Doc Emmett Brown creates a time machine with a Delorean, flux capacitor, and plutonium stolen from Libyan terrorists. His friend Marty McFly, high school teenager, is accidentally sent back in time to 1955 where he meets his future mom, who falls in love with him instead of his father. He has to try to return to his correct time, but first, fix things up with his parents or he won't ever be born. From the top tier of 1980s comedy, it spawned two excellent sequels. Won Oscar for Best Sound Effects Editing, nominated for three others including Best Screenplay.
