has stood the test of time and remains a favorite among audiences…and it ain’t the DeLorean.Speaking with Variety, Michael J. Fox said that the odd and off-kilter elements of Back To The Future are what make it so popular. You know, like incest.
“There’s still something about it people respond to because it is so weird…Not being crude, but it is a movie about almost f*cking her mom and she was totally ready for it. Even at the time I thought it was bizarre – plus Lea was cute.”One plot point, of course, comes from Back To The Future
when Fox’s Marty McFly returns to 1955. There, he meets a younger version of his mom, played by Lea Thompson. She develops a passion for Marty without knowing who he is. This puts his existence at risk. All that over some plutonium!Following becoming the highest-grossing movie of 1985, Back to the Future went on to garner four Academy Award nominations, winning for Best Sound Effects Editing. Back to The Future
also received four Golden Globe nominations. Fox was nominated for Best Actor in a Musical or Comedy. The film was the start of a franchise. The first film was recognized by many organizations as one of the best ever, and even selected for preservation in the National Film Registry. A Broadway musical will premiere later this year.
