Watch 30-Minute Retrospectives on Back to the Future, Ghostbusters, Independence Day, and More
With Robert Zemeckis stating recently that a Back to the Future reboot would happen over his dead body, the original trilogy may be all that Back to the Future fans ever get. But there's still plenty of gold to mine from the classic time travel movies, as demonstrated by this 30-minute, incredibly detailed retrospective and review, just in time for the movie's 30th anniversary:



The video, which comes from YouTuber Oliver Harper, features a shortened version of the movie itself, followed by little-known trivia about the production of the film, as well as a review. Die-hard fans probably already know many of these little facts, that the original time machine was a refrigerator or that the film was rejected by several other studios before being picked up by Universal, but many of the pieces of trivia are more obscure.

Harper made similar videos for almost every sci-fi classic you can imagine, from Blade Runner to Galaxy Quest (we haven't watched it, but we can only imagine that the Batman and Robin review is hilarious). Here are the highlights, and believe it or not, there are even more on his YouTube page:
