Back to the Future is a perfect movie and it’s still as fun today as it was when we first watched it back in 1985. The McFly family saga is one you CANNOT miss.
SPOILER ALERT! Watch the movie before proceeding.
Life Lessons Learned from Back to the Future
Listen to our episode on Back to the Future
Sky & Dusty: Stand up to bullies.
- Marty and George both stand up to Biff and fight back with awesome results. Help others fight back if they can’t do it for themselves. Be compassionate and help others.
Biff (played by Tom Wilson) is the quintessential bully and it’s exciting seeing both George and Marty stand up to him.
Dusty: Use the right tools.
- It helps to have a scientist like Doc Brown on your side to know the right tool. In this movie, Doc Brown used the flux capacitor, a Delorean, the special wrench, the model to explain the system and a well-timed lightening bolt. Bad tool: McFly’s weak binoculars 🙂
Sky: Don’t let insecurities stand in the way of your dreams.
- Marty and George both said, “What if they don’t like it” about Marty’s music and George’s book idea. They also both say, “I don’t think I can take that kind of rejection.” Like father like son but they both overcome this insecurity.
Marty helps George “get the girl”.
Rotten Tomatoes scores:
- The Audience: 94%
