 20 Most Tense Movie Scenes
The Scene: Everything looks set to go as Doc Brown prepares to send Marty McFly back to the future by harnessing the power of lightning – which is about to strike the clocktower.
Except he gets in a right mess trying to sort out the cables when a tree collapses and threatens to ruin everything.

Robert Zemeckis expertly drags the tension out so that you’re on the edge of the seat no matter how many (hundreds of) times you’ve seen the film. Damn. Damn damn.

 Hide Behind The Cushion Moment: Up on the clocktower, Doc finally manages to re-attach the cords, only for the one on the ground to come unstuck. “Aaaggh!” indeed.

What’s The Greatest Movie Summer Ever?
We’re gonna post 6 of the greatest movie summers - reblog your favourite!
1985
Back To The Future: A perennial favourite at TF Towers, Robert Zemeckis’ good-natured time travel adventure pulls off the feat of being slick, giddily-enjoyable entertainment without ever feeling hollow. One for the ages.The Goonies: The ’80s was a treasure chest for this sort of family fare: kid-orientated adventures with a palpable sense of awe. Richard Donner directs, but this is another summer hit which has producer Steven Spielberg’s DNA embedded in it.Fright Night: Not the highest grossing horror flick of the year (A Nightmare On Elm Street 2 holds that honour), but no disappointment either, Fright Night won respect from genre fans and critics as it ran with its wickedly simple conceit: a horror fan suspects his next door neighbour of being a vampire. The remake has a lot to live up to…Weird Science: John Hughes’ The Breakfast Club was also released in ‘85 (but, alas, it didn’t quite fall into the summer boundary lines). Inspired by Frankenstein, two geeks create a beautiful woman who helps them overcome domineering bullies, oppressive older brothers and their own crippling insecurities.Teen Wolf: Michael J Fox’s second cult smash of the summer saw him playing Scott Howard, a high-schooler who discovers he has inherited his family’s werewolf gene. It’s not all bad though, as it seems to make him irresistible to women, as well as turning him into a superstar on the basketball court.

If All Time Travel Films Had Doc Brown…
1. The Time Traveller’s Wife (2009)
The Original: Slushy weepathon in which poor Rachel McAdams finds herself hopelessly in love with Eric Bana, who suffers from a rare condition in which he sporadically travels through time. It’s something to do with his genetics, you see, probably the result of some in-breeding somewhere in the family tree…
With Added Doc Brown: Great Scott! The Doc keeps cropping up like a seedy old pimp, as he tries to ensure that Bana and McAdams stay in the same time-zone long enough to create their young son. It’s “meant” to happen, otherwise the time-travelling gene will die out! And Doc Brown couldn’t have that now could he?
Risk To The Space/Time Continuum: By ensuring the Time Traveller has a son, the probability of someone else mucking up the continuum rises by 100%. D’oh.

We got a visit from the future! Doc Brown and the Delorean turned up at TF HQ, and caused a traffic jam as staff from all over the building raced outside to catch a glimpse and get a photo - here’s Dan, red body warmer in place - posing next to the iconic car (he tried to get in but skyscrapers can’t fit in super cars).
The Back To The Future Trilogy is out on Blu-ray today.
