    Just broke the tie by voting for BTTF- I haven't seen all of Forrest Gump (I've just seen the Vietnam section in a history lesson) but BTTF was good....

    Can't vote right now as I'm on my phone, but Forrest Gump was a huge let down for me. I thought it was awful. BTTF, however, is one of my favourite films so needless to say, I'll be voting for that.

    If you use the mobile site instead of the app you can vote, :yep:

    But joining in the discussion on either is good as well.

    Easily BTTF for me, a wonderful start to a wonderful trilogy.

    Back to the future has to win this hands down. Forrest Gump is so **** compared to the BTTF films.

    If it's any consolation, I also hate the Rocky and Karate kid sagas. Don't see the appeal honestly.
    I love Rocky. Looking to buy the Blu-Ray boxset soon. It's all I matter of taste. I for one prefer Rocky 2 to the original and both films are in my top 10 favorites. Although, they may drop a few ranks upon rewatches of some other films.

    Guessing you went for the awesome film that is the mighty BTTF then?

    Or are you just winding him up?

    Yep, I chose it.

    It's still ahead by one vote but only one.

    And still plenty of time left to vote.

    I think a few of these could go right down to the wire tbh.

    surprised for the hate for BTTF it is still a classic even my 9 year old brother feels it is a great series despite the fact it is almost 30 years old now. I can watch and relate to all movies all the time. Whereas forrest gump while a great film I find I cannot watch and enjoy it over and over again the same reason why Alien/Aliens at the moment are wining because people can watch them all the time despite their age find something even better or something they missed the first time due to their complexity.

    I found it enjoyable but nowhere near the level of soemthing like BTTF.

    (It's 1 vote down now, you need to go promote BTTF more, I dare you to make a public fb status(If you have it) telling people to come sign up and vote for BTTF)

    Good reasoning as to why BTTF is so awesome.

    Possibly, but compared to BTTF it's way better.
