0:44I must say, I’m obsessed by time too, but that many clocks is very freaky.
2:26It’s Wallace and Gromit-esque to have a machine that makes breakfast for you.
4:32Those are some pretty terrible sunglasses.
6:21Is it legal to hold on to someone’s car whilst on a skateboard?
8:08He has a serious case of double denim.
9:20Audition tape. An actual tape!!
9:39Mr C and I both prefer the other Jennifer.
12:44Prefer the other George as well, to be honest.
15:02Is it standard to have cake when you get out of jail?
17:11They’re like me and mr C. She just keeps on chatting and he doesn’t listen.
18:58Woooohoo! DeLorean!
20:47He must have had quite a lot of practice with that remote control.
24:09Why is the DeLorean cold now but never when they travel through time again?
28:56I like the dog has a little radiation suit on too.
33:27Oop, twin pines becomes lone pine.
36:04Peet stop! old garages are awesome.
39:07Is he wearing 3D glasses? He’d almost be in fashion again.
42:09Where he hits his head on the road, it hurts my head.
45:18That’s a whole lot of children she has. Marty has a lot of aunts/uncles.
50:16“They cut off your brother’s hair.” The first sign of the invisibility problems to come.**
52:561.21 Gigawatts!
57:57Freud would have a field day with this.
1:03:52I find it really hard to drink from a glass bottle. Long live plastic.
1:06:40I’m not sure all those sparks are good on a wooden skateboard.
1:09:14That is a great model village. Doc could be on Blue Peter.
1:14:52This film simply proves that 50s shirts are not good looking.
1:17:08There’s not enough saxophone at dances these days.
1:18:59I challenge you to say “Don’ nobody go nowhere” in real life.
1:24:41What a coincidence. He does know how to play the guitar.
1:31:30“Do you have no concept of time?” I love this film!
1:36:49 He actually painted a start line on the road. The things you can get away with in the 50s.
1:42:35The DeLorean IS cold. Who knew??
1:49:53Who parks a car at 45 degrees?
1:51:46“Roads? Where we’re going, we don’t need roads.” Best quote ever.


I’m sure we all know that this is my favourite film in the whole world. That being said, I was in two minds about whether to watch it or not. I was so, over-the-top excited to see it appear on iTunes in HD, but if I Film Watched it, then that was it. It was done. You can only do it once. In the end, though, I couldn’t resist.

It looks so good in HD. When you compare it with the terrible trailer, the difference is stunning. If only you could buy movies in HD from iTunes, I would snap up all three of them. I love that I am watching this film for about the fiftieth time, and I am still noticing things. Like the ice cold car, and the pink bits on Doc’s radiation suit. LOVE IT.

Rating: 5 / 5
