Episode 78: Back to the Future (1985)

The Bit Players rev up the Delorean for a trip Back to the Future on this week’s podcast on Robert Zemeckis’s classic 1985 film. The guys talk about that year’s slate of films and what exactly it is about Back to the Future that has stood the test of time, especially when compared to the films that the Academy deemed the best of that particular year. It’s a film that will forever resonate with audiences, partly due to its exploration of how we interact with our pasts in the way that Marty McFly gets to be a mommy-kissing fly on the wall of his parents’ teenaged lives, but also by just how persistently fun the film is. The guys pick their remake, from actors and directors to the song that McFly wows the 50s sock-hop crowd with.
