It was year 1985 when "BACK TO THE FUTURE" was shown here in Manila, but I wasn't able to watch it on the big screen. It became an international hit and it was the highest grossing film of 1985. I've watched all Trilogy on BETAMAX and I could still remember those times when you can borrow Betamax Tapes here in Manila for only 5bucks. A film written by Bob Gale and Robert Zemeckis and directed by Zimeckis himself, it's about a High School dude portrayed by MICHAEL J. FOX as MARTY MCFLY who had an automobile that could do Time Travel. The plot of all sequels was very interesting because different Time Zones were involved that included the 1800s,1900s and the year 2000 specifically 2015.
And who would forget scientist "Dr. Emmett Brown" better known in the trilogy as "Doc" was portrayed by CHRISTOPHER LLOYD. Of course, LEA THOMPSON who is also favorite among 80s people here in MANILA with her role in "TOP GUN" and one of my favorite NEW WAVE inspired film classic "SOME KIND OF WONDERFUL". Getting the DVD releases of this trilogy gave me a chance again to watch and relieve the excitement of TIME TRAVEL. Another memories of the EIGHTIES!!
