Welcome to the second episode of our monthly Film In Focus podcast. Each episode features myself (Alex Lines) as I’m joined by two of our writers each month to tackle a different film and all the questions and angles that arise from breaking down these films. To celebrate the recent hullabaloo around the 30th Anniversary of the original Back to the Future film, we decided to look back at the trilogy as a whole and wonder why they are so universally loved still. This transitions into other topics, including the past films of Robert Zemeckis, bloated films of the 90’s, great remakes and where the hype went for Steven Spielberg films.

Due to a two-hour long recording session and a ton of different topics touched, we split up today episode, with Part 2, where we check out other time travel films, will be released next week. This episode features recurring guest, writer Julia Smith and joining us is Jay Ledbetter, one of our erican writers.

This episode is spoiler free, unless you’ve never heard of the Back to the Future films before.

Alex is a 24 year-old West Australian who has a slight obsession with film. When he's not frowning at Australia's slack attitude towards film and film-making, he's attempting to crack into the prestigious business of show, by making amateur comedies with his friends. With his DVD collection and wealth of film knowledge in tow, Alex continues to write about film, something he knows gets the ladies.
