I am a huge movie fan-especially of fantasy and science fiction movies. So it should come as no surprise that my top rated films fall in both genres.
Interestingly enough my favorite films all are part of a series of
movies. They are: Star Wars, Indiana Jones, The Terminator,
Ghost Busters, Pirates Of The Caribbean, Aliens, Men In Black, James Bond...and
my all-time favorite movie trilogy: Back To The Future.
When Back To The Future Part One came out n 1985 it turned the time-travel
movie genre on its ear.
Everything about the movie struck gold from its storyline, casting,
direction, movie score, special effects and more. Originally meant to be a one-shot movie the film struck a cord
with movie fans and two sequels were produced and released in 1989 and 1990.
Truthfully my favorite film of the series is Back To The Future Part Two
where Marty and Doc have to travel to the future, back to an alternate present
timeline where biff is a powerful and corrupt rich man, and finally back to the
past where Marty once again finds himself stranded.
Recently the film franchise celebrated its 30th Anniversary and to celebrate
that momentous event a new book was recently released: Back To The Future The Ultimate
Visual History from Harper
Design, written and compiled by Michael Klastorin and Randal Atamaniuk with
Forward by Michael J. Fox, Preface by Christopher Lloyd, Introduction by Bob
Gale and director Robert Zemeckis provides the Afterword.

post production. practical and visual special effects, costumes, scripting,
lighting, conceptual art, inside information, cast and crew commentaries and so

Also included are special tipped-in inserts recreating certain key prop
pieces in the movies such as Marty's family photo, the letter he wrote to Doc
Brown, a Tardy Slip, Biff money, a Jaws 19 poster and much more.
There's even a special section on the 3D Ride at Universal Studios and art from
the animated TV series.
