The power of love. Ode to Back to the Future (NOT the typical teenage celebrity crush).

 

The first time I fell in love was not with someone I ever met.

I was 11 year old when, on a Sunday night, I went to the cinema and saw Back To The Future. It was a revelation. It captured me like only Raiders Of The Lost Ark did a few years before.

Didn’t they notice the lack of character development, the misogynist clichés, uninspired direction, stiff acting, out of focus close shots, poor audio quality, plot holes…? I go to IMDB to find like-minded opinions, I express my disappointment leaving a 4 star rating on the film page, I snark at the 10 stars reviews and read only the ones that start with “Two hours of my life I will never get back” and “I opened an account just to write this negative review”. But that only makes me angrier. I change my rating to 3 stars. I realize, once again, that I take films, maybe life, too seriously.

Then I save the night with a good TV series. And the magic happens. Continue reading “I can’t get no satisfaction: lament of the frustrated moviegoer”
