Back to the FutureΒ  (1985)

Storyline: When fleeing from Lybian terrorists, Marty McFly goes back into the year 1955. There he meets his mother and dangers his own existence by interfering with how she meets Marty’s dad.

Actors: Michael J. Fox, Christopher Lloyd, Lea Thompson

My review: It seems like I love films from the 80’s. The Goonies, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, E. T., The Princess Bride, … And Back to the Future perfectly fits into this list of films. I mean, the story and the idea are great and something different and it’s funny. Of course, being in a time where the special effects look like they’re “really happening” it’s difficult to say that they effects are that good, but for the time I guess they were.What I also liked was that you didn’t notice too strongly that it’s made in 1985 because most of the film is set in 1955 anyway.

The characters are loveable (although I didn’t like the Doc that much) or hateable, depending on who it is. I must say, I would have freaked out a little bit more than Marty when I a) go back in time and b) in my case my father fancies me. But okay.

I love the soundtrack to the movie, I’ve actually got the whole album on my iPod. And Huey Lewis (the singer) is in the film (uncredited) telling Marty at an Audition he’s “just too darn loud”. But Marty is actually playing one of his songs haha πŸ˜‰

All in all, a great film, a classic everybody should watch. I’ve watched Part II and Part III but I would recommend just to leave those. They’re not that bad but I just think that ending of the first is perfect. Although it is quite funny to see what they imagined the future to be like when you watch in “the future”.

Something I love about this film: When Marty plays “Johnny B. Goode” and Marvin Berry calls his cousin Chuck. Although it is quite embarrassing πŸ˜‰

Ferris Bueller’s Day OffΒ  (1986)

Storyline: Ferris Bueller is a master of his own kind in getting away from school. But this time the principal is determined to catch Ferris to show what a bad example he is.

Actors: Matthew Broderick, Alan Ruck, Mia Sara

My review: I don’t know how to start. I love it. It’s funny and what I like a lot about it, is that it’s something “new” (well it was when it was made).

The characters are pretty cool, I couldn’t imagine any other actor getting Ferris Bueller like Matthew Broderick. I haven’t seen him in any other films though. And Sloane Peterson (Mia Sara- we didn’t hear much of her after that, did we?) looked really pretty in this although she wore shoulder pads. As for Cameron, I thought he was a little… weird. In a nice way. But I still can’t get used to the 80’s clothes. Whoa. Not good.

I really don’t know what to say about it right now… It’s just awesome, the “Save Ferris” hot air balloon, the dance/sing scene (although it was pretty clichΓ©), all of Ferris’ idea’s. The soundtrack went pretty well with it. The only thing I didn’t think was that funny, was Ed Rooney. I don’t know why, but I just didn’t like him.

Something I love about this film: Charlie Sheen’s appearance. They made him stay up 48 hours before filming to make him look as realistic as possible. Well, it worked πŸ˜‰ But I also love when Ferris plays the clarinette.
