interfered with the timeline and it was neither Doc nor Marty. To solve this they have to return where it started - to 1955.

My Opinion: This was my very first VHS I ever bought, back in the early 90s. If I remember correctly (and I have a memory for numbers) I paid 39.95 DM for it which is - including inflation - about 34 euros today. I don't think I paid that much for my very first DVD (Braveheart).
While I enjoy it a lot, it's still my least favourite movie of the trilogy. Sometimes I jump directly from the end of part one to the beginning of part three which fit neatly together. But as I said it is very enjoyable with the antiques store and the number of close encounters of the same person. Unfortunately it's already 2009 and we have neither holo projections like the "Jaws 19" movie nor hover technology for boards and cars. :-\

What I like best about BTTF 2 is, that they play with alterate timeline.
But I see how BTTF 1 and 3 can nicely interconnect. One of my favorite scenes of the trilogy is the end of part 2/beginning of part 3, where Doc has just send the Marty from BTTF 1 back to future and a few seconds after that, the other Marty comes running up to him:
*paraphrased*
Marty: Doc! Doc!
Doc: Ahhh! Didn't I just send you to the future?
Marty: You did. But I am back! Back from the future!
;D

I just happened to see this: Marty's Future

I like the link in the first comment. I'd never spotted that about the mall: Twin Pines

This is one of the details because of which I like BTTF that much.
