Just Between Frames (JBF) Film Group members met last night to pick both our final film for November of 2018, and our films to see & discuss in 2019. They are some awesom picks!

Back to the Future graphic

Our Take On: "Back to the Future"

written by Patricia

How does Marty McFly, a 1980s high school senior, get his parents together in the 1950s? His father is a science fiction geek who is creatively convinced by Marty that "Last night, Darth Vader came down from Planet Vulcan and told me that if I didn't take Lorraine out, that he'd melt my brain." This is only one of the many things about this film that was enjoyed by JBF members!

Our Take On: "Adventures in Babysitting"

One of the reasons our group picked this movie was the fact that it was a complete “sleeper hit”. We wanted to talk about this phenomenon, and see if we would still think it holds up as a sleeper when we viewed it.
