Back to the Future Part II (1989) 66%

Where we’re going, we don’t need roads. BTTF II is notable for the absence of Crispin Glover (contract disputes) and original “Jennifer” Claudia Wells (family issues), but it’s a wacky romp back and forth between multiple timelines in 1985, 2015 (say whaaat?), and of course, 1955.

Available now on: Amazon Prime

Back to the Future Part III (1990) 80%

Nobody calls me chicken! Why does BTTF III work, even as a third installment in a potentially complicated time travel franchise? Because it minimizes the time travel element and has a lot of fun just being a solid sendup of westerns. Marathon all three movies and have a blast. Or just be a butthead.
