Not sure I buy the inclusion of Fantastic Voyage, since that movie's whole plot is kicked off by an assassination attempt, there's another attempted assassination during the voyage, and the bad guy dies horribly, but it's an interesting look at sci-fi movies that worked without killing anyone.
Not sure I buy Back to the Future being on the list, either. The movie opens with Doc being murdered, and although Marty's letter reverses that, what are we supposed to believe happened to the Libyans in the end?
