We all still have mad love for Back to the Future, not just because of the nostalgia for when we first saw it, but because it still holds up very well.

Long time readers of TGD know that a team of dedicated car fanatics have restored the original Back to the Future DeLorean, and BTTF’s screenwriter, Bob Gale, helped bring it all together.

While many screenwriters don't like following rules, they can often be very helpful if applied correctly correctly, and once you learn the rules, well, of course you can always break them.
Back to the Future is apparently going to be hitting its 27th anniversary this summer. Has it really been that long?
Some of my favorite films are time travel stories, including The Time Machine, Terminator, Time After Time, and of course Back to the Future, which thankfully still holds up well today.
