I grew up on this movie as a kid in the 90's. Its value and replayability is high for me and I often find myself popping in either the DVD or VHS copies that I own. A true classic. I love it.

This is one of those movies that is simply impossible to hate. I get up and "jam" with Marty every time when he's performing at the dance. I actually have one of the grandfather clocks from the movie too!

I'm really not a "nostalgia" kind of guy, meaning nostalgia never really impacts my decisions on this website. That's a testament to how good this film is. A brilliant and entertaining sci-fi comedy.

One of my all-time favorites growing up, but it still holds up today. One of the very best.

Such a brilliant movie! It has the wit and smarts that makes it impossible for you to smile. The script is very well written and Michael J Fox and Christopher Lloyd give two of the best performances of all time. It simply has the magic of cinema and I could watch it over and over again. Also, Huey Lewis and the News has two songs. That makes it great on its own!

This movie is such a fun ride while watching it but it doesn't give you a long last impression at the end of the days it is just a fun movie which and it doesn't deserve it's #8 spot.
