Back To The Future - Now In Cinemas

Back To The Future is now back in cinemas for a limited time only. I can't stress how much I still love this film so I went to see it today at the earliest opportunity. I'd happily count it amongst my favourite films, and one that I can watch over and over again, but I've never had the chance to see it on the big screen before. Of course, I've viewed it at home countless times on many different formats (the Blu-Ray gets released at the end of this month, at which point I'll watch all three films all over again), but there was a special joy in experiencing it cinematically.

I'm not going to give the film a full review as I'd hope that everyone on the planet has already seen it, and if you haven't... well I don't know what's wrong with you.

All I'll say is that it looks great with its new digital print, and the sound quality was amazing. I heard background noise that I'd never heard in the film before, cleaned up to pristine condition. I need to check on this, but I'm sure there were alternate takes included in the film too. There were some line readings and some shots that seemed completely different to me, but maybe that was a side effect of seeing it on the big screen for the first time.

Seeing Back To The Future cinematically is almost as much a joy as actually travelling back in time to see it during its original run. Don't hesitate and go and see it before its gone. Check out to see where it's showing locally.
