Director Robert Zemeckis introduced audiences to Michael J. Fox in this first installment of the “Back to the Future” series. Marty McFly is a high school student whose eccentric scientist friend Doc Brown (Christopher Lloyd) accidentally sends him 30 years into the past through a time-traveling DeLorean. Stuck in 1955, McFly must be careful to prevent changes to his present. A Vox critic claimed the film was “the most perfect blockbuster ever made.”
