Happy 30th Anniversary, Back to the Future

It seems just yesterday was 2010 and we were celebrating just the 25th anniversary of the film.At the time of the film’s release, there was no other film quite like it. Critics, like the late Roger Ebert said that Back to the Future had similar themes that were comparable to the films of Frank Capra. Ebert also said, “[Producer] Steven Spielberg is emulating the great authentic past of Classical Hollywood cinema, who specialized in matching the right director (Robert Zemeckis) with the right project.”Others called it the “quintessential 1980s flick that combines science fiction, action, comedy and romance all into a perfect little package that kids and adults will both devour.” That was said by film critic, Christopher Null.When Back to the Future first released, it spent about 11 weeks at the number one spot at the box office.
