Welcome To Marwen (2019) Movie Review

It’s a very sweet film with a great visual representation of the effects of PTSD. It won’t be to everyone’s taste, but even the darker aspects of the story are handled with such a deft touch so they never cross that line into bleak drama.

Back to the Future Part III Review

Back to the Future Part III (1990) Movie Retro Review By Stephen McLaughlin

Back to the Future Part III is a must see film, but only if you have watched the previous two movies. I do think this instalment is worthy and a satisfying conclusion to the franchise and I do hope that the talk of remakes remains just rumour and not reality. The Thirtieth Anniversary of the Franchise has witnessed the cast and crew reuniting and celebrating the occasion which is always nice to see and also to see them all get along after all this time. The actors certainly look like they are embracing the attention and the memory of these films and looking back, my brother and I came out of the Cinema aged 14 and 9 very happy with what we had just witnessed. Highly Recommend.

Back to the Future Part II (1989) Movie Retro Review By Stephen McLaughlin

Four long years we had to wait to see What happened to Marty and Jennifer’s Kids. In reality those closing scenes to the classic 1985 film Back to the Future was intended to be a joke by Robert Zemeckis. The Director / Writer never intended or had a grand scheme on what happened after the original movie. Remember that “The Bobs” had a hard sell on that movie and thankfully it saw the light of day.

Back to the Future (1985) Movie Retro Review by Stephen McLaughlin

Spielberg understood that this film could and would work and although there is a science fiction element to it, he understood the character development and relationship that was under the surface of the time traveling adventure. The Bobs had their reservations though. Because they both had attached Spielberg in their previous last 3 flops they knew that they would be finished in the industry if “Back to the Future” didn’t succeed. In the Words of Doc Brown….”We Must Succeed” It wasn’t until Zemeckis finally had a hit in Romancing the Stone (1984) that they now had a credible Director who could go to one of the biggest names in Hollywood and the rest they say is (pardon the pun) history.
